  1. So next steps, next are the decks on the line. More precisely the main-deck, the quarter-deck and this for the forecastle. First I glue the metallpart under the quarter-deck in place. Thats`s the current state of the Greyhound.
  2. Hi again, I unbox a new bottle of wood glue und beginn with the Greyhound build. First I build a little helling for my bulkhead framework. Then I do the keel laying an glue some ribs like the instruction shows. In the next step I position the false deck, but it was wider than the recess. So I cut it a little bit smaller till it fits. So thats enough for the first day, I hope you like what you see. I am a beginner in wood building and I try my best. Also I am not a native english speaker and my english lesson at school are long ago, so I hope you understand what I try to tell you. Al the nautic technical terms I take over from the english part of the instruction, when you find wrong words, please let me know by PN. Greetings Gordon

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.
