  1. The Thompson collection was a lot bigger than I expected, very neat exhibit! I thought it was interesting to see some of the design choices the builder made, he didn't seem to care about scale when it came to planking, for example. It was surprising to see so much bone and ivory being used as well. In definitely glad I went.
  2. Awesome! And thanks for the info. I think I'm going to wash up when I get off of work in an hour and head on over.
  3. Is this collection still on display? I am in Toronto for work for a few days. Also, any other notable maritime exhibits or ships in the area?

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.
