  1. Hello Tom, hmmmmm I think the best way to handle your planking is.........put Wood Filler on, then grind well...do this twice and at last you need a second planking 0.5mm Planking made of basswood. This Wood Typ is easier for a beginner to handle. Do not be disappointed if some things do not work the first time. I broke off my first planking and tried it a second time ... then it worked. Nevertheless nice progress and please stay with it I send you the Pictures from my HMAV Supply earlier as Tom´s Block

We move at the end of the month in a house and there I have a Shipyard of 20 m²....coooooool For this reason, I have already packed my entire shipyard and this is already in the new house.

I hope everything goes well and I see you soon again.

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.
