  1. A schooner (or Baltimore clipper) is a nice compromise between a boat and one of the larger ships, and they make a beautiful model.
  2. Model Shipways will also replace any parts that are broken or missing, your fault or theirs. Their Sultana was my first real ship model.
  3. Thank you very much! Here is the Admiral’s finished raven: She loved it.
  4. Quick intermission. The Admiral loves ravens and crows. I carved one in bas relief for her over the weekend. It’s only primed right now. I made it from 1/4” basswood. I roughed it out with my trusty coping saw and did the carving with my trusty scalpels. The #11 blade is a great all purpose blade and the #10 blade works great for altering thicknesses (like slimming down the neck and the wings). I sanded it twice with 220 grit, once before the first coat of black and once after.

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.
