  1. Thats awesome allison, go big or go home right🍻. If i can be of any assistance just message me. Good luck!
  2. Ive finished the boat for the most part and decided to try a water base to display it on. I really didnt know how to do it but figured any major mistake was a layer of primer away from a distant memory lol. The method i chose used insulation foam and drywall mud. After that i primed it with white acrylic paint and started adding layers. After a decent base coat was finished i sprayed it with lacquer gloss to seal it in and then kept painting on top. Another gloss lacquer clear coat provided a perfect surface to dry brush the peaks. Overall im thrilled with how they both are turning out. I still have to attach oars correctly and build frame and enclosure, but these pics will give you an idea.
  3. Took a bit of a hiatus, but back at it again. Completed the masts and spars and got to take my first stab at sewing my own sails. Thank god for youtube 🍻

Some pics of the saturn and tower first... Just because lol. Im waiting on the led spotlights to arrive in the mail.

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.
