Hello all,


This is my second AL kit, and my first post in a ship builders forum. Progressing slowly, probably no more than an hour per week and sometimes much less, mainly enjoying the build process. 

Some pics of the progress are here: https://plus.google.com/photos/110787951766792468149/albums/6032635228534265041?authkey=CM7y0cjvwYXxag


A small request to the members - I have misplaced the AL instructions booklet (would have liked to blame the kids but it was probably me), can anyone post scans of the instructions, I have also sent a request to AL and waiting to see if it's possible to acquire it separately.

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.
