Hi my name is Borden

I have worked as a professional photographer, artist and also I am a journeyman carpenter.

Have built many models plastic, metal and wood the current one is a "big step up for me".

Having a lot of fun reading on this sight, planning the project, doing museum research, going to ship wrecks and getting new tools to make success a reality.  

Turns out do not need some of the tools thought would be good, but have learned I do need others that are not in my kit.

My carpentry tools and photographic equipment will get some use when the project is ready to progress past the acquisition stage.

Hello from Ontario, Canada

Hi Borden and welcome to MSW. From your introduction it seems you've already decided on a model to make. Do you have any type of ship or time period you're particularly interested in?  There's  lots of choice available, from steel battleships to ships of the line to rowing boats. All good fun, all interesting. Sometimes too much choice available - like a kid in a candy shop.


Don't forget to begin a build log when you get started - you'll get lots of encouragement and helpful tips from fellow members.  And have a look at other people's build logs. Often problems that you encounter in your build have already been solved in someone else's log.


Anyhow, welcome again. I look forward to seeing your progress.

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.
