Spray by BegToDiffah - BlueJacket Shipcrafters - Scale ⅜” to 1’ - First wooden ship build

Recommended Posts

We live along the South Coast of New England and sail our 30' sloop in the waters of Narragansett and Buzzard's Bay.  When we decided our fireplace mantle needed something suitably nautical and significantly historic, Captain Joshua Slocum's 'Spray' was an obvious choice, given its prominent history to the local waters.  This is my first wooden ship build and it looks like a good project to help get me through the long gray New England winter.  The kit has arrived, I've read through all the printed materials, and with an impending winter storm due to hit this afternoon it seems like a good time to set up my work area and gather the tools to get started.

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.
