  1. Thanks, I did follow your advice, as the model didn't come with plans I found some pictures on the net and matched it to those. Hopefully I got it right. Vern
  2. Hello, not sure if I have the correct angle on the transom ( please excuse my terminology if wrong I’m from the prairies in Canada. Bluenose II AL kit. Any advice would be greatly appreciative as this is my second build. Kind regards, Vern
  3. Hi all, My name is VERN and I’m definitely a newbi when it comes to wooden ship models. I’m currently on my second build of the Bluenose lI from Artesania Latina. My first was the AL New Viking 1/75. I managed to finish it and it turned out ok. After a lot of reading on this amazing site (wish I had found it during the build) I realize a lot of my mistakes could have been avoided. A brief history of my model experiences. I grew up in the plastic world of muscle car and dragster models a few planes and ships. This grew into the real world of muscle cars where I have built six cars over the past 40 years. My last car was a 1968 Beaumont complete frame off restoration that I built with my two sons. I know I will need a lot of advise on the Bluenose, but after seeing all the amazing builds, and the talent out there on this site I know all my questions will be answered. Kind Regards to all.

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.
