  1. My dad did finish it because he had it on display for years at his house and it was all intact when I got it. I wish I would have thought to take pictures before I removed the sail...
  2. Thanks, Dan. I wonder if I lost some pieces then. I think I will have to go and search the paper and box it was packed away in more carefully. I also think I'll see if my stepmother might have any old photos that would have the boat in it. By the way, what would this type of sailboat be called? Thanks again.
  3. Hi Thsnk you for responding. My dad made this from "scratch". I believe it was done as a scale model for a full size boat he planned to build. He was one of those people who, when he decided to build something, he just figured it out. His main passion was building black powder rifles. I think this photo is what you are asking for?
  4. Hi - My husband and I are trying to figure out how to attach this sail to the mast. My father built this sailboat a long time ago and my stepmother gifted it to us after he passed. We had it on display until a gust of wind came through the house and knocked it over, breaking the boom. We took the sail off to get the boom repaired. Unfortunately, that was about 10 years ago. Now that we have repaired the boom, we can't figure out how to re-attach it. I'm attaching photos and really hoping someone here can help us. My stepmother is visiting next week so we would like to have it back together by then. Thanks for your help - Kathy

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.
