Hi, I'm Jim from Kansas City.  I am just starting a model, the Virginia pilot boat, Swift.  I'm paying heed to the warnings for newbies - the kit from Artesania Latina includes just one deck and the rigging doesn't look too complicated.  The manufacturer is not on the forbidden list - I certainly agree with that policy.  I used to build plastic and balsa models growing up, and now that I'm retired, I want to try ships.

I'm also new to forums of any kind.  I tried to post earlier but I don't see a response so I assume I messed it up somehow.

By the way, I'm a former tin can sailor, so my fascination with ships and the sea go way back.

Hi Jim.  Welcome to MSW.   I just saw your other post and put in an answer to your problem.   I do suggest opening a build log as that way you'll get some help and meet some folks.

Welcome from a central Missouri Royals fan! I also got started with plastic and balsa growing up, and discovered wooden building as an adult. I hope you'll like it as much as I do. I agree that a build log is a great idea. It seems daunting at first to keep up with photos and updates, but I find it actually encourages me to keep working (and to pay attention), while it lets others follow along. Let us know here if/when you've posted 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.
