  4. HMAT Supply 1:64 (Caldercraft kit) first build Updated

    Inspired by the far superior builds of riverboat, kiwiron and Dfell in particular, this was my first attempt at building a kit. I chose the Supply because I am English but have a strong affinity with Australia - having visited many times and lived there in 1999-2001. The 'first fleet' connection was irresistible therefore 
     
    Almost everything on it is from the box and per the instructions. I added furled sails, a rudder chain, a caldercraft jolly boat, barrels, a chimney and a pump though (the latter almost certainly historically inappropriate) 
     
    I tried to imagine the Supply as it would've been far away from the eyes of the spit-and-polish brigade: ploughing between Sydney and Norfolk Island doing what it was made for. Admittedly that sounds like an excuse for shoddy workmanship (and there's plenty of that) but I actually made and left things pretty rough, as if they had been repaired on the go, and it was simply lifted out of the water for the photos. The perfection of execution on Dfell's boat is genuinely astonishing, but that's not the style that draws me. Riverboat managed both excellent execution and amazing weathering - I managed neither but ... y'know ... first attempt!
     
    Other than the mussels (poppy seeds...) and weed (model train grass...) it's just fairly basic knocking about with a dremel sanding drum
     
    If I had my time over again I'd definitely do the planking better (hidden...) try to get the deadeyes more level, and make the rat-lines more consistent, but I didn't fix them because I did want it to look a little asymmetrical and weather-worn

  7. LeTigre - French Privateer 1780 Updated

    This model diorama is based on the Vanguard HMS Alert Cutter kit. The kit is excellent, however I did modify components and added sails and their required running rigging. I chose to place the model in Caribbean waters making headway from the Leeward islands. I imagined the French privateering crew on their way to raid English shipments and plantations on the U.K.'s "sugar islands." I kept the diorama's base in a neutral color to keep the focus on the setting.

  14. Fair American - Glenn Barlow Updated

    My rendition of the frame displayed build of the Fair American. One objective I enjoyed completing was "painting with wood" There is no paint on the completed model, all color comes from different varieties of beautiful wood.

  21. 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.

  23. 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.

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.
