  1. Regarding the Swan Morton products - do you recall the model number(s) of the handles for the blades ?

      The handle I use most often is this one -



      The other one I have is linked below.  I usually keep the brand new blade in the metal handle and swith the used blade to the plastic handle - if the blade is still sharp but not pristine.



      I like the feel of the metal handle - I can hold it for extended periods of time.  However, some have said they preferred the plastic handles.  I have a very large hand which may account for my preference.  Anyway at the modest costs try both the metal and plastic.

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.
