    Lime vs Maple

    I used Maple for the deck planking on my Xebec build. It`s a very nice wood to work. Regards mij

    UK Timber Suppliers

    Two weeks ago, I was looking for a company in the UK who could supply me with a length of Boxwood, and I found a company in Kent called Timberline, 01732 355626. I spoke to a guy called Alan who was very helpful, he supplied me with a straigth piece of Castello Boxwood 1200 x 100 x 52 mm for £60 with delivery and it came the next day. I have no connection to the company. mij

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.
