    1/350 plastic, wood boats and ships.
  1. LOL -- Does look totally wrong! It is nicely done! Look at their Consitution it is even more wrong! Hard to understand why when there is so much reference material/
  2. Is this a Dumas kit? Great looking boat.
  3. http://www.micromark.com/tweezer-sprue-cutter-despruing-tweezer,8012.html This is a great tool for fine work.
  4. Hey Bill what retailer has quality mico tools? Or is this a here and there small vendor thing? Rockler and Woodcraft have some micro but not much.
  5. I found this nice set on micro carving tools, US made, great edge. Very handy on bow making slots in filler blocks for false knightheads. (is that right term?) I got side tracked in "Bowsprint", that turned into a three night project! Very interesting attempting to get "true" hex, taper, flat and round all on one little 6" board! I bought a Cherry and one other 3/8' square 2' long to use instead of Bass. I find Bass too soft to work with because it is too easy to over sand or cut. I can see where a mill would really help!
  6. Very nice looking boat. Quality modeling in plastic is all about painting!
  7. Very nice! I have this kit in the box, was it a good build?

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.
