  1. Looking great Rich! Can’t wait to see these in person once we have our meetings again. Bill
  2. I totally support what Chuck says with regards to the need for a scroll saw assuming you are using yellow cedar and purchase the laser precut frames. I am currently building the Cheerful in cedar and even was able to use a sharp xacto knife to cut out the thicker square tuck at the stern. This is my first scratch build and I am really enjoying it as I am sure you will. The plans and instructions are far superior in my opinion as they are well suited for the novice as well as the advanced modeler. Enjoy!
  3. Bill, No I don’t have a saw. I was fortunate to get all the Cheerful wood precut from Chuck before he stopped providing precut strips. For my next project I will most likely invest in a Byrnes Saw and possibly a thickness sander unless I can borrow their use from some of my ship model club members. That’s one of the real perks of being part of a great ship modeling club. 😉 Bill
  4. Bill, I am also building my first scratch build and I selected Syrens Cheerful. The plans and instructions are stellar. Chuck has the instructions on line so have a look. I think it is a good first step in the scratch build world with the Winchelsea as a nice second step up in complexity. Imho. Bill B.
  5. Congratulations! What a fantastic achievement. This forum is the best tool in the chest.
  6. Great photos Tom! Thanks for sharing them, it really looks like it was a truly great conference. Bill SMSNJ
  7. I found the site through my club, The Ship Model Society of New Jersey. There is no better tool in the workshop than this site. 😉
  8. Beautiful job! I very much enjoyed your build log having also completed the Sultana. Mine does not come close to your craftsmanship. Well done!
  9. Kevin, I just completed watching all your videos on Vimeo and I am now up to date with your latest video on the Thorne. I justed wanted to say thank you for such an informative series. You are an extremely accomplished modeler and a great teacher. As a novice myself, I am picking up many new techniques from you. I also have a Proxxon Pen Sander on its way to my shop 😊. I am anxiously awaiting your next video in the series! Bill B. Currently modeling the Sultana following the Passaro Practicum.

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.
