Swampscott Dory by westphalia - Bluejacket

Recommended Posts

My first ever model boat build and first MSW post. I was in Bluejacket's shop two weeks ago in Searsport, ME and marveled over all their kits and thought I would jump in feet first and give this one a try. Maybe this is the standard and it gets easier with experience but the directions are really more highlights of the build rather than step by step. Regardless, I'm looking forward to each stage and now get to tackle hull planking, woohoo! I'm using a walnut stain instead of the maple color for the inside of the hull, it will nearly match the mahogany seats, hope that will look ok (mostly because I had this handy and didn't want to drive into town). Thinking of adding spar urethane also to give it the shiny poly look, maybe that will lighten the inside also.

Looks good so far. Sharp blades will cut. I always leave a little dna on my models. :)

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.
