Pictured below are the 3 models I have built in the last 3-4 years. Before that it had been decades since I last built a model & they were all plastic planes with plenty of gluey fingerprints.

So I am now in the middle of building Bluejacket's schooner "Atlantic" with most of the hull and deck work done. Since I had no experience with really complicated rigging I signed up for the rigging class offered by Nic Damuck of Bluejacket Shipcrafters and am really happy I did. Great course. I like photographing different stages of my models and would like to start a build blog but have never blogged before so if anyone has any advice about that I would greatly appreciate your input. Right now blogging seems as complicated as rigging! 

I learned about NRG at the rigging class and am hoping it is a good resource for my many questions that are sure to arise.

Welcome! A build log in the appropriate forum is a great way to show us your work , ask questions etc. (there is a way to properly name it with instructions pinned at top of the sub forum) Nice pictures btw

Nice models! There is no one way to do a build log -- think of it as show and tell at a club meeting. Show what your working on and talk about it -- easy peasy!

Welcome to MSW, Jerry.

 

As Chris said, there is no formality to a log.   Show what you're building as you build it is about it.  Asking questions in the log is the best way as your log is reference for answers.

Gidday Jerry and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder.

You have joined a fantastic site where the members possess much knowledge and expertise.

Most members will give both freely.

I wholeheartedly second your comment re asking questions. This is how we can share experiences and provide solutions, or at least ideas that lead to them. I like the standard of your models and I still experience " gluey fingerprints" on occasion.

I wish you all the best in your endeavours,

Mark.

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.
