  1. Thanks Steve and Chuck. Your advice is appreciated. I'm relatively new to this hobby. I'm enjoying it very much and learning a lot.
  2. I assume that we should spray the friezes with the fixative before they are are cut out and applied to the hull. Is that correct? Also, what is the best type of glue should to use to apply the paper friezes to the hull in order to get a nice, smooth fit? Thanks very much, Bob
  3. Your longboat is looking very nice. You are a few steps ahead of where I am in my build. I'm just about to start carving the bolsters. I too would like to know if painting over Wipe-On Poly is okay or if it will create problems? It seems that glue adheres fine to Wipe-On Poly but I'm not sure about painting over it. I also would like to know what is the best way to glue the friezes to the hull and if any sort of sealer or poly is applied over the paper friezes after they are applied?

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.
