  1. Hi, I have updated SeaWatchBook's New and Forthcoming page. It tells of our plans for the rest of the year. www.seawatchbooks.com Thanks, Bob Friedman
  2. Soon, patience, soon. Book two will be on third rates. Bob Friedman
  3. I appreciate the voices of support for SeaWatchBooks. As a lot of you know I am a one man band; sort of leader of the band. I have processed thousands of your orders over the years along with managing authors, editors, designers, computer graphics experts, fulfillment service people and my print management crew. Somewhere in this semi controlled confusion something goes wrong. We try and fix it with various degrees of success. But as long as there is a good supply of duct tape and a hank of bailing wire I think we will be able to keep most of you happy. Thanks for your patience Bob Friedman
  4. Does anyone know where to buy the Wolfcraft MT70 clamps in the US? Thanks, Bob Friedman
  5. Hi, I encourage everyone to write to Grant Walker asking him to finish volume II of the Rogers Collection. The manuscript has been edited,and pictures selected and sized. There is just a bit of work that needs to be done and some bureaucratic hurdles to be cleared so give Grant all the encouragement you can muster. Regarding Vasa, most of the planned contributors are gone and I cannot see any light at the end of this tunnel. It just is not going to happen. Thanks, Bob Friedman SeaWatchBooks

    Hello, Thanks for the heads up. We are trying to get a renewal but we ran into a bit of a problem with Comoro. We finally reached a human being on Friday afternoon and we should have the problem resolved by Monday. Bof Friedman
  7. Hello, There is a great video on YouTube featuring the discovery and restoration of early 18th century launching flags that go with Rogers Collection models. It is narrated by Grant Walker. Use the title 'Launching Flags' to find it. Enjoy. Bob Friedman
  8. Hi, I have finally updated the projects that SeaWatchBooks has underway. There is some good news and some not so good news that can be found under News and Forthcoming at SeaWatchBooks.com. Thanks, Bob Friedman
  9. Greenwich Hospital Barge, Druxey Revealed By now a lot of you have figured out that Druxey, who modeled the Greenwich Hospital Barge of 1832, is none other than David Antscherl. He has put all of his notes and photos on paper and SeaWatchBooks has just published it as a book. Go to seawatchbooks.com for more information. Thanks, Bob Friedman
  10. Glenn, your work is just gorgeous. Could you please update your email address on your web page so that I can contact you. Thanks, Bob Friedman

  14. Hello, ALL copies of the Dutch Merchantmen by Ab Hoving contain a plans portfolio along with the book. If the book was bought at the Rijksmuseum book store they owe you the plans set. They now know this. Write to them and they will send you the set. There has been only one printing of this fabulous publication and it includes the book and plans set for the price of $75. Thanks, Bob Friedman, Publisher SeaWatchBooks
  15. Hello, My printer went above and beyond normal procedures to get the reprint of the Rogers Collection reprinted and shipped in less than two weeks. In my world that is almost unheard of. Hats off to the crew at Taylor Specialty Books in Dallas. All back orders are being filled today and normal order and delivery schedules will begin on Monday so get your orders in so your books will arrive for the holidays. thanks for your patience, Bob Friedman, SeaWatchBooks

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.
