    I finished her in the summer but forgot to upload the finished photos. For all who followed the build, thank you for all your support and advice!

    Thanks! It was a very simple solution, and it looks really great...

    I'm thinking maybe a cutter- I really like the smaller ships of the era- the frigates, brigs and sloops that were the workhorses of the Royal Navy and did so much of the most interesting fighting...

    After four long years, I've finished it! This is a modified version of Model Shipways' Fair American kit. I built it fully rigged with sails, and with bowsprit rigging more suited to a ship of 1800, including martingale stays and a dolphin striker. This is my first really serious build, although I built a ship model before this that turned out poorly, and some smaller models while I worked on this one. I'm really proud of it, and I hope you all enjoy!

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.
