  6. This is splicer's 1st serious build. The kit was purchased at an opp shop for the grand price of $5.00, the kit was started but was obviously abandoned, luckey for me. the only work done was the frames to the false keel with the bow & stern reinforcements. Also the planking of the main &lower decks. the kit was aquired last fFeburary. Will try to work out the limited photo's to get them in the size for posting, back soon splicer.

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.
