  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Liberty Ship SS Stephen Hopkins Updated

    This build is based on BlueJacket's 1/192 solid hull Liberty Ship kit. The detailing is a combination of scratch-building, adding to kit parts, and after-market items, particularly for the cargo rigging.

  15. Gretel - Mamoli Kit - Scale 1:54 Updated

    This is a model I built a few years ago as a gift for a relative.  I lean towards creating an art piece, rather than a historically accurate model.  However, I now strive toward a more accurate scaling of various details, which were not provided in this kit.  I hope to be able to compare this effort with present and future efforts, as I take advantage of all the valuable information I have gleaned from Model Ship World.

  16. Artesania Latina's San Francisco Cross-Section Updated

    Hello everyone. I want to share my build of the San Francisco Cross-Section kit from Artesania Latina. This kit took me about 6-7 months to build. It is a quite easy kit as the hull is very easy to make but the most difficult part were all the details. It was a fun kit to build with a very good quality of the materials and I am really happy and proud with the result. I hope you like it. Tell me what you think!

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.
