  1. Hello modelshipworld! I am Clement and I'm here to present my galleon. I'm an avid fan of sailing ships. I have been learning, watching, and modelling them by cardboard. However, I haven't been building for a long long while until my little brother asked me if I could make a ship (he showed me a picture of the Andalucia galleon replica) and I said "sure thing!" I thought of building it with cardboard however, he wanted to see it float in water. Sure, you can float a cardboard ship on water but it won't last as long as a ship made of wood. And I was looking for other materials and I remembered about popsicle sticks. It was a challenge. I'm having difficulties in shaping popsicle sticks into the right shapes because it's my first time using popsicle stick as a medium for building models. I also don't have power tools to help and I have to rely on scissors and paper cutter to shape them. I designed the ship with inspiration from early English and Spanish galleons. It will be armed with 26 "side cannons" and 2 "chasing cannons". The hull, the frame, everything (except the masts, sails, ropes, and windows) was made with popsicle sticks. I covered the bottom with epoxy to seal it and make it able to float. I then painted it with a water-resistant paint in the colour of "Vida Mocha" and a black marker for the hull reinforcements and "girdles"

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.
