  1. I have noticed in the plans and instructions that there is no mention of installing a brass loop on the traveler before installing the traveler, how ever there is a picture of it on the instructions. Do I need to install this and what should I use as there is no reference to a part number.
  2. I will be honest I have been reading build logs on this forum since January...I will eventually do one and I’m in the midst of doing the blue jacket revenue cutter...however I have found that the holes were way off center and I’m going to need to fill and redrill. I am not looking forward to it. I also have purchased the following....glad tidings, American privateer, Emma c berry and 18th century long boat (all from model ship ways)...would you guys recommend which one I should try First? Or which one I should stay away from until I have a few boats under my belt? I have never planked before but I am looking forward to it. Here are some pictures of my revenue cutter:
  3. Hello! My name is David and I reside in upstate NY and have recently decided I needed a new hobby. I built plastic models as a teenager and young adult but ceased to do so since getting a career and owning a home. Now however, I am looking for a stress relief that is both satisfying and challenging. I have finished a grand banks dory by blue jacket and I am currently working on the Revenue Cutter. I have already purchased 5 other boat kits...so I am hoping I don't give up too fast.

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.
