  1. Completed Model of HMS Diana by JoTiKa Updated

    This is my first foray into model ship building after a scratch-built galleon I made at school some 50 years ago.  Diana took some 3 years to build and I enjoyed every minute of it.  I elected to include all sails in a furled state so as to not mask any of the detail.  A lot of the extra information I obtained from the books 'Anatomy of the Ship: Diana' and 'Rigging Period Ship Models' plus a few others and a few visits to HMS Victory at Portsmouth.

  3. St Helena 1:85 - Constructo - by Zellerfisch Updated

    This is my first ever built model ship. I didn't want to be too ambitious, so I chose a really basic and rookie kit to built. I had several problems during the building process (it would require some really not rookie tool), but I am relatively satisfied with the results. The ship has her own name, Lethe for personal reasons.

  10. Cargo Ship Capri by Artesania Latina - Finished by Jason Builder Updated

    This model had a long journey in both time and distance before it was finished.  My dad built most of it in the 1980's in the Netherlands, and in 2018 I found the parts in the attic back home in Wisconsin, and finished it.  As far as I can tell it is no longer produced.  It is a simple and stout wooden model that I think would be suitable to outfit with motor and remote control gear, though I will not be doing that.  It was great to surprise my dad with the finished product!  -Jason

  11. FD10 Arnanes by Billing Boats - Built by Jason Builder Updated

    This was an enjoyable model to build and sits on our mantle most of the time.  The Arnanes is based on the actual fishing smack "Johanna" built in 1884 at the James Collins Hoad shipyard in Rye England.  The Johanna has been restored and still sails!  Photos of the ship can be found online.  I made many wooden parts, and used wooden blocks and other such wooden and metal parts, in lieu of the plastic parts that came with the kit.  Other modifications included rigging customization based on ships of the time and based on looking at photos of the actual ship.  I built the model in 2015, and in 2018 it decided to take flight off the mantle; she was soundly built and her tight lines and stout hull survived the wreck well, and she is back up on the mantle!  -Jason

  12. HMS Legion, Flyhawk, 1:700 Updated

    This is my first go at a plastic kit. I recommend this kit by Flyhawk. It comes with a couple of sheets of PE. This is basically built straight out of the box apart from a few items which I lost on the floor. I used some Uschi rigging thread (0.03mm). I really enjoyed trying something different from my usual wooden builds. Also working at 1:700 with some tiny brass pieces will help my approach to detail going back to wooden kits at much bigger scales.

  13. USS Peary DD-226 by rcweir - Tehnoart 1:96 Updated

    Built from a kit of USS Ward, this is how I believe Peary looked in October, 1941.  That was the last time the ship was in operationally complete condition.

  16. Royal Yacht Caroline by Delf - Panart 1:48 Updated

    Finally completed after several years. Started with the standard kit but bashed significantly, especially after discovering MSW.
     
    Made and served all the rope using Syren's rope rocket and serving machine, made most of the blocks and many of the deck fittings from old boxwood rulers, and turned all the masts and yards from castello.
     
    I tried the cased model in several locations around the house, eventually going for a minimalist look using a simple table made from a single sheet of bent glass.

  18. Victory Cross-section by Delf - Corel 1:96 Updated

    Started a few years ago to give me a break from other projects. Decided not to rig - the model felt out of proportion as it only shows four shrouds on the mainmast. I treated this as a decorative object rather than an accurate model - the photos show the box I built on an old picture frame to display the cross section.

  21. Yacht Mary by Gregory - Mamoli 1:54 Updated

    This is my Yacht Mary, just recently finished after working on it for over ten years.  Most of the rigging was completed within the last six months.  Lots of 'Chuck' blocks and rope that I made myself. 
    I learned a lot while building this over the years, particularly from the work and contributions of the members here at MSW, and back when Dry Dock Models was still around.

  22. Nuestra Senora del Pilar by marktiedens - OcCre. Updated

    This is my model of the Nuestra Senora from the OcCre kit.  A number of changes were made  - the biggest change was using cherry for the lower hull planking & bleached tanganyka for the decks.

  23. Zebulon B. Vance by ESF from Deans Marine Kit Updated

    The Zebulon B. Vance was a Liberty Ship that was first refitted as a hospital ship under the name John J. Meany and then converted to a personnel carrier with the Vance name restored to ferry British war brides to the U.S. after the war.  My mother was on the first war bride voyage.

  25. La Bounty de Altaya Updated

    Por fin él terminó la Bounty originalmente de Altaya. Hará 19 o 20 años que la empecé. La he ido haciendo a rachas, en distintas etapas. Y eso me ha dado muchos problemas. El casco es de Altaya. La arboladura era una pena como venía descrita, así que hice con los planos de Amati. Pero claro, el problema es que los cabilleros venían posicionados de manera diferente en los planos de Amati. Tampoco en Amati venían las velas de estay y tuve que buscarme la vida en distintos libros. Con lo que al final hice un híbrido que salió como salió. De cerca tiene muchas cosas que hice mucho y que ahora no haría, pero tuve que terminarlo como fuera y no tuve miedo para corregirlas. No obstante, admito todas las críticas que hagáis que seguro que serán muchas y las asumo.
    Tenía que terminarlo y no tener cargos de conciencia de trabajar otros que tenía empezados de mucho más tarde. Ahora a terminar la Pinta.
    Saludos

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.
