  1. Hello MSW! Whew, it's been some time since I've ventured back to this site! Life finds a way of, well, getting in the way sometimes. Nevertheless, here we are! I got bit by the ship building bug again, and went for a smaller ship than the San Francisco that's still on my shelf. The goal is to finish this ship, and then bring the San Fran out of storage to complete that one. Maybe :-). So, the Newport?! What is it? I've attempted to research this particular ship, and there really isn't a lot of information. From the box, we have this description: "At the beginning of the 19th century in America numerous vessels with racy lines were built. They were very fast and easy to head: the famous schooners of Baltimore. They were either busy as coast-guards coping with illegal smugglers or real pirates, or used as escort vessels and troopships." I love the idea of these smaller schooners, so what I ended up doing was adding a bunch to my online shopping cart and had my wife decide which she liked the best. We arrived at the Newport. After a few days of patiently waiting for it to arrive, she came in and I started the un-boxing. My heart sank a little when I realized that the instructions leave a lot to be desired, but I'm confident with this log and the wonderful community here, I shouldn't have much of an issue. This will be my second wooden ship build ever, with my first one started around 10 years ago. You can see that one in my signature. My cat destroyed some rigging and took the wind out of my sails all those years ago, so it's been shelved since then. That's neither here nor there though. Last night began construction with dry fitting the false keel, bulkheads, and false deck. I spent around 4 hours fairing everything up, making things straight, tapping in nails to hold it together. Just before bed I glued it all up and allowed it to dry overnight. I'll have pictures of her current state once I get home later today. I'm really excited to get back to this hobby, and I'm equally excited to see there are only 2 other Newports on this website (unless I'm looking in the wrong spots.) So I'm hoping this log can be used as a learning resource not only for me, of course, but for those that come behind me looking for direction on this kit. As I said, the instructions are almost non-existent, and certainly compared to AL's building books, I need to get used to taking some creative liberties and coloring outside the lines a little. I'm happy to be back, and I appreciate anyone that can come in and say hello, and send some sound advice my way! Please, feel free to correct anything that you see as wrong! I want to make this as close to realistic as I can, and am already planning a few minor changes based on the other two logs I've read through as well. Thanks for stopping by!!
  2. Away we go again. Progress on my build to date.

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.
