  6. Hi all, I am new to this modelshipbuilding thing and I just found out that sawdust is a known carcinogen. Man, I generate lots of it to building the constructo Victory model kit and I started to wonder that maybe shipbuilding can be worse than smoking? I wanted to do it inside my home but now I realized I have to take HUGE precautions...i got a breathing mask, fan, wetting the wood, doing the sanding and power-tool sawing of the wood outside... Have do you avoid the sawdust part of building the ship? Thank you d.

Hi does anyone know how is it possible that a fully assembled model ship Victory is cheaper than the model kit of the same ship unassembled? assembled: https://www.amazon.com/Old-Modern-Handicrafts-Painted-Collectible/dp/B00HUAUSG4/ref=asc_df_B00HUAUSG4/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167114341104&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=15170731145910835365&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9015253&hvtargid=pla-274607123440&psc=1 unassembled: https://www.model-space.com/us/build-hms-victory-ship.html Thank you s.

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.
