  1. Pictures are a bit fuzzy. I will post better ones in the next day or so. Thanks! Steve
  2. I finally got time! Here are a few pics of my Endeavor build! Hope everyone is having a good 2017..Chuck, sorry about them Chargers!
  3. Hi Lacy, Thanks! some pics would be cool! I am currently working on 2nd layer on Endeavour. Here is a lousy picture. The siren rope is outstanding as well as the blocks. Chuck S.! What are You working on? Go Hawks!!
  4. Here is Endeavour so far. Just started the 2nd layer of planking. Not easy!
  5. I am gonna get HMS Endeavour build log started in a few days I hope. Fun build so far!
  6. The rattlesnake is on the shelf for now.. Endeavour is so far fun, but I haven't started the hull planking yet. (one plank at a time) lol. Because The Philly was my first real build, I like the larger scale models.
  7. An open question, Endeavour has 3 decks. Instructions say to attach the decks, then plank.. Would it be better to plank then attach? It seems that it would not matter.. Any advice?
  8. Been so busy working!! Anyway, I am going to start a build log on the HMS Endeavour 1/60th scale. This is an Artesania Latina kit i picked up New for 50 bucks at a value village. I also snagged a Brand New Mantua Astrolabe 1812 kit $25 New. Both look pretty cool, and are complete, sealed package etc. I like the larger size, probably because my Philly build was my first, and that is a larger kit as well. Chuck, are you working on anything?
  9. Hi Tom, Nothing done yet. Trying to figure a way to make one. I wonder if model expo has one large enough.
  10. Thanks Chuck! I am experimenting with it, and really liking the results. Also, I finished gunboat Philadelphia with your excellent rope and blocks! Your products made all the difference! Thank You! Steve
  11. Hi Chuck, just wondering if primer was used prior to applying the Mars black? Thanks! Steve

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.
