      An Incentive to Start A Build Log - New Plan Set from the NRG   03/17/2018

      An Incentive for Starting a Build Log

      The NRG’s Generic East Coast Oyster Sharpie plan sets have been selling out – we had to reorder prints 2X already.

      BUT nobody has started a build log yet.  As an incentive we have decided to reward the first three (3) MSW / NRG members who purchase the plans and start and continue* actual build logs** from the plans. 

      The build logs should be started in the scratch built forum and labeled with Generic Sharpie – by “your ID”.  When we have six or more build logs up and running we will set up a group build area for the Generic Sharpie build logs.

      The winners will be able to pick any one of the prizes listed below:

      Free registration for one day at 2018 or 2019 NRG Conference                  ($145 value)

      Shop Notes 1 and 2 set                                                                         ($60 value)

      Nautical Research Journal – all content set                                              ($145 value)

      4 CD's or 1 flash drive         

      Continental Galley Washington Plan set                                                    ($65 value)

      1 year NRG membership or extension                                                      ($50 - $62 value)



      *“Continue” means that multiple posts containing build log content must be made for a minimum of 30 days after the initial post.  Logs will be tracked by starting date and the first 3 that have continued for 30 days following their initial post will be declared the winners.

      **Note the words “actual build logs” – no fair showing a few pieces of wood and going no further just to win. 


      The NRG has a new set of plans available for purchase with a free 200+ page full-color monograph .  Check the NAUTICAL RESEARCH GUILD NEWS forum below for details.  This plan set is developed for the first time scratch builder with limited tools and experience.  All materials are standard strip stock available from hobby wood suppliers.  However, it is also a great project for the more experienced builder looking for a smaller project to take a break from the bigger builds.  Remember MSW Members who provide us their real name are considered members for the discounted price.  An email or call to the office before you order with your real name and MSW user name before you order is needed for the discount code.

  1. Milk and sugar? Time to remove some dust here and bring some new items in. I hope to show some pretty new artwork in the next few days
  2. Hello Everybody, Maybe You know that I like to sniff around in little second hand shops, garage sales and jumle sales for stuff and things related to fishery and shipping. Most of the times I don't find anything or the price is so high that I can't or don't want to afford it. But sometimes I find a little treasure for a price my missus won't kill me for (if she finds out...) and I take it home to my little 'museum'. It seemed like a good idea to me to make a topic here so I can show You my new findings. First I hope to place pictures from all the items I found up to now and after that I will update every once in awhile to show You my new (shoddy works of art) NAUTICAL findings. Here's the latest Item. I found it totally broken and dust covered in a dark corner of a second hand store. I really had no idea what it was but I was sure it was fishing industry related. The price was € 2,50 and because them money would be used to help people quiting drugs I found that a good price. At home I rebuild it and added some fresh oil on the wood and this is what she looks like now. Untitled by Model Fishingships, on Flickr Untitled by Model Fishingships, on Flickr Untitled by Model Fishingships, on Flickr After some searching and asking I found out what it is. It's a Vleetrol (dutch word) and was used to bring the 'Vleet' (a very big black cotton gillnet) from a horse wagon to the ship or the second floor of the netting manufacturer. I was said they were used up to the 1920's Here's an old picture of a 'vleetrol' vleetrol by Model Fishingships, on Flickr Hope You like my little treasure and next time I show You some really, really piece of kitch! Kind Regards, Kees

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.
