    Travel tips for Southern England

    Ha Ha, I'm also going to the U.K. in May&June… I'm going back to Portsmouth..again….. just too much to take in first time round...….Chatham and Greenwich are marked in... May I make a suggestion re travel?.. Last time (2017) we got a Britrail pass.It may seem expensive initially but when you see how much you can see and the distances you can travel, it is a bargain. I found that almost every seaside village has a museum/exhibit or a story to tell.....fascinating.. Louie da fly is right.. The rail service is terrific and the rail people are very helpful.. Anyway, enjoy!!!

    For Beginners -- A Cautionary Tale

    I have to say that the reason I undertake this hobby/craft is to escape the pressure and B/S of everyday "modern" living. Finish or not finish..... I will put a boat on the shelf if I am not happy that I can complete the next stage competently and take it up again when I am confident of a reasonable result. If one has to struggle to complete a model within a defined period or to a defined standard( aside from those constraints one imposes on oneself) one might call the whole thing" work".......thus negating the therapeutic value of the exercise,,, Anyway ,my two bobs worth. See ya at the boat yard.

    Another new one

    Greetings to all, I have just joined this august gathering and am like a kid in a lolly shop!!! So much to learn, so many projects calling out to me. I have recently returned to model ships after an indecent interval and am really looking forward to getting stuck in. Regards, Danielww

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.
