    I am sure, that a "block tumbler" will "kill" the cleats and even the blocks! Be not such lazy! All these details need to be made only manually and with love! It is better to spend couple of excess days, than then to be ashamed of the minute weakness...
  2. In the Central Naval Museum (Saint-Petersburg, Russia) there is an Admiralty model of frigate La Legere. During 2 years i was busy with measuring this model and preparing a drawings. Then during 2 years i was busy with her building. I will show you my work in progress...
  3. The showcase for la Legère made by my another friend Yiury Calmikoff from Minsk (Belarus)
  4. Hello, Paul! It is rather simple woodcarving. For example, my friend Sergey Kuzmin can do more complicated carving...
  5. I am happy to have my son-modeller too! Next generation
  6. Pieter! I was in your Bretagne in 2012. I took part in Maritime festival in Brest with this model! My friend Pierre Grandvilliers invited me! We could meet each other?

  8. I caught a sudomodelizm (shipmodelling) virus in the childhood. My father built model of the sailing ship of a linden. The smell of a linden fascinated me and I began to build models, as well as my father!

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.
