  1. Hi Tom, LFrankCPA Thank you for the reply. I had a look at the links, they look good, but he does not sip outside USA. but I finally managed to locate a local supplier that sells off cuts at a very reasonable price.
  2. Thanks, but I do not live in US. Is there someone who sell veneer by small quantity on the internet?
  3. Can someone tell me where I can buy small quantity of 0.5mm (3/128 inch) thick oak veneer or nearest, say 2m length (6ft) of standard width ? The suppliers I found so far only want to sell in bulk.
  4. I tried it once and found it does not work well because the glueline is much weaker than the rest of the mateial. I keep a small stock of 0.5mm veneer for spiling. The trouble is veneer is available for a variety of wood but oak veneer is hard to get hold of. I ended up with teak for the spiled strakes and oak for the straight bits

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.
