    Kondzik; I saw a model of a COG at the San Diego, California maritime museum and decided to build one if I found a kit. I found a Dusek kit and I'm about half finished. Your model is fantastic!!! I will learn a lot from your great photos. Thank you for posting them...Moab
  5. As a tool nut I'm always checking out various sites. In my other life I built guitars and the best online site for luthier tools is Stewart-MacDonald (stewmac.com). I've been using sewing needles glued in a dowel rod to apply ca glue. On the Stewmac site I found "Glue Loppers". I've used only one of the smaller size for about a month cleaning it with a lit match when needed. In my opinion they're great. They may be better than needles because they are very thin. They cost about $14 for 12. A bit pricey but I'm hooked...Moab
  6. Thomas; the perseverance payed off in spades. Great model!! Thanx for all the great photos...Moab
  7. Tony; WOW! Really beautiful. If you're looking for some reference on masting and rigging you might want to check out the Panart Armed Launch. I think there's a build on this forum or go to Google Images and input "Panart Armed Launch...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.
