  1. You've made a good start to what looks like a very complex project, Dan! John

    Hello Everyone.

    Hello Rich, and a warm welcome to the forum from 'Down Under'. John
  3. Sorry to hear about your dental woes, mate, but at least the model's looking good! John

    Welcome home, Castos! John
  7. Beautiful work (as usual), Michael. I bet you'll be looking forward to that dinner by the time you have the docks hauled out! John
  8. Coming along nicely mate, but I'm not sure about your steps. I'm no yachty, but the small yachts I've seen have had a seat across the forward end of the cockpit that also acted as a step into the cabin. John
  9. I've just found your build log and will follow your build with interest. John
  10. Sounds like there have been some real changes for the better at Greenwich! I wonder what's happened? Kevin Fewster is still the Director - he's been there since the beginning of 2012 - so there must have been either a major change in policy at a higher level or a general change in museum philosophy. I hope it's the latter - it might filter through to the Australian National Maritime Museum here in Sydney.

    Twelve inch to the foot dinghy

    That's a very flesh looking rudder and tiller! John

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.
