  1. Hi Brian, Your model is fantastic. What material did you use on the Hurricane deck to make it look like tarred. I tried a tissue material, which was too thin, thought of a fine sandpaper, but looked out of scale. Thanks, Tom
  2. Hi Homer, your build of the Morgan is great. What did you use on the deck to either seal it or stain it? It looks like it has the weathered look. Thanks, Chance
  3. Hi John, vodka is the way to go. Have fun with the project, remember it is not a race but a hobby.
  4. Ahoy, I am pulling up a seat with a martini and will watch the progress. My kit is next after a little more work on the Morgan.
  5. Hi Tom, Great looking model. How and when did you drill the holes through the keel for the mounting support posts and what diameter did you use? How will you secure them once the model is finished? Thanks
  6. Thanks. I would like to spray because of the eveness and the fine mist. I was just concerned about the name still showing. I have used krylon for many years on my models except where there is specific colors. I except to start the model in a month and will take photos. Thanks again. .
  7. Hi, When you spray painted the parts with the lettering, where you still able to see the outlines of the word CHAPERON? How many coats did you use. ? Thanks
  8. Hi John, There are no words to describe your work and your documentation. Outstanding. SInce we last chatted the planking is complete from the plank sheer to the wale and the measurement did the trick, it got me off dead center. Thanks for your help and let's stay in touch.
  9. Hi John. Great idea to use the wood. The ship is amazing, I just log on and admire it. Tom
  10. I have been following your progress with great interest. Your work is great! I just started the same kit and your writings have certainly helped. Thanks for sharing.

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.
