  1. Get Dynamite Payton's book Boat Modelingthe Easy Way. Available on Amazon. It explains exactly what you need to do. I have built several of his solid hull models and his explanations are down to earth and you may decide that you will want to build some of his. I built the sardiner Pauline and she is a beauty.
  2. How to fabricate small pieces like stanchions. My hands are too big. They must be tapered on sides and have a notch for an inhale. The stock is 1/8" square. What tools and procedures do I need?

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.
