  1. NMM at Greenwich

    Hello, I'm just back from London and the NMM. They have changed the displays and most sad, the hall with all those fantastic models I have seen there 4 years ago. It looks now this way, WWI ships. There are still models in the other wings, but only a few here and there. But they rebuild a new wing over three floors, it shall open 2018 with more models then ever as Geoff Lee told me. We will see. I also have bee at Chatham. The staff there don't allow to take fotos in the Smithery NO1 exhibition. The models there belong to the NMM and not to the Chatham museum, so they could not allow taking pictures! It is also so dark there, I could hardly see anything. I had an appointment there with a man from the NMM and got the pictures from the ships I wanted, with good light! In this case my visit was a success.
  2. Hello, this are the pictures a friend and I made at the NMM. Because I'm at that time was more interested in the aft part of the ships, I have only these pictures. For pictures of the whole ship see: http://collections.rmg.co.uk/collections/objects/66297.html

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.
