Hello from Maine

Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is John Bollman. I am working on a 1/96 scale Yacht America from Bluejacket and just completed the USS Constitution from Revell a plastic kit with many wood enhancements and under full sail. I am starting the Charles W Morgan a great American Whaler that has survived and is still afloat in Mystic Connecticut. It is a vintage kit I purchased on eBay that was produced by Marine Model Company. Researching the model build has brought me to this community for advice. I am looking forward to this new experience your help along the way. Please check out my build log and offer any advice you see fit. I am always striving to improve my skills in this hobby and am looking forward to your tips and thoughts.

Just south of Portland. Maine has some great seaports to visit and schooner fest to attend. We love Camden. Thanks for the shout out for Maine, it’s good to be aboard and not just a voyeur. Lots of great modeling going on here. 😎

Welcome to MSW. Nice to see another fellow mainer on this forum.  There is so much to learn and share on the forum. I too will be thinking about a lazy susan at my workbench.

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.
