The Journal is now Digital

This announcement is no longer active




The digital option that many have been asking for is now a reality.  This first issue is being made available free to everybody, members and non-members alike, because we are convinced many will want to sign up for the digital option.

WE HAVE UPDATED THE COVER - We have added the name of the NRG’s Ship Modeler’s Forum, – Model Ship World, - to the right of the new title box as the forum has become so widely used and now such an integral part of the NRG.




We have added 16 pages to the Journal and increased the modeling related content.   The additional 16 pages are full color – doubled to total 32 pages of color - to feature more modeling content.

Features of the digital edition:

  • The same content as the printed Journal
  • Viewable on any computer, tablet or mobile phone
  • Full color photos and illustrations
  • Add bookmarks and notes
  • Archive of all digital editions released during your membership
  • Available immediately when each issue is released...no more waiting for the mail
  • New lower-cost digital only membership option
  • Cost-effective for international members

Go to https://www.thenrg.org/digital-edition.php to see the first digital issue.   

The digital edition is available for only $40 or an additional $15 if both print and digital are wanted. 

Existing members - If you prefer to receive only the digital edition (starting with the next issue Winter 2018) or want to add the digital edition to your print copy contact the NRG office to make the change.  Non-US members may want to take advantage of the assured delivery and save with the digital edition for $40 versus the $62 fee for print copies to non-US areas.

New members can pick print, digital or both at the NRG Store – don’t put it off – sign up now.

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.
