  8. Hey mate Gday snowy here from dawin i believe all of the above is true . I highly recommended frank mastini s book ship models simplified. I personally got the amati adventure as my first kit but i didn't start it for about 2 months after i bought it.first i bought books and looked at other builds . But i think most importantly i looked at my plans for the build for over a month to understand everything .i tried understand all and dry fit and glue once Good luck and enjoy Snowy
  9. Thanks mate As i see it they're is no rush so I'll whack em on i love how these ships look when finished. May the wind be at your back arr
  10. So i take it thats a yes to put them on Cheers
  11. Hi guys I have pre made sails on my occre diana kit , all 21 of them. My question is when i did my amati adventure kit it had a 1.3 mm rope tied around All the edges. Do you guys reckon i should put this thread arond the pre made sails . Or when you have pre made sails is this not done. Cheers snowy
  12. Hey mate snowy here nice ship Just wondering because I'm thinking of getting this ship could you just buy the extra timber and double plank her anyway. Keep up the great work

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.
