  1. Some various unboxing photos. I'm hoping to get started next week. This particular kit came with tools and supplies (not that I was hurting for those, my father in law has built a number of models and set me up with a not insignificant amount of tools.
  2. So, this is my first build log here. I've tried my hand at models before, notably the HMS Bounty, but felt I bit off more than I could chew. Hence, I'm scaling it back and trying a smaller model to gain some skills.
  3. Thanks for the welcome and the advice! I actually did find a build log of the exact kit I'm going to be working on, so I'll be referencing that as I go along. ~CE
  4. Hello! First time poster, and relatively new to modeling. I've tried my hand at a few kits before. Mamoli's HMS Bounty was my first attempt, but that got lost when I moved, and I found myself a fair bit over my head in any event. So, I'm scaling back and trying something a bit simpler. In the next week or so, I hope to start a build log for the Model Shipways 18th Century Longboat. I'm hoping I can develop skills there for use on larger models. Wish me luck, and glad to be here! ~CE

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.
