Welcome to another addition of simple boats built by Dave.  I have gone down the rabbit hole of having more kits then years left on this earth.  I can only hope I get to all of them...I can not wait to retire!


so here is the box and insides for post #1...since it was an EBay find, someone had already taken all of the pieces out of the wood blanks and didn’t break them!  I was missing half of the stem so I had to scratch build a new one.  Practice!17FEE6ED-A236-4018-AA90-02001A0B9148.thumb.jpeg.27df9f251284bf2019ba3d1bfcc14e09.jpeg

I decided to do the turn of the century colors, instead of modern day yacht tenders.... so dark green (black green) exterior of hull,  buff ( I did yellow ochre) interior hull,  i did a dark walnut gunwale which I think I am happy with and I chose gunstock for the thwarts...which might be a bit much...I’m undecided on the oars, and mast.

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.
