  1. I purchased the Colin Archer as my first attempt at planking a hull. I did not see a rabbit cut in the keel and I was at what point the strakes should end at the stem and stern end of the keel. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks, Tom Anderson
  2. Since this first plank on bulkhead model I am probable asking dumb questions. The keel and frame are completed and I m going to try to plank it. The wood strips in the kit are 1.5mm x 4 mm. There are 7 frames approx. 1" apart. and the model will be approx 10 long. I would like to replace the existing strips with strips that are 1/32" x 3/16", which are approx. 1/2 as thick. I thought they would be much easier to manipulate. Do you think this would be a good idea. Thanks in advance. Tom Anderson

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.
