  1. Fantastic build! I am buying PE and such for mine, nice to see a good example of how to build it.
  2. Sweet! (Political remark here) 😉 By far the most impressive build ever.
  3. Watching some videos. I get what I am attempting to build, now I am quickly realizing one needs 5 very small hands.....
  4. Best book out there! It seems to be my go to.....
  5. I have been at this for about a month. Getting to the point beyond my experience, rigging.
  6. Plans are not much! Build log coming. Should one use bees wax when rigging?
  7. Modified a bit. Some of the kit plan did not seem realistic and some did not fit properly.
  8. This is basically a training kit. If I wanted truly accurate I would scratch build or get more accurate kit. (Assuming there is such a thing) This kit was on sale and had additional discount applied. Wood ships and boats are such fun to build! Very challenging. Never rigged anything before, I have built several small boats and have current build of brig going. Model Shipways seems to actually be a tad better, especially if one paints ship.
  9. This looks pretty much like the kit.
  10. This is actually a nice looking little boat, I have been almost fanatical about quality. Still missed a bit on planking, but it looks fine! Only I will notice flaws.
  11. Thanks. I assumed it was totally inaccurate. Small boat! Real boats use I-bolts?

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.
