Hello all you wonderful people here on these boards! I've been hiding in the shadows for many years now and i'm finaly ready for the light! I've been building model as far back as i can remember, but only with plastics. That being said, I have bought myself a new Latina Bluenose II Ship Model Kit many moons ago and have since decided to throw caution to the wind and dive in with both feet. Without these forums the seas of this wonderful hobby would be increasingly hard to navagate. Thank you MSW and everyone on deck for the all the help and camaraderie we find here in.


~all the best~

Welcome! If you have not yet had a look at Frank Mastini's Ship Modeling Simplified, I believe that's the exact kit that he used to illustrate his methods.

Welcome to MSW, Nemo.   Give some thought to opening a build log in the kit area.  It's a great way to make friends and get help when you need it.

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.
