Welcome to MSW.   MSW has a wealth of resources here, including build logs.  Goto the Kit area and there's a topic https://modelshipworld.com/topic/17023-quick-find-indexes-to-build-logs-for-kits/  that has a list of all the builds.   It will help you.   Also, give some thought to opening a log as it'll be the best way to get help when you need it and also make some friends here.

I, too, am starting a New Bedford whaleboat, my second try. First was more than a disaster. I found some really good video footage on youtube about whaling and whaleboats, however I am not computer literate so I have no idea how to attach them. You can try New Bedford whaling as a start.

You might want to check out The White Whale, the New Bedford Whaling Museum for some great source books & materials.

Here is a book that has a lot of Whaleboat information ~ I purchased a copy and love it!

 

Hope this helps ~ Rich

Welcome Rich,

 

Another great book that I used to construct small boats for a whaling ship is 

To Build a Whaleboat: Historical Notes and a Modelmaker's Guide Hardcover by Erik Ronnberg.  I think this is available on Amazon for less than $15.00,

This is an excellent book by an excellent modelmaker.

Good Luck!

Yes, I found it on Amazon books at a great price for the hardcover edition.

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.
