    What glue would you recommend for use throughout an entire card kit build? Just to reduce the need for constant switching and save storage and work space.
  2. Thanks for the feedback Steve and ccoyle! It might sound crazy, but I have an interest in commercial shipping. However, I've noticed model shipbuilding is heavily focused on naval vessels. I have the room to work with most scaled models, but not really the space to display them. Most display areas are occupied by university books and soccer gear. In terms of money to spend, it's not a huge amount as a student, but affording kits and the basic tools shouldn't be a problem.
  3. Hi everyone, I'm completely new to the ship building world and am very interested in getting started on my first model. Despite being new to the hobby, I know that construction difficulty varies depending on the type of boat. Which plastic kit would you recommend for a first time build? All help is greatly appreciated.

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.
