This is my dedication to an original passenger steamboat that still exists on lake Geneva (lac Leman), Switzerland. She is over one hundred years old and still carries her original steam engine, which is can been seen through a large viewing hole cut out of the deck in the main cabin. I had the joy of not only once, but two times, upon asking, being invited to descend into the engine room to get an upclose view on her sister ship. They are a spectacular piece of history and run on lake Geneva as tourist and passenger boats, taking people from one side of the lake to the other (the Swiss and Fench coast). She is displayed in a pharmaceutical bottle, under power, with a flock of swans flying overhead.

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.
