  1. In 1975 I started building the Model Shipways Flying Fish (solid wood hull) When I was at the point of rigging the shrouds, the cat tore up the forestays tree tops and masts. Discouraged the model went into the attic. About 8 months ago. I was cleaning the attic and decided to restart the project. Heavy dust was removed and all the broken pieces were fixed or replaced. Now I’m rigging the yard braces and spencer gaffs. Not bad for a 40+ year project.
  2. Although a scale model would sell well, to my knowledge, there isn’t a scale model of the Mary Celeste. The reason is the original plans of the ship have long been lost which makes a detailed model impossible. I believe the model “Marie Celeste” is only a guess of what she looks like based on pictures and general specifications.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
