    You have my permission to use any/all of these photos endorsed with the MSW/NRG watermark should you think them worth using Royal Yacht Caroline (Panart) HM Cutter Sherbourne (Caldercraft / Jotika) Sherborne again, in front of keel former for Diana (Caldercraft / Jotika) - both unfinishedHM Schooner Pickle (Caldercraft / Jotika) - my first wooden boat build!
  2. HMS Victory today... a bunch of photos I took.

    Sadly not... and I live on the wrong side of the country. But you can be sure that if I find myself in Greenwich Cutty Sark will have lots of photos taken as well. I only have a couple as it stands but they do show what her coppering looks like in real life quite nicely.... (and my lovely wife giving an idea of scale)

    Hi Osmosis You're very welcome. Glad they're helpful. Rob
  4. HMS Victory today... a bunch of photos I took.

    I completed a model of Royal Yacht Caroline my father started before passing away, so I have some idea of the privilege and challenge of that task. I wish you and all your fellow volunteers all the best. I'm sure you'll do a great job! Rob
  5. Hi, Not sure if these will be useful to anyone in the middle of building Victory, but I visited today and took a bunch of photos... you can find them here... Flickr photo album I'm particularly pleased with the shot below, including an example of an early 19th Century orange plastic bucket (!) - a perfect example of the thing you DIDN'T see when you took the shot! Anyway, they're there, and if they're helpful to anyone, then I'm glad. Any questions about where the shots were taken, let me know, and I'll attempt to answer them. Rob

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.
