  2. First Post on the forums. Glad to be a member with such a fine group of people. I have been reading the various sections and i am very impressed. I have been a modeler for over 40 years. Mainly Plastic, and Resin kits (Armour, Dioramas, Figures, etc). I fly and build balsa RC aircraft. I have accumulated quite the stash of model kits over the years, which i have finally started to build. ( i know i have a lot ...) I am currently building an older version of the Swift (non laser cut ), as first learning model using Mr. Hunts Practicum as a guide. Look forward to meet you folks on the forum. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Building: AL Swift On the Shelf: Dusek Birieme, Dusek Trireme, MS USS Constitution, MS Prince De Neufshatel, MS Phantom, MS Syren, MS Fair American, MS Rattlesnake, MS Flying Fish, MS Benjamin Latham, Marisstella Ragusian Galleon, Greek Galliot Amati, HMS Victory Cross Section Corel, HMS Victory Mamoli, San Francisco AL, Astrolabe Mantua, Kyrenia, Amati HMS Fly, Corel Endeavour, Mamoli HMS Racehorse, Mamoli HMS Surprise.

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.
