  1. Hate to hear that Steve, I enjoyed watching your progress. Sometimes you just gotta do it though...
  2. What an incredible piece of craftsmanship.
  3. Amazing work, beautiful craftsmanship. What an amazing build!
  4. Love the pictures, hopefully I'll make it to see her one day...
  5. Looking good Tom. I'd say it's a pretty good feeling to finally start hanging the yards!
  6. As this will be my next build, I think I'll watch how yours is coming along while I finish "The Black Pearl"
  7. Coming along nicely. This kit was my first build back in the late 70's
  8. Indeed a major milestone Geoff. I like the idea of stepping the masts, that's how it's done on a real ship. That's how I'm doing The Black Pearl. The kit instructions are terrible so I'm doing my best to rig it using references found on here along with several books I've purchased. Rigging Period Ship Models by Lennarth Peterson has been a great help!

    U.S.S. Constitution by Tom Schongar

    I'm actually building The Black Pearl for my wife. When I told her I was wanting to get back into this hobby that's what she really wanted. I wanted to do the Constitution. So, in order to make her happy I agreed to do The Pearl first. I know the Connie will take a bit longer.

    Hello from Spain

    Nice work Angel! Love the viking ship. Was it a kit or scratch build. I hope to scratch build one of those some day...

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.
