  1. Thank you ...Yes it is for the Sails.
  2. Building the Midwest Muscongus Bay Lobster Smack. Construction manual calls for using floquil glaze on the sails. Any suggestions on a substitute? Thank you.
  3. Looking for any recommendations on a wood filler? Looked a post where someone is using Elmer’s wood putty. Any thoughts?
  4. New member to Model Ship World. Thank you for allowing me into the group. 8 years ago my wife and daughter gave me the Dinghy and Midwest Muscungus Bay Lobster Smack Wood Boat for Christmas.

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.
