Hello, My name is Samuel and I am a 20 year old college student from Texas. 


I was gifted a wooden kit of the HMS Bounty 1:110 (Constructo) a few years back and never got around to building it because I was scared of messing it all up.  Now as I am a little older I started it as an "end of summer project" and I think I am about 3 weeks in and the ship looks good so far.  There is still a lot of work to do, and I know I will not be able to complete it before I head back to school in the fall. 


From reading a few posts here as well as various sources online I have come to a few conclusions.  

1. The HMS Bounty is quite a famous ship because of the mutiny that occurred on board. 

2. Constructo kits are not known for the best materials, instructions, or quality in general. (I'm making it work, so far so good)

3. This hobby is a very relaxing one for myself. (I love the water and I am a certified deep water diver)


Attached you will see a photo or two of the ship in its current state on my makeshift drydock, as well as a photo of the box. 


Here is the link to my build log I just started.

Howdy Samuel,


Fellow newbie here also in Texas.


Build looks good and good luck to you as you continue working on it.


You mentioned you are a student. Mind if I ask where? I work at the A&M campus in College Station.

Hey Doug, thanks for reaching out. 


I'm an aerospace engineering student at the University of Texas at Austin. (TU) for you.  Im starting my third year here and i love it, it is hard work but fulfilling.  I also have a few friends who attend CSTAT and they are fully immersed in the passion and culture of the campus.  Its nice to hear another Texan!

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.
