  2. HMS Cruiser, Caldercraft, 1:64 Updated

    Ok,
    Here is my first build log. I started with Cruiser in spring 2009 and completed it in autumn 2010. It was the first wooden model after some 18 to 20 years. There were certainly some "problems" during the build but I don't remember them anymore. Cruiser is still on the cupboard, and dust is removed (from time to time when instructed)

  3. Le Hussard AL Kit Updated

    These are some photos of the completed Le Hussard kit by Artesania Latina.
     
    It has been somewhat bashed a bit as Original kit could not be built per instructions and timber supplied.

  4. Airfix Classic Series VASA c.1628 Updated

    This plastic model from the Airfix Series is a modified version of VASA. It was completed last week after seven months of building which began in October 2019 (off and on).
     
    The only parts I kept in the build was the complete hull and tops; both which I modified to bring out better details. Everything else was replaced with wood, re: decking and deck furniture, gun lids, gun, carriages, doors, anchor stocks, masts and yards. These were carved out of bass and pine... All rigging blocks of various size (465 in total) were carved out of birch toothpicks.  Fine silk and linen threads were used for rigging and the sails were fashioned out of treated bond paper. Flags are handscripted and painted with custom colors.

  6. Model Shipways Rattlesnake Updated

    It took me 11 years on and off to complete this Rattlesnake. Along they way, I learned about planking, soldering, blackening, rigging, sculpting with clay, and countless other things. I also went from 2 kids to 3, lost a cat and gained two more. 
     
    Whew! Can’t wait to start something new.

  7. Willie L. Bennett Updated

    I finally completed my build of Model Shipway's Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Willie L. Bennett . I had completed 95% of it years ago but could not figure out how to make the sails. My wife finally agreed to give it a try if I bought her a new sewing machine so my $80 kit ended up costing me $480!
     
    This is a great kit with super plans, instructions and materials. You build the kit just like the real thing - including all of the (now invisible) interior framing. A true POF kit. This build is 99.9% out of the box, the only thing I added was the ice sheathing along the waterline near the bow.

  12. LE SOLEIL ROYAL 1/100 HELLER Updated

    Hi Guys,

    Today I would like to share with you my LE SOLEIL ROYAL 1/100 from HELLER. I have been building it for 4 years. It is not perfect, I know it, but it was a lot of fun. I am now looking for my next project and that is how I found this page. i wanted something more complex and more hard then LE SOLEIL ROYAL and that is how I found wooden ships. I know nothing about building this kind of ships. Starting from scrach so I hope I will find lot of usefull advices here.

    Thanks
    Enjoy

  13. Italeri Vosper MTB in 1/35 Scale Updated

    I had been a dedicated modeler from the age of six and got away from the craft by the time I finished college.   After retiring in 2017, I wanted to try my hand again.   I chose the Italeri Vosper MTB in 1/35 scale because it looked complex enough to keep me interested and I had never worked with photo-etched parts.   Nor had I picked up an airbrush since 1974.   
     
    I enjoyed the build and not too surprisingly, I was hooked on modeling again!

  14. USS Truxtun (CGN-35) in 1/350 Scale Updated

    As my second post retirement project, I chose to build USS Truxtun (CGN-35).   Truxtun is near and dear to me--I served on her from October 1979 to August 1982 as a Combat Systems Officer.   
     
    I customized the Iron Shipwright's resin kit by using the following add ons:
     
    One 5-54 Mark 42 gun mount (3D printed plastic) Mark 10 standard missile launcher with SM-2ER missiles (3D printed plastic) Two AN/SPG-55B missile fire control radars (3D printed plastic) One Mk 68 Gun Director with AN/SGP-53 radar (resin with photo-etched brass) SH-2F Sea Sprite helicopter (resin with photo-etched brass) Life raft canisters (3D printed plastic) SLQ-32V3 electronic warfare system antennas (resin) SRBOC chaff launchers (none were included in the kit)(resin) Two quad Harpoon anti-ship cruise missile launchers (resin) Three of the four ship’s boats:     Whale boat, officer’s launch and captain’s gig (resin with photo-etched brass) Vulcan Phalanx point defense guns (resin) SPS-48 and SPS-10 radars (resin with photo-etched brass) Triple and double bitts (resin) Anchor chain (steel) Ship’s anchors (3D printed plastic) Two five bladed propellers (brass)  
    In addition, I scratch built the propeller shafts.
     
    I learned a great deal in building this model that will substantially improve the quality of future kits.

  19. Annapolis Wherry Updated

    After losing momentum working on my America, I felt I needed a way to ease back into the shipyard.   Some time ago I saw some pictures of the Chesepeake Light Craft Annapolis Wherry and liked the sleek lines.  I bought one of their kits several months ago, but only started on it about a month ago.   Due to local lockdown, I limited myself to stuff I had on hand.  In normal times I probably would have used a bit more wood filler in places, and maybe another coat or two of primer, though overall I am (mostly) happy with the end result.  I was also mostly happy with the kit itself.

  23. CANNON JOLLE 1801 Updated

    From the 1/72 scale Master Korabel kit. Built between 12/2018 and 5/2020. Pretty much straight out-of-the-box except for pre-sewn sails replaced by scratch-made ones.

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.
