  1. I should expand. Been modelling for neigh on 60 years, but mostly plastic. I have completed, almost, other A/L kits, the Swift and the Harvey. And am currently planking the San Fransisco 2. Bending for the bow proved to be horrible to say the least. The problem was just about fixed with the purchase of an electric bender. Still, need to sit and watch the "pro's". I may have a fix though. Billings boats have a mahogany that is 1.5 mils thick rather than 2. As the planks for the bounty are walnut, they are going to be as bad as they were for San Fransisco 2. They are 2 mil's thick. I'm going to look to see if Billings has a 1.5 plank. They will bend much better.
  2. A new Member here, first time anywhere. Is this May 2019. I ask because I'm about to start the bounty. Just want to watch the planking of the hull for a start

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.
