On Lake Geneva, Switzerland (Lac Leman) there exists a very tiny island only big enough for a massive tree to grow, it is called L'ile de Peilz. Le Demoiselle, the larger of the two, seems to be chasing the L'Aurore which is a smaller open transport vessel called a cochere. Each of these boats, in reality, are reproductions of some of the large transport boats that once frequented the lake transporting everything from cargoes of wood, rock, and even barrels of goods like cheese. In winter, the tree has an almost magical, white appearance, though upon a closer look, you'll find that it is only this way due to the what is left behind from the comorans that use it as a winter perch. These two boats are displayed in a five liter pharmaceutical bottle.

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.
