Greetings from a newbie

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've been lurking and reading some excellent recommendations on this site. All feedback has been appreciated and has helped in my first ship build. I have done my fair share of plastic models as a younger person, and more recently HO and N modeling in railroad. I recently picked up a vintage scientific Cutty Sark model at the local thrift store. So this is my first attempt at a wooden ship model. I am probably 90% complete after two weeks of work and am very satisfied with my piece. I have just completed the standing rigging, and just now attaching sails and running rigging. Anyways, just wanted to say hello, and I look forward to learning as much as I can about this wonderful hobby.

Welcome aboard, Mr. Foss! I used to dabble in trains in my youth and still have my N-gauge stuff boxed away somewhere. Perhaps you saw the recent post on Rod Stewart's layout? Turns out he is quite the accomplished modeler.


Warm regards,

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.
