  1. Aren't you already building the Caldercraft kit?
  2. Your suggested method is how I recall doing it Bob. Any joint will be well hidden by the cap itself.
  3. Thanks guys. So far Latham looks good fiddling around with things Chris. The fittings package looks decent and the Ronnberg plans (other than the rigging sheet) look good. I picked up Chapelle's "American Fishing Schooners" book and can tell it will be a nice resource. Build log to follow once I get something concrete going. Should be a nice change form the warships!
  4. Thanks Wayne. I've enjoyed the ride through Granado and Sophie. Going New England fishing schooner next with MS Benjamin W. Latham, so we may be diverging a bit!
  5. The video is fantastic Wayne, really shows all the work you put into her. Well done!
  6. Great to see her finished Wayne! Love the display idea, it looks fantastic. Nicely done!
  7. I used Maple on my Cruizer, much better than the Tanganyika. 4mm is fine for width.
  8. Looks like an interesting build Mike. Good luck with your foray into plastic! I've had the itch to build some plastic lately after not having done so for a few years.
  9. Thanks guys. I'm doing better now for the most part, it's just been a very long road. Hope to go back to work in a few weeks. Next up,, Model Shipways Benjamin W. Latham:
  10. Sophie is complete, and has been for a while but just getting around to getting pictures up. I've been through a rough patch health wise, with four hospitalizations and two surgeries over the last few months. Hopefully on the road to full recovery at this point. Anyway...hope you enjoy the final photos, it was quite an enjoyable build, and with a few changes I highly recommend the kit.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
