  1. Hi Richard, looks like you are coming along nicely, I think the Lobster Boat kit was a good choice for your first kit, I was toying with buying this one just a few weeks ago, great looking little boats. I live in Missouri as well, I am in a tiny town close to the southern border in about the middle of the state east to west. good luck with your build, I will be following along. you will find plenty of help here on the forum should you get stuck.
  2. beautiful work Patrick! I love the texture that you got on the boiler.
  3. Patrick, your idea to use metal tape on the boiler looks perfect, and I like the glue dots for rivet heads, how did you get them so uniform? my Chaperon is still on backorder but I expect I will be starting mine in a month to six weeks.
  4. Hi Chris, just found your build log today, don't know how I have missed it, I love this era and you are doing a beautiful job, As for your strange modelers affliction I have that exact same problem! If you find a cure for it let me know, I am afraid to count how many unfinished models I have on my shelf.
  5. I have always loved Calypso as well, a few years ago I bought a set of plans thinking one day I would scratch build one. a quick look on e-bay just now I found a set of plans available for $29 they might be of help in your build, which I am excited to follow and wish you the best of luck with it. here is the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/CALYPSO-SHIP-PLANS/193473045731?hash=item2d0be464e3:g:p4wAAOSwFMZWtT3S

  9. Hi Alfonso, Welcome to MSW you asked: "I am wondering if it's feasible in a any shape or form to do this?" I would say yes, it definitely is, you already have the most important thing to do a successful build, your extreme interest. Now we just have to find the best kit for you to start with. Be sure to start a build log, there is a lot of help available to you here on MSW!

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.
