  1. Thank you Chuck and Jack, as I approach that stage I will make a decision on whether or not I will paint. I’ll likely build as intended using boxwood as you described Chuck. JJ
  2. I am a big fan of the boxwood carvings, but I am curious about painting the carvings. Will any of them require painting? I’ve seen a lot of admiralty models with painted carvings. If this is the case then perhaps the cast resin ones would be appropriate and boxwood for ones that need to remain natural finish.
  3. Very impressive work Chuck, I like the edge bending technique. Will be adopting this method for sure. JJ
  4. Hi Chuck, Will you be adding the billets of cedar for planking to your store? I’d like to purchase everything including the wood needed for milling once you have the starter packs available again...ship it all at once. Thanks, JJ
  5. Hi Tim, thanks for the offer, but I believe the current configuration differs from the corne painting of 1805. The book has been pretty helpful as well as some contemporary models of the ship. JJ
  6. I hear ya...I don’t mind paying for some convenience, I have a very small work space/storage. Every little bit you provide helps me continue my hobby. Bringing a saw aboard to mill planks will be a big move! JJ
  7. Hi Chuck, Will you be listing these separately in your store then? I would like to purchase a few sets when your starter packs come in. Thank you, JJ
  8. I’m building constitution to roughly circa 1805-12 based on one of cornes paintings. Not sure how accurate I am but it’s turning out well. Need a lot of work on the transom still.
  9. I do have the book, it’s very useful if you are building constitution as she appears now. JJ
  10. Thank you Tim, it’s still under construction. I will start a build log elsewhere on the project so people can follow. I’ve deviated quite far from the model expo kit, it’s been a lot of scratch build. JJ

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.
