  1. It’s been a while since I updated this...slow going framed the wall and it fit nicely... i have also planked the exterior.... I still have a lot of work to do, I’ve also noticed I’m quite a bit of wood short. So I have been taking from my victory section kit which is also Corel. (Same wood)
  2. You are correct that the last number is the approximate length of the “plank”. Same material, same width and thickness, but they are telling you the length. All being cut from the same piece. I have numerous kits with similar instructions.
  3. Still debating on how to finish this canoe...after looking at all the online pictures I feel like I should try and stain it a cedar like color... I’m torn as to what direction I should go. i feel like it’s lighter then the picture shows...
  4. Welcome! I’m an upstater with both parents from queens/Brooklyn area.
  5. You are really creating a work of “Art” , can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
  6. You know you are correct...I’ll hopefully find some time this week and do something!
  7. If you look in my log I think I said the same thing about being done by the end of the week...nope it was another two weeks atleast lol. Yours is looking beautiful!
  8. Not yet... out of all tasks, I feel like painting and staining takes the most motivation for me. Even though I find when I do it, I over thought and it was simple and quick. My concern at this point is how am I going to stain, etc., the inside with so many surfaces. Where as the exterior is a smooth surface. I’m hoping Art finishes his and I see what he does 😝.
  9. I’m not sure how old this kit is, but there was a lot of dust in the bag of metal fittings...I also noticed it seems there might be two types of this “white metal” as they have oxidized differently.
  10. I did one not to long ago and I think it’s a great choice for a first timer! Best of luck!
  11. Awesome! I had issues regardless of the bevel I put on, now I realize it was because I wasn’t taking into account the twist you speak of. I can’t wait to see it to the end.

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.
