  1. Wonder what this is?

    Interesting find, thanks for sharing ! Looks a bit like the Steam Punk remake variation of the "Flying Dutchman" The stuff for a modeler`s nightmare.... Nils
  2. Hi Jaeon, for scale 1:96 I always use the railroad 1:87 figures (gauge HO), there is no difference in hight.... search there for ships crew. Nils

    Wonderful art again Jim, beautiful arrangement with ship before glacier front, hopefully the waters are broad and deep enough to allow her to turn around there.... Nils
  6. Hello from the swiss alps

    Grüezi Jean Paul, welcome to MSW, and enjoy your stay with your fellow builders, wish you pleasant exploring and much fun here..... Nils
  7. Hi Moxis, I think the British web- sites "Cornwall Boat Models" or "model Dockyard" could provide what you are looking for. They have make Quaycraft clinker Dinghi and bouble ender clinker Lifeboat in scale 1:24, lengths round a bout 200mm, but perhaps do not have then on stock right now. May be worth a try..... They will be quite a cost.., but versa scratch build on your own.. ? http://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/quaycraft-boats-124.html Nils

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.
