  1. Hi DanielD when I did my decks I laid individual planks down and added some very fine black cotton that has been run through bees wax. This gives a great appearance of caulking.
  2. My Ratline did not come out to well so I have decided to do it as the instructions by de Agustina manual.
  3. Fantastic work done here.I t has given me geat inspiration in finishing mine as well. Snoepert

  5. Thank you Martyn, I thought maybe I could follow the rigging plans I have for the SOS which is quite detailed. i will look into Michaels posts to get more info up front.
  6. It’s been a month since I have been able to do some more work. I am getting into the next interesting stage of rigging. can anyone advise where I might get plans for the full rigging for the Vasa

  9. Hi Rick, I finished the SOS last year and it is a beautiful kit. DeAgostini makes a beautiful kit and high quality materials. It was a very enjoyable experience. I find the Vasa a more complicated task but such a joy to work on. Eddie

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
