  1. Hello, My name is Samuel and I am a 20 year old college student from Texas. I was gifted a wooden kit of the HMS Bounty 1:110 (Constructo) a few years back and never got around to building it because I was scared of messing it all up. Now as I am a little older I started it as an "end of summer project" and I think I am about 3 weeks in and the ship looks good so far. There is still a lot of work to do, and I know I will not be able to complete it before I head back to school in the fall. From reading a few posts here as well as various sources online I have come to a few conclusions. 1. The HMS Bounty is quite a famous ship because of the mutiny that occurred on board. 2. Constructo kits are not known for the best materials, instructions, or quality in general. (I'm making it work, so far so good) 3. This hobby is a very relaxing one for myself. (I love the water and I am a certified deep water diver) Attached you will see a photo or two of the ship in its current state on my makeshift drydock, as well as a photo of the box. Here is the link to my build log I just started.
  2. Hi all - I received my tool kit, glue and my model kit today. Although actual building may not start for a few days, i wanted to start my build log and post a few pictures of my current toolkit and ask a few questions. Here are a few questions I have before digging in, with a statement about what i got in the mail first: I had an issue with shipping on my original order ( see my member introduction post for more on this ). Long story short, i have a claim in with the post office for a lost 18th century longboat kit originally ordered. The tools i ordered may not be the ones i originally wanted, because amazon gave me an allowance to spend on AMAZON SOLD AND SHIPPED ITEMS ONLY. So my buying options for tools were limited. Unfortunate. 1) Will this glue work for the model kit? I haven't seen anyone use it, and im doubtful because it "remains flexible". It is a craft glue, but seems to be more for fabrics. Anyone with experience? I have no issue getting the right glue, i only ordered this because of my limited buying options ( see above). 2) I will be doing a full inventory on the kit soon, but one thing i noticed is that some of the metal parts were out of the clear shipping tube upon arrival and bent quite a bit. None were broken. Is this cause for concern? Wondering if I may run into issues because of this down the line. 3) Is there anything missing that is truly vital from the tools in the pictures I posted? I know i may need some higher grit files or sand paper, but the kit was described as a model railroad tool kit. Again, limited buying options due to amazon allowance from shipping issues. PHEW that was a lot. Sorry for the novel, i plan on keeping my posts from here on out lighter and to the point!! Thanks in advance, Ryan (Soup591)

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.
