I am presently contemplating my next step for my model of Newsboy 1854 so I was perusing my American-Built Packets and Freighters of the 1850s by William L Crothers again to figure out what I need to do. This is an amazing book and a font of information about mid nineteenth century American merchant sail. Everything you could possibly need to know is there. It is also very readable. Mr. Crothers put a lot of effort in to this work. I also have have a copy of his The American Built Clipper Ship which is very much the same, but then it would have to be, they’re really the same animal (sorta, kinda).

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.
