  1. Nice innovations and techniques, this will be a beautiful kit Don
  2. Interesting topic, I'll gladly watch this one as the other one is gone now!😉 Did the kit come with just blank blocks of wood?
  3. Interesting, will be happy to watch both!!😀
  4. Hi Steven, I've been watching your build and it is looking great. I thought I would show you a picture of how the toggles are used on my current build the Ragusian Galley(MarisStella). I realise mine is from the 18th century and probably not anything similar to yours but it maybe of interest to you. I will gladly remove if you wish.
  5. Wow!! That is amazing. Would you mind posting some daylight pictures?
  6. One of the kits I had the most fun with was the Batelina from MarisStella. This boat gives you the taste of almost all the elements of ship building besides masting and rigging at a scale (1:10) that is so easy to work with. You will get a taste of planking,, shaping, bending and carving, all essentials of ship building. At a cost of under $100 you are not going to break the bank. They have a link on the homepage. Also check out my build in my signature, I did add a few extras but then that's what the fun is all about. Finally look for a model with a larger scale, !;48 or larger. It is much easier to learn on larger scales and it's not quite as frustrating. Good luck and have fun!!

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.
