  1. Richard, I have been away from the site for a little while and just checked your progress. I am way impressed with your A frame, the impressive paint job with a brush and your sails. I have a lot of work to do, I am hoping to get some good work in this summer, and when I do I will post my pictures for you to see. I also really like the stand, very cool looking. I have a feeling I will be asking you many questions down to road. -Josh
  2. Wow, looks like you have enjoyed numerous hours of tedious work there. Looks great, keep up the good work. -josh
  3. Augie, It is looking great, you have such a skill for attention to detail, very impressed. -josh
  4. Richard, Wow, you are just moving right along. It is looking great. The metal work you have done in my humble opinion is very impressive. -josh
  5. Richard, Well done, it sure is neat to see your progress. Sure motivates me to work on mine. Keep up the good work. You going to build the deck or cabins first?
  6. gerty, The deck turned out beautifully. I am envious of what you have been able to get done. Keep up the good work.
  7. Mobbsie, It is looking great. The planking is looking good. I am impressed with the work you have done so far. Did you say this is your first build? Regardless you are doing a great job. She is a biggen.
  8. Garward, Molodets, krasivaya robota. I loved looking at your build log. You do great work. I see you are from Ukraine, I used to live in Ukraine, How are things on the other side of the world? I never lived in Kiev, but I visited on my way home. Love that city.
  9. Adam, I've never been part of an armada before, let alone a Skipjack armada!!! I'm in. Thanks for the kind words. Hope the home remodels have gone smoothly, or at least have moved forward, ha ha. In my experience remodels never go as smooth as they are planned. Hope you had a different experience.
  10. popeye, It is looking good, great detail and a novice shipbuilder like myself really appreciates the photos, I am able to learn a lot from them. Thank you. Keep up the good work, for what it's worth, I think it looks great.
  11. I have a few questions that I would like to get answered. 1. When it comes to painting the hull, I know I need to sand it well first, then prime, followed by painting. Am I missing any steps? 2. What is the water line for? I see it everywhere and see everyone talk about it, but I'm very unfamiliar with what things are. Never really been around boats and the lingo. 3. Is it better to build the deck first or the hatches and cabins first? 4. in my instructions it says to notch out different parts of the side coamings for the hatch plank. Is this for the roof of the hatch or for the bottom of the hatch? Also am I assuming right with thinking the coamings are the deck beams? Any insight or possible suggestions would be much 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.
