  3. 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!
  4. Hi Nika, I just found your build log and am really excited to follow your build, this is fascinating stuff!

  10. Hi Nic, sorry to hear you had to go through that surgery, after I had mine it took me about 2 months to get back to normal so be patient, be sure to walk everyday it helps tremendously in your recovery, don't let yourself sneeze on any account! I sneezed once and it felt like I have been ripped open again. take care, john
  11. Wow! Kevin, I was just looking at your SD-14 build, fantastic, can't wait to see what you do with this trawler! The idea of a cut-a-way model sounds fascinating to me. will be following your progress eagerly. A few years ago I saw a cut-a-way model of the Morgan at the museum in Mystic and fell in love with the idea of it. Am attaching a picture of Mystic's model of the Morgan.
  12. Me too. If we had enough of us within driving distance of each other we could get a club going. I live in the middle of the state east to west, on the southern border, between Gainsville and West Plains. about 2 hours south of Springfield

  14. looking good Alan, you've done a nice job on the hull

  17. Hi Lon, I just purchased some Mara thread from these folks, it's nice stuff. https://www.wawak.com/Threads/Thread
  18. Hi Kevin, Welcome to MSW! I sent you a pm earlier about the Hyde Street Pier Modelers club. this is a link to their website: https://hspms.org/ and this is a link to the J.Porter Shaw library in Fort Mason. https://www.nps.gov/safr/learn/historyculture/library-collections.htm happy modeling! john
  19. Welcome to MSW from a fellow Missourian. Rattlesnake is a very nice looking model you should enjoy that. If you do make the trip to Boston to see Constitution be sure to go for more than a couple of days, there are so many great museums to see in New England. I did about a two week trip a few years ago and had a blast. Good luck with your Rattlesnake 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.
