Hi from St. Louis, MO

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone -


My name is Brian Hogg and I'm 57 years old.  My latest quarantine project is the Smuggler by BlueJacket Ship Crafters.  I obtained the kit from my wife's late uncle about 20 years ago.  It's been sitting in storage for all of these years.  The hull was for the most part already shaped.   I had to do a little more shaping and sanding and now I'm starting on the bullworks.  This is my first model ship and I'm blown away with the details of the drawings and the quality of the kit.  I'm really excited to get into the project.  I've been an RC modeler for years, a wood worker and I've always wondered what it would be like to build one of these ships.  Now I'll know.  Looking forward to sharing my progress and of course soliciting help from the community.

Hi Brian, 

Welcome to MSW.  I spent 20 years in the St. Louis area.  Enjoyed it.  I hope you'll start a build log.

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.
