Hey everyone. 

Just ordered my first wooden kit ever and have definitely bitten off more than I can chew.. Boy am I glad to have found this site!

Used to build plastic war ships, planes & tanks back when I was in school 20 years ago. Haven't made any models since.
I can def see myself starting another one once this first one is finished though. So my foreseeable addiction with wooden kits has got me a little bit excited but my girlfriend a little bit worried :D.

Look forward to seeing everyone's builds.


p.s. Couldn't be better timing to start this actually... as I've starting playing Sea of Thieves recently haha :)

Hello ThaSandoman

Welcome aboard you could not have landed in a better place to build a model ship.

Remember to start a log, have a look at all the info in the tabs at the top of the page

and to take it easy.

G’day mate,


Welcome aboard! What ship are you starting with? Defo start a build log so we can all follow along.

I’ve nearly finished my first boat, have started my second and have my third sitting on the shelf ready to go!


Also, Sandoman a reference to the legendary surf hack that was the Holden Sandman?

Sandman Panelvan indeed. Great guess!
One of the nicknames I got in highschool due to having a similar surname.

I bought the Billing HMS Bounty 😬
Just posted a help plea about it under General actually.. 


Thanks for the g'days fellas.

Just posted my $0.02 in your link, now I’m off to bed. Luckily a lot of the Moderators will be popping in to say hello and will be able to offer some sage advice.

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.
