  1. After realizing that I can’t put a pin through the block due to the fact it will block the rope from passing through, I had to redo all my blocks again...haha! Anyways I am considering this project complete as the tools do not really interest me.
  2. I screwed up the windows on my tugboat Taurus and I told them I’d pay for the windows and door (probably about 10 pieces total)...it took a while but they sent them free of charge! Great customer service for sure 😊
  3. Slow but steady...made some hooks for the blocks. Would there be hooks on both ends of the blocks?
  4. I have used it with success, applies nice and sands easy.
  5. welcome to the site, your dinghy looks great!
  6. I assume you emailed them? I usually got a response within 3 days and would receive the part that was missing within 7-10 days in the mail.
  7. Thank you so much! I was nervous at first, but I am happy with the decision 😊 Thank you for your compliments!
  8. Did some rigging on my carronade...only took me three tries lol. I also did some seizing...again took me three tries.
  9. Welcome! Is the Essex you plan to build the Occre version?

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.
