  1. Good day all, I've been browsing the forums for the past couple of weeks as I begin my Enterprise build (my first). First off, thanks to all for the contributions, it's already been very helpful to me. I've got to set myself up to transfer the pictures I've taken thus far into this thread, hopefully I'll have time this weekend. I've been reading through the many other Enterprise build logs but haven't been able to get a clear answer on something, I was hoping to get some feedback. I'm close to starting in on the hull planking, and my question is this: have most people done a second planking using the veneer? As well, what is commonly used to hide the nail holes once they are removed, by that I mean any specific brand/color well matched to the wood? I can assume this is a relatively moot point if the veneer is used ... Finally, are most people using water to soak their hull planks? I've seen the references to ammonia but not sure how widespread this is? Thanks all, looking forward to posting more as I progress, Mark

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.
