  1. Thanks much for your help on this and how to use CA glue which I will be using on my second planking .
  2. Dear Acaron 41120 Thank you very much for that idea. I think it might be very helpful as I proceed. While I don't have syringes, I do have several plastic squeeze bottles with small tip openings that might also work. Andy
  3. Can anyone tell me what is the ratio of water to PVA for a "watered down PVA" solution to be used in Planking? Thanks?
  4. Dear Shane- I have just started working on building the HM Badger, and i was hoping that you can help me with a questions. Am I correct that the Gunport Pattern Former gets removed after the the Gunport Patterns are fitted to the bulkheads? While this may be obvious --from your and other the pictures of the build out as well as the placing of the Upper Gundeck -- I didn't see removing the Former in the instructions. Any information you can provide me on this would be most appreciated. Thanks much. Andy
  5. I am starting to build the Caldercraft HM Brig Badger, and would appreciate any suggestions on how to follow the instructions to taper the keel from 5 mm at the fore end of the bearding line to 3 mm at the stern, taking off equal amounts of material from both sides. How precise does this have to be at the stern and going forward to the fore end of the bearding line?
  6. I have been working on the Blue Jacket Revenue Cutter and earlier comments from folks have been very helpful. I am now up to the rigging work. Does anyone have pictures of a completed model with all the rigging work done? Thanks much.
  7. Thanks to everyone who responded earlier to my query. Your posts were very helpful in getting me to where I am at present on my building the Blue Jacket Revenue Cutter. I am now up to putting in the masts and the rigging. Does anyone have large, detailed pictures, showing the standing and running rigging?

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.
