Model from Science Museum Archive of unknown George I First rate. Model shows many interesting details, including cabin floors, one of which appears to be the points of the compass.

The model separates at gun-deck level, and I have now added photos taken later with the top half removed. The pump dale is shown, as is the margin plank with some joggling. The taper of the deck planks at bow and stern is also well shown. WARNING: note added 29th Sept 2015. Following comments from Druxey as part of discussion on deck planking, all viewers of the lower deck planking shown here should be advised that this may well be a later addition to the model, and should not be relied upon for historical accuracy.

Some small parts are missing or damaged, most notably the starboard quarter piece.

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.
