  1. Come on guys everybody here uses glue, little help please
  2. Just rec’d my first ship, Albatros by OcCre, they say you need 3 different glues, White or carpenters glue, Fast drying glue, and Contact or cobblers glue, question, do i need all three, thanks
  3. Barry, just ordered the OcCre Albatross today, wondering if when you had a sec, you could go over anything you would do differently, or something that wasn’t in the instructions.Thanks
  4. was happy to find a finished log on the Essex, read where you did not advise buying this kit until revised, i noticed that your post was several years old, to your knowledge have they revised the kit, also i am looking at the Oc cre Essex is it any difference to your knowledge, one of the replies i had on asking if this ship was recommended for first time builders, he said that it was, it would seem from your post that it may not be, your thoughts, if not could you recommend one thanks
  5. Totally new to wooden ship building, i am retired,75, and plenty of time to devote to a new endeavor, have done a lot of reading on the craft, from what i understand picking your first build is critical, so i guess my first question is how to go about choosing my first build. I have virtually no experience in model building, i built plastic car models as a kid, have a fair amount of tools, one of the kits that caught my eye doing my reading is a Essex by Oc cre , is this a good option for beginners, thanks for your time

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.
