  1. Flying Fish.

    No problem Jean Pierre and thanks for the kind words. It was a tough build for me so your words really are appreciated. Happy building.
  2. Them Old Jokes

    Young Sally was digging a hole in her back yard when the next door neighbour walks past. Neighbour: Hello Sally, what are you digging a hole for? Sally: I'm burying my goldfish Neighbour: That's a shame but it's a big hole for a goldfish isn't it? Sally: Yeah, it's inside your damn cat!
  3. My attempt at the Flying Fish. Built by Donald McKay in 1851 at East Boston, Massachusetts. She sailed from Boston to San Francisco in 92 days, 3 days short of the record held by her sister ship Flying Cloud.

    Beautiful work EJ - how long did she take to build?
  6. This Spanish Navy's 4 masted Naval Academy Training ship was launched in Cadiz on the 5th March 1927. She has a crew of 36 officers, 143 trainee sailors, and 70 Marines. Her total length is 94.13 metres. My first attempt at rigging.....and it could be my last :)

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.
