  1. Hi Kensaku. A very nice cutaway carrack. Could you open a topic in kit built models forum? We like to see the build if you have recorded it photographically. Certainly, if you do any more kit builds of this quality, we would love to see your work as it progresses.

      Hi Dick. I'm happy to be complimented on. I develop a model kit and sell it. I wanted everyone to know and posted. Do you want to see something like the attached image in the process? Kensaku

      Yes, photos like this as well as information into the research involved in the kit development. This seems to be based on the Martinez-hidalgo Santa Maria.

      OK. In the future we will also make the process of development public. Thank you:dancetl6:

  2. Hello from spain to everybody

    Me gusta mucho Dick
  3. Fantastic! I have been waiting for this. One of the wrecks appears to be an at least 2 masted merchantman from the mediaeval period with stern castle preserved. I need more pics . I have congratulated Prof. Jonathan Adams, the director of the project by email. (But he never acknowledged, standard behaviour for academics, I find) Dick

    Thanks, Zeptrader. Yes I do, but I understand that they do not allow construction logs on this gallery. I could repost in the scratch build forum if needed.

    Thanks, foremast. I may due a full hull model at a later date. Cheers Dick
  6. This is a reconstruction of the venetian carrack of circa 1445 from the contemporary manuscript of Zorzi Trombetta da Modone. The reconstruction was as much as possible done using available contemporary evidence for ship design.

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.
