USS Syren by Hipexec - Model Shipways - 1:64 - building as USS Argus

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know if another model kit builder offers a kit for Joshua Slocum's "Spray" except for Bluejacket and the Banned Chinese knock-offs? I'm planning ahead for a ship that doesn't have elaborate rigging since my dexterity is shot. I once saw a kit the allowed you to lift the cabin enclosures to see the living arrangements Slocum had.


BTW i'm starting the yards and spars.

I've used up most of the rigging blocks I had left over from other kits. This kit came with terrible blocks that were unusable in my opinion. I ordered more rigging blocks from Ages-of-Sail that should arrive in a day or two. So much for this kit!

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.
