  11. Hi everyone I just watched a video on the hms victory walkaround and seen they had electric lights set up. It just occurred to me how hard it would have been in the old days with just a lantern, because i take it not everyone on board had their own. I suppose some were set up at night but for how long and how many. Has anyone got views on this subject. I just find it interesting to know what they did.

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.
