  1. Can anyone tell me the best way to deck the ship. The plans say a 2 butt shift system, each one 10cm in length. Is it best to cut each plank 10cm first then glue? Also what's the best way to simulate the nail holes at the edge of each plank? Any help appreciated.
  2. I've started. All aligned and looking good. And to think I nearly bought a Billing Boats building slip. Good job I read some posts with advice and decided not to.
  3. Finally got parcel and here it is. Opening the box you get the parts Underneath the parts you get 3 plans - Keel, Deck, Sails. You also get the laser cut boards. I must say the laser cut boards are very well cut, no splinters or breaking. This kit also has FREE cream sail cloths included and an extra set of planking. The instructions say it's just for the beginner in case you are not happy with the first result. Ok let's get building tonight all being well.
  4. Hi all. I am new to MSW but hopefully will abide by any rules. Apologise in advance if I have completed title incorrectly. I am awaiting my delivery of the Enterprise 1799 from Constructo kit number 80837. I also own the previous kit 80822 which does not have the colour manual. Hopefully I will start my build log with pictures very soon (hopefully tonight/tomorrow morning). After reading many comments about what to look for, I like the look of this ship the most hence choosing to buy. I have made many plastic, resin and smaller wooden boats including planking and look forward to starting this project. Please feel free to add any comments and recommendations you feel necessary and I always welcome criticism where it is due. Photos will be uploaded shortly
  5. Your kit is like mine. It did not come with any manual only instructions and 2 plans. Constructo can give you the manual on the new kit but there are some differences.

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.
