  1. It's been a while since we introduced a new how to ship modeling CD so it's been long enough. With all the emphasis on lighting at the model shows and on line, I am proud to present "Lighting Model Ships" by Dave Kopielski. Dave recently finished an astonishing 1/350 scale model of the USS Carl Vinson adorned with tons of LEDs in various colors and sizes and he wrote Flagship Models a CD to show everyone just how he did it. I'm not taking pre-orders because I expect it to go on sale by the weekend for a reasonable $12.95. Get a first look at: Lighting Model Ships
  2. Flagship Models here. For those who do not know, Oklahoma is located almost dead center in the US. I chose to be a sponsor after being contacted by Kurt. This site is a wealth of information for the ship enthusiast. While I am a American Civil War guy, I have a real interest in rigged sailing vessels. I look forward to learning new information and modeling techniques to improve my skills as well.

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.
