  1. Finally received different size of wood, I cut and plan to rigging with it.
  2. Hi Chuck, David, Thank you. If you are going to build it, I found that build instruction might has several typo. 1. page 5, figure 2, #34 should be a, b, c from top to down, instead of c, b, a. 2. page 7, figure 5, #22d should be #35 3. page 7, figure 5, #22, #23 is for the deck after main mast. Besides, some parts are missing 1. part #27 missing two piece 2. part #37, #38 and #39 needs to print two copies for both top and bottom side. and I installed #40 inside of freeboard between forecastle and quarter deck, since instructions doesn't mention about it.

  3. Hi Chuck, Thank you for replying my post. This is a great kit, I like it a lot, so surprised that it can be built with paper. I found this kit while surfing Model Ship World Forums: modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/1659-san-salvador-free-paper-model/ and I think it is provided by Maritime Museum http://www.sdmaritime.org/shop/san-salvador-collection/downloadsansalvadormodel.html One comment to this kit is rigging, I think it is simplify version of rigging for this kit, currently I'm trying to rigging it with wood pieces, but I don't have detail rigging info for San Salvador, what I can do is reference to those pictures took by people whom visited museum. Last thing...regarding why I'm interested in San Salvador, I was living in California around 4 years. Tony

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.
