  7. Thank you for that info I'll get right to that but I have one problem that I'm looking at I need to install the main rail my plans it does not show any pictures that I have to cut the main rail so I'm not sure if it's a straight piece or if it's curved in some sections I figured I could just cut it from the plans and put it on the peace wood cut it out but it does not show that so I'm kind of stuck right there

  9. Had a little mishap happened last night cat was jumping around caught the back of the boat and broke it right off so on this boat at the back when building it be very careful because it will break off very easily that's one part of the ship that really needs to be strengthened up first before you work on it at the back at all just letting other people know

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.
