Dear Dmitry, I am new to this forum and I am trying to find information relating to a model I have. But first, I would like to say how impressive your beautiful model is. If you could spare the time, would you be kind enough to suggest how I might identify my clockwork steam torpedo boat - I have no idea whether it is historically accurate or simply an old (and well used) plaything. Unfortunately the deckhouse roof and funnel are missing, but this may have been due to these being removeable to allow access to wind the clockwork mechanism. The torpedo fires, as does the deck gun, and the open bridge allows access to the clockwork motor start lever, and ship steering via the wheel. Turn the wheel clockwise and the boat steers to port. Any information or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Stephen

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.
