  4. HMS Victory by Manfred Burkert Updated

    This model of HMS Victory was built by Manfred Burkert between 1972 and 2012. Some of the pics show the model at the fair in Friedrichshafen in 2018. He is currently in negotiations with the international maritime museum at hamburg regarding the purchase of the model. So one can hope that the model will soon be presented to a larger audience.

  9. 1920's Hicks Marine Gas Engine Updated

    Fans of San Francisco's "Monterey Clipper" fishing boats know that most were originally powered by Hicks single cylinder gas engines. Since the engine was visible in the semi-enclosed wheelhouse, it becomes a necessary but challenging feature in a model. 
    No complete plans have been published for the Hicks, but I was able to photograph a complete engine's worth of original part blue prints at the library of the San Francisco Maritime Park. This 1:8 scale model was then built in CAD, and most parts were 3d-printed in plastic. Most of the brass and bronze parts were investment cast using 3d-printed waxes. Other parts were machined or photoetched from brass and stainless steel.
    The model appeared on the cover of the Summer 2017 "Ships in Scale". Search Youtube for "Yuba Hicks" to see the engine's animated operation and authentic sound.

  10. The Lighthouse Diorama Updated

    Good day to you all
    This is my second diorama, that i built from scratch using Foam, balsa wood, Acrylic colors and kitchen paper towels. I consider myself a beginner in building Diorama models, and relied on my knowledge in building scale ship models from scratch for the scale and painting issues. Actually, I found this hobby very interesting and enjoyed it very much .. working on details like waves, grass and trees .. to me , this is a relaxation time during building the scale boats .. I hope you like it , all your comments are really welcomed .. 
    Thank you very much.

  12. The expedition ship of Willem Barentsz Updated

    At the end of the 16th century Willem Barentsz tried to sail to the East via a northern route - which means via the North Pole. Thick Ice and severe cold made it impossible to reach the East Indies, and Willem Barentsz and his crew had to spent the winter on the island Nova Zembla, in a small hut they called 'het Behouden Huys'
    His ship did not survive the ice and only twelfe members of the crew managed to get home in two small boats one year later. Willem Barentsz himself died during the journey home.
    His ship is a nice example of the small ships the Dutch used end 16th, beginning 17th century.
    Fully scratch build, and then developped into a model kit - available via www.kolderstok.com

  14. Trabaccolo Updated

    The trabaccolo, the most widespread vessel in the Adriatic in past centuries in its various types, only began to decline with the disappearance of the sail and the diffusion of faster and lower cost means of transport.
    The hull of the trabaccolo has peculiar characteristics that are maintained from the Gulf of Trieste to the Otranto canal: the bow and stern of very full shapes, a minimum draft and a length-sleeve ratio, of the most classic, 3: 1, same as the one Roman ancient ships had.
    In essence, this hull, equipped with a wide central hatch, offered maximum load capacity and good behavior at sea. It was basically a cargo ship destined for cabotage, although there was a smaller version, which was called barchetto, dedicated to fishing.
    In its most common version, the trabaccolo carried two mast with lug sails and a long bowsprit with a sliding staysail.

  18. Mounts Bay Lugger Updated

    Not sure if there will be any appetite for my models on this forum. No wood was harmed in the production of this model at 1/144
    She is typical of the numerous Mackerel and Pilchard Drivers see around our coasts until the early 1900 when they were replaced by steam.
    The hull length was around 39' (12m) overall with fore and aft out riggers loa. 69.5' (21.2m)
    The boat is based on the Happy Return, a lugger which is still operating today from Penzance. The back drop of St Michaels Mount in the background was taken from the Happy Return by Len of the Mounts Bay Lugger Association

  19. Round-stern Workboat Stern Cutaway Updated

    This cutaway model of the stern section of a Chesapeake Bay round-stern workboat is based on plans in Workboats of Smith Island by Paula Johnson. I built a full model of the boat back in 2017 but I always thought it would be interesting to build a cutaway of the stern to show how the boat was constructed. It was a short project - just two weeks - but it was a lot of fun. The scale is 1:16.
     
    There are images of the construction process here - http://modelboatyard.com/rscutaway.html

  20. COLONIAL SCHOONER HALIFAX Updated

    A plank on frame model of the colonial schooner Halifax based on Harrold Hann's book "The colonial Schooner" and drawings by Howard Chapelle from the Smithsonian Museum in Washington. The vessel was originally built as a trading schooner in the 18th centuary and was purchased by the British Navy for conversion into an armed topsail schooner in 1768. Drawings of the conversion are held in the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.
    The model was largely constructed fro Ash with pear used for some of the fittings and boxwood for the carved work. The guns are machined from phosphor bronze and can all be fired.
    The scale is 1/16th inch to the foot.

  21. French Naval Xebec (1750) Updated

    This model of a French Naval Xebec Le Singe was built at a scale of 1/32" to the foot from Holly. The hull is solid up to the main deck and is planked with strips of holly shavings. The sails are made of tissue forned over carved wooden blocks to give then double curvature. The rigging is from blackened copper wire. Sea made from plasticene painted and varnished (and looks fine after 28 years!).
    The model is based on a model at the Musée national de la Marine in Paris.  
    The whole model is only about 3 inches long.

  25. Monitor Updated

    Styrene covered plywood and a tape tube made a pretty nice replica. Luckily the internet has a plethora of plans and photographs to use as reference. Interestingly the configuration of the ship changed enough over time to throw doubt into some drawings.

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.
