  1. Thanks, Chris. I kind of figured that’s where this would land. If it were smaller, less significant parts I would remake them. But doing the false keel, frames and decks is a bit too much of a challenge at this point. Off to eBay.
  2. I’m relatively new here and hope that someone can help me out. A relative bought me a kit for the Swift 1805 Virginia Pilot Boat by Artesania Latina (copyright 1982). Unfortunately, several pieces are missing - the false keel, hull frames and false deck. It almost looks like someone started the kit, didn’t finished and I’ve wound up with the remaining parts. Do you have any ideas on how I might replace the missing parts?

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.
