Greetings from Boyne City, Michigan!

Recommended Posts

Back building models after a 30 year hiatus.  Kits have come a loooong way since the die cut balsa wood airplane models I used to build with my dad on Saturday mornings many moons ago.


Bought my first ship kit (CSS Alabama - Mamoli) recently and promptly botched it so badly I scraped it and bought another (Syren Brig by Model Shipways).  I have done much research and reading which led me to this site.  I greatly enjoy following the ship building logs.


This time around, I'm taking my time with the build.

Welcome. Every mistake is a lesson learned. My dad's dad and his brother lived up there in Petosky. I remember seeing the bridge in the mid 1950's.

Gidday Ronko and a warm welcome from the Land Dowunder.

I agree re the quality of kits. Long gone are the days of timber with a printed pattern to cut out with a fretsaw.

You have certainly found the right site for modelling expertise and support.

Wishing you all the best with your build.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
