  1. That's interesting, Chuck. Are any of the following brands legit? YQ, MOHS, Crown Ship Models, Lu Hai Qing Kong, Yuan Qing Models. Keep up the great work and thanks. hipexec
  2. Does anybody know if another model kit builder offers a kit for Joshua Slocum's "Spray" except for Bluejacket and the Banned Chinese knock-offs? I'm planning ahead for a ship that doesn't have elaborate rigging since my dexterity is shot. I once saw a kit the allowed you to lift the cabin enclosures to see the living arrangements Slocum had. BTW i'm starting the yards and spars.
  3. I've mounted the boom and gaff. Next I'll rig them. With my burned fingers and hands, my dexterity is poor and it takes me forever to do even the smallest thing. Oh well?
  4. This a picture of a park bench in my town that is the good tutorial for beginning plankers to see how to bevel their planks to fit the shape of the hull.
  5. Nice woodwork! Please take my message to you in good faith.
  6. I'm happy that I have a stash of leftover parts from other kits since most from this kit are unusable. 😜
  7. I'm building the spanker boom and gaff and instructions recommend to drill the yokes while still in the frame but the holes split anyway. This kit has inferior wood.

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.
