    Which is the best Victory?

    Beware of kits on ebay, Remember the old saying " You get what you pay for" usually there is something missing. check the build log of canoe21, he made the AL kit look like Caldercrafts Victory Joe

    Be careful with ordering OCCRE kits from Ages of Sail, check the difference in prices from them with Cornwall Model Boats in UK, there is a major difference in US dollars, shipping charges are probably included in Ages prices on all kits from them, not only OCCRE.
  10. Thank You Sjors on your information on no English instructions on the Montanes. I have been following your build on the San Ildefonso, excellent photos and build. I wouldn't need English instructions with the information you have provided here. Thank You again Joe
  11. Ricardo, Does the kit have English instructions? I have heard that the OCCRE kits lack good English instructions. This is something I would definitely need. Thanks Joe
  12. Your workshop is like your model, unbelievable. Joe
  13. This is one of the top builds on this forum, excellent. So much to learn from, Thank You Joe

    Why is this kit so expensive?

    Major changes at Model Expo, see post from Marc who owned Model Expo years ago. Joe
  15. Hank, Good luck with your build. It will bring back memories of the battleship New Jersey with us in the Gulf of Tonkin, Yankee station. Joe (USS Oriskany 68-70)

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.
