The NRG is now offering the latest in its series of educational tools for the ship modeler: the Half Hull Planking Project.  The purpose of this Project is to teach modelers how to plank a hull using spiling techniques.  Even a novice should have no trouble learning this technique with the materials and instructions provided.  The tools required for completion of this kit are inexpensive; even a Dremel is optional.    The price for the kit is $52 for NRG members and $65 for MSW members.  The kit will include everything required to build the kit except the building board.  The manual will be available as a download.  If you are interested , please contact the NRG office at  info@thenauticalresearchguild.org.

We can now take orders for the Half Hull Planking Kit

The number of kits on hand is limited due to the lead time for the laser cut parts.  We will only take orders for the number of kits on hand.

 

We are awaiting the basswood sheet material that is due very soon – everything else is in stock now.  The kit is not yet listed at the NRG Store, and when it is, we will update this, but we can now take orders through the NRG Office.  Payments by credit card or PayPal can be accepted now.  Call the office directly or send an email.  See the NRG web site for the phone and email.  (Not listed here to thwart robots/spammers) 

 

The price is $65.00 for non-NRG members.  NRG members get the member’s 20% discount price of $52.00.  Prices are plus shipping.

US shipping is $10.00.  Canada shipping is $20.00.  Other non-US shipping is $26.00.

 

Shipments will be made as soon as the wood sheets are in stock – expected shipping is the week of 10-22-19.

US shipping is $15.00.  Canada shipping is $20.00.  Other non-US shipping is $26.00.

The final shipping weight was a bit less than earlier calculations so we have been able to reduce the US shipping to $10.00.  Unfortunately the weight difference doesn't affect non US shipments.  We will refund the $5.00 for those who paid the higher US shipping.

 

The shipping date has been moved up to starting 10-16-19.

Thanks Kurt. Do you know offhand what service you will use for UK orders? My interest is to make a 'best-guess' for delivery date (for domestic reasons).

Looking forward to it.

For US purchasers who have already paid for their kit, your refund will be issued once we have mailed out the kits, which should be in a few days.

Thank you for your patience.  If you still have a PayPal request pending, I will cancel it and issue you a new one with the lower rate.

PLEASE HELP US WHEN ORDERING

 

Please help make it easier on the office as we are finishing the conference registration process along with the usual membership renewals, etc. by providing the following information when emailing the office about purchasing a kit.

 

We are getting emails saying “I want to buy the planking kit” without a name or address or how you want to pay.  This makes it necessary to send an email asking for this information.  Also, the prices are listed here, please don’t email the office asking how much the kit is or how much the shipping is.

 

If you want a PayPal Invoice sent, we need to know your name and PayPal address.  We also need your complete name and mailing address in the email – please don’t make Mary send emails asking for this information.

 

If you are using a credit card the best way to order is by calling the office.  Or by email, please provide the name on the card, your name and address and the card number and expiration date and security # off the back side.  Feel free to send the card details in a separate email.

Thanks

We are mailing the first 6 kits today.  A bunch more are ready but pending payment.

The office sends tracking numbers when kits are shipped.  As the PDF instruction manual isn't yet posted for download it will also be emailed.

If emailing your credit card info, I usually recommend sending the first 8 numbers in one email, the second 8 numbers in a second email and the expiry and security number in a third email.  It is more secure that way.  Calling it in is even more secure, but since we are not open 24/7 we do our best to accommodate our customers.

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.
