  1. Contact cement is a terrible choice. I have used contact cement for kitchen counter tops an once it touches the surface there is no adjustment. Titebond 3, clamps and patience is the way to go.
  2. I found that doing all the backstays last worked in the tensioning issue.
  3. Two of the most beautiful and awe inspiring place on earth: Glacier National Park and Arches National Park.
  4. Dan I absolutely love the concept of this build. Brilliant idea and execution.
  5. You need to watch the sheet curling when you use those dedicated wood glues. I use CA when gluing sheets because you don’t get the curling, I use the PVA (Titebond 2) when gluing strips
  6. Could you get them 3D printed locally somewhere. There are usually clubs around that may be able to help you out. My Audio/Record shop guy is a Laser/3D hobbyist on the side and he does stuff for me all the time.
  7. What type and size of boat? Sounds like a great adventure had by one and all.
  8. Posting a build log ENCOURAGES others to build the kit so I am pretty sure that build log would not be allowed. I have built plenty of non pirated kits without posting a log so just build it without a log and take it as an education in buying. Personally after what the Chinese do with quality control on dog treats, killing and poisoning hundreds I don’t buy anything that states Made In China.
  9. Mel Gibson is currently filming a movie called Destroyer which is about a ship off of Okinawa.

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.
