  1. Good evening all, I have a very basic question to ask and I’m sure it’s been asked on the forum before but as I am unsure of the correct name for the bits a forum search hasn’t helped so I will apologise in advance. I have just started the rigging on my fishing boat but I can’t get the standing rigging to hold tension as the brass eyes/pins that go through the gunnels keep pulling out. How can I prevent that from happening? Thanks in advance Rory
  2. Hi, yes, not far from finishing, once I figure out a few bits and bobs and how to do some things. I saw that one company had recently released a Scottish fishing boat that has peaked my fancy but I can’t for the life of me remember who it was!
  3. Thanks for the info, it’s one of the things I was going to ask about as I’m none to happy with the look myself, it’s an old hang over from being a Royal Engineer.
  4. Hello everybody , my name is Rory and I’m an addict plastic aircraft builder who has strayed into the world of wood. I was told about this site by a Mr James Hatch and though I’d swing by and pick some brains, ideas and tips to help with my first build. Hopefully , in time , I will be able to give something back to the forum. This is what I’m building at the moment, it is my first attempt and I’m enjoying it immensely. Helpful criticism is always welcome. Please excuse the phone photos, I’m worse at photography than I am at 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.
