  1. I always do all my standing rigging before adding yards and sails.
  2. It is going to be a beauty. Can’t wait. Is that figurehead, a work of art, going to be included in the kit?
  3. Lighting. You need excellent lighting and a vintage stereo setup.😎
  4. “The Trumpeter kit is an enlargement of the Revell kit and all mistakes of the original Revell kit have been carried over to the Trumpeter model. “ sounds pirated and then enlarged...Just sayin’
  5. The bolster on the Medway Longboat is on the outboard of the Bow and this one is on the inboard. Wonder why?
  6. I use a steam cleaner and a form. The form is made by tracing the deck shape onto a piece of 3/4 ply and cutting it out. I then attach the forward end of several planks to the form using a spring clamp, hit it with steam and bend it holding it in place with additional clamps. I then steam the whole thing again. All in all the steaming process takes under a minute. You can either dry it with a hair dryer, heat gun or do what I do and just let it dry naturally. Easy peasy.
  7. I think you interior looks great. I would stain it and put some wipe on poly on it. Once you paint the exterior hull it will look just fine. I bought a small steam cleaner on Amazon for $30 that I use for steaming wood.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
