  1. Hello from Texas!

    Welcome, Andrew. Facebook is good, but not the greatest place for build logs, etc. This rabbit hole is sooo much deeper. I love it here.
  2. Here's how I planked my BB Cutty Sark deck 20 years ago, to cover the unsightly printed planking. I'd do it very differently now...😔
  3. Thanks for all your kind words. I've been probing around this forum for a few days now, and I'm in awe of the workmanship and good will of all members here. It's a nice place to hang out, and I think I'll be sticking around.
  4. Hello. Thrilled to have found this forum. I’ve built the Billing’s Boats Cutty Sark, the Artesania Latina Swift, the Aeropiccola HMS Prince (small) and the Panart Royal Yacht Caroline. About to begin the Caldercraft HM brig Supply. Can’t wait!

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.
