  3. The Belgica, 30 m. long, was a Belgium expedition ship. He started the voyage on August the 16 in 1897 to Antartica. after 1 jear of hibernate in the Antartica, the Belgica return out of danger and arivert to Antwerpen on November the 5 in 1899. It was a verry successful scientific expedition. The crew consist of 19 people. Frederick Cook was the doctor, he is from U.S.A. you know, the famous Nort Pole Discoverer Amundson Roald ?He was on the Belgica, the second Lieutenant. About the model of Belgica: I made my first model of Belgica on scale 1/38, about 20 jears ago. You can view this model in the museum of physics in Brussel, in the Antartica room. Now I remake the model for my personal ship collection on scale 1/48. I collect me new detail of the ship, and so I hope to make the most precise model from the realistic ship in 1897. I begin with build many parts of schip; The weehouse, compas, ladders, steamwinch........The same I build also the hull. It's a different part of working. So, it's my first posting here, and I'm sorry for my English spelling. I learn at moment the Englich language at school. I thanks your accept.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
