  1. You will notice a few "pinned topics" at the top of this group project area. These pinned topics were set up as an area for all of you to discuss those related subjects as it pertains to the Medway Longboat project. If you have a question or comment related to them please post within those topics so everyone can easily find them later. For example, There will be a pinned topic on planking your longboat. Please post any questions you have about planking in that pinned topic or in your own log for "your" longboat model. Other than those pinned topics, we ask that you only create a build log of your own. Please title it similar to the example listed below. "Chuck's Medway Longboat (1742)" This will make it easier to read if at any time in the future we have to move these build logs somewhere else. It will work just like any other build log. This forum should not have any topics in it other than the properly named "longboat build logs" and pinned topics. Should you want to ask a question or post something, make sure it is posted in either a log or one of the pinned topics. Dont start a new topic. If for whatever reason you guys feel there is a need for a new pinned topic because your discussion doesnt relate to the ones already there....just let me know and I will start another one for you. You know the drill....this basically works like all of the other group project areas. Feel free to ask any questions about this group here. All questions and comments are appreciated and very helpful. To join this project, you must purchase a longboat kit. This group project will have a two parts. First there is the hull. A complete kit containing everything you will need to complete the hull is available. The complete kit costs $175. You will however notice upon linking to the kit that the price is listed as $210. You must send a private message to Chuck to receive your coupon code to save $35 off the cost of the kit. click here to buy kit Then there is a secondary mini kit for masting and rigging available should you want to add those details. Price to be determined. Add link here

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.
