      New Plan Set from the NRG   03/17/2018

      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.

    Hi Hugh, Welcome to MSW. I have purchased two Artesania Latina kits and in my experience you will need to check were the kit has been manufacured. If it is made in Spain the quality is OK. My experience with second kit is an Artesania Latina made by their subsidiary in Hong Kong and the quality is horrible!! Good luck. Renato

    Hello Keith, and welcome to MSW. I am 72 and still enjoying building wooden ship models. The only difficulty that I have is that In Cape Town we don't have any winter therefore building during the 7 months of summer is very challenging. More then often i have to stop working on the model as it is too hot. Cape Town is running out of water. Renato.

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.
