  1. Just found this build log-- I'm really looking forward to this! Bill M.
  2. I think Model Expo and Sam, the kit's designer are well aware of the problems with the Essex kit and are working hard on doing fixes. Sam has said he hopes to have something early next year. They are saying that they will supply customers with the new and corrected parts. Personally, I'd rather have the corrections over a refund because I really want to build an Essex and I do not want to return the kit. If no corrections are coming, which doesn't seem to be the case, I'll keep the kit and make do with what I have. Bill M.
  3. Sam, That is great news about the kit for the Essex rig! With the full realization that I am being selfish here (I am very interested in the Essex, while not as much concerning the Phantom), I will anxiously await the issue of the rigging kit! Thanks Sam and thanks ME! Bill M.

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.
