  1. Scale plane builder turns to the sea

    Welcome Aboard Rob, I am fairly new to shipbuilding as well having come over from the scale RC world. This forum is a tremendous resource with some real wonderful people. Wayne
  2. Plank bending tool

    Walter, Thanks for the tip. I used my sealing iron to bend the cheek knees on my Kate Cory and it worked like a charm. Cheers, Wayne

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.
