  3. My painting has improved greatly since using some of tips above. Thanx to all...Moab
  4. Mike; not sure this will help basically because I live in Chicago and there’s a couple of excellent fine hard wood yards in this market. I go to Owl lumber yard. They have a broad range of cutoffs many with awesome grain patterns and you can’t beat their prices. There may be a yard relatively close to you. Your pens look fantastic.!!...Moab
  5. Vaddoc; you mention that you seal the wood with a water based wood sealer. Would a water based polyurethane work...Moab
  6. Great info guys. I can’t use an airbrush and have yet to paint a model to my satisfaction...Moab

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.
