  1. Welcome! Looks like a nice little project there. Definitely as Mark says above, look into the “restoration“ build logs here on the site as they do have a lot of great information
  2. Dave that puzzle looks like very nice quality. With your inspiration I have finally started my pandemic puzzle. Its gonna take a lot longer than yours do but maybe be able to finish by Christmas Little puzzle picked up at the Herreshoff museum during our most recent NRG conference wife has declined my request to work on the bare table and remove the thick mushy tablecloth so the cardboard is a bit better surface

  5. The base is starting to look great it’s gonna be a wonderful addition
  6. Welcome. Resurrecting a build is a great way to get back into the swing of things. Looking forward to seeing your progress
  7. Welcome. Definitely check our paper section mentioned above. Lots of great examples there

  11. I like the look of mica. You find it in craft stores and it is layered and you can easily peel off a bit and cut it with regular scissors. It looks brown when thick but the thin slices are very clear. It gives a very nice period glass effect something like

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.
