  1. I have already contacted them but no answer so far... guess I'm on my own!
  2. Yes, there are no drawings, only a booklet with photos of the kit and some instructions. The strange configuration near the keel I was talking about was an optical illusion due to the different wood colors...
  3. Hi, I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but I've acquired a ship kit of a Spanish galleon and I can't find any information about the ship. From what I have searched the kit is based on the plans of Vincenzo Lusci - Galeone Spagnolo 1607, but I can't find the original plans and the kit doesn't have any plans. I have almost no experience in wooden ship models, but I'd like to have at least some historic base to give me a direction. This is the kit: https://www.disarmodel.com/nivel-4/27-san-luis-galeon-espanol-del-s-xvii-8436552881446.html Thank you very much for your help
  4. Thank you all for welcoming so well in this forum, as soon as I receive the galleon kit I will start a building log.
  5. Hi, my name is Marco and I live in the Azores. I'm 43 and have no experience in this area... but that is about to change soon! I've ordered a kit from Talhoer - Disarmodels and against all advices the model I've choosen is the spanish galeon San Luis. https://www.disarmodel.com/nivel-4/27-san-luis-galeon-espanol-del-s-xvii-8436552881446.html I know this might sound like I'm bitting more than I can chew but I'm sure that with lots of patience and the help of this forum I will be able to complete it. If anyone has any experience with this specific model or other similar ships I will appreciate your help. Thank you all and happy modelling!

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.
