  1. Hi horschtl i myself built the long boat and for a first timer i found it to be a good kit not to difficult to do ,and if you have the latest version of the kit with the dvd it should be a pleasant build , but beware of glue spill on the inside of your planks it can be seen on the finished model .also the ribs are exposed so the plywood edges are visible you should have more of the thin second planks than you need so you could lay some of these on the surface for a nicer finish ( i didnt but wished i had ,but i covered all the other surfaces of the ply . it just looks better) one other thing the thread for rigging is a little furry, rigging thread from caldercraft is lot better ,any way enjoy your build ( my current build is ALs marie jeanne and the instructions for it are an absolute joke)
  2. Hi marcel im building this at the moment and i must admit it throws up some interesting problems ,i.e the transome but you get round it eventually if you dont mind id like to point out a useful video set on YOUTUBE its by a guy called davao look for davaoshipmodeller, he does a full build with visual comments ive found it very usefull so far .... happy modelling and dont be afraid to do your own thing ,its your model it dosnt have to look exactly like the box pics
  3. I would be very proud to be the the builder of this ship, absolutely excellent
  4. Hi mark sticker here a while back itold you of the endeavour rep that will be based in whitby ,well a few months ago i visited whitby and the endeavour was in, sadly its a big disapointment the hull is welded steel ,the shrouds are held in place with shackle bolts and from what i can gather it is more for education about life on board ship , so still a great idea to come up for whitby theres plenty of maritime history to see and soak up
  5. Hi mark Have you seen the news about the endeavour replica thats based in the north, if you havent then on or abouts the 25 of may this year it will be towed down to whitby to settle there for good and become a tourist attraction so you could have a little holiday and check out the ship .also i would recomend the pannet park museum its a cracker ,( take alook at thier web site ) ive been many times , as idont live too far away ,also the GRAND TURK berths there from time to time and welcomes visitors aboard, and if you do get to whitby then make sure you try proper yorkshire ale !

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.
