  1. Keep up the good work, will be following along I got mine off ebay for a steal but wife says I cant start mine till I finish the Rattlesnake.
  2. Wish I would have started mine when you started yours, would be following along step by step, Now everytime I do something I keep saying "should have done it this way" Keep up the great work
  3. I am building the Rattlesnake and have a question about the capstan, on the quarter deck where the capstan is where would they have stored the capstan arms ( dont know the official name)
  4. You are correct, 5213 was my badge number suffered a fractured back in 2 places broke my heel in 5 places and almost cut my nose off, finally had surgery on my nose (nasal valve collapse) and have to have surgery on my heel again
  5. Well after a 20+ year break getting back into it, Many moons ago bought the Rattlesnake and then life put the project on pause, last April I got hurt at work and have been sitting around the house well one day pulled the box down and started. The Dr says its great thearpy but its hard to sit for any length of time. I have found this site very informative and I see the mistakes I have been making but they say you learn from your mistakes. I have found a deal on e-bay I couldnt pass up I got an AL Constellation which I hope to do a build log on.

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.
