  1. Just for general information. Chuck’s videos can be downloaded from YouTube. They are very good. Tim
  2. Thank You Chuck! This is the best thing that you could have done. I think that sight helps us better than words. Tim
  3. I ordered the cherry set because I may want to use a mix of the woods. Planking to be yellow cedar. The deck to be basswood, and trim tobe cherry. Just a idea that I have.
  4. Chuck, Thank You very much for doing this. This helps all of models like my self ( little talent) but love Ship models. Tim
  5. Just started my assembly of the stem. Info is pretty clear. Put the stem together gives me a better idea how large this model will be. Wow!
  6. Ab, Please check the You tube videos that Tom Laurie has done on Silk span sails. He has 3 videos that are very helpful. Also My wife a I were in Amsterdam two years ago. I loved the Rix and the ship gallery. Thank You for what you have done for our Hobby. Sincerely, Tim Murphy
  7. If you want current photos of the stern I could take them and send them to you. Tim
  8. The parts have come and they look great. Chuck, Any idea when you might see the frame sets from Blue Jacket? Tim
  9. I thought the same thing, but that’s not the case. Take a good metal ruler and place it on the group of small square blocks. You will notice that each block is 1/4”. That’s your scale. Tim Murphy
  10. I have two of the three parts on order. Can not wait for you to restock the frame set.
  11. Constitution has been restored to Her 1815 appearance. This is based on Her last drydock period which was 2015 to 2017. Tim
  12. Chuck, I have joined the group an have access to the plans. Can I down load the four pages on to a memory stick and take it to staples and get correct size plans? What do I tell them for a correct ratio? Sorry, I feel really dumb about how to do this. Thank’s Tim
  13. Have you used the Anatomy of the Ship (USS Constitution). It can be a great reference, especially on the rigging and other ship work. Tim

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.
