  1. Check out Maine Windjammer Cruises. I sailed on the Grace Bailey a number of years ago. It was an amazing experience.
  2. Mr. Carr retired over the winter and closed his wonderful hobby shop. I have one of his Fitz kits as well. He had a beautiful build of the kit as you entered his shop. I already miss going up to Duluth and visiting the store Dave
  3. Hi Nic: some neat looking kits on that page! You should turn Al loose on recreating the sub, or the Savannah for that matter😃 Dave
  4. Very sad news about Wingnut Wings. They make fantastic and well engineered kits of WW1 aircraft. They never seemed to do a SPAD though. Dave
  5. Good Morning Jorge: is it kit Art. 740? It looks like the English instructions are 2 pages long
  6. Hi Patrick: I’m happy that you are well a and back in the shipyard with your Syren. I’m looking forward to following its continued construction. The copper plates are the best I’ve seen! Congratulations! Dave
  7. Wow Greg, you made fast work of that! The weathering is exceptional. Quite a contrast to your Emden. Dave
  8. Just when you thought you have seen everything! This interesting vessel comes along and just in time for Christmas. The video is excellent as well. This jumps to the top of the wish list Dave
  9. Looks Incredible Dave. Your whole build log was an wealth of inspiration and education! Dave
  10. Welcome aboard Mark ! Beautiful model of the Fitzgerald! It looks too big to be the Carr’s Hobby kit, did you scratch build her? Dave
  11. Hi RGL: In the States we refer to them as "the Greatest Generation" I think for good reason. I have never made it to the Pacific battlefields, but have stood on both Utah and Omaha Beaches in France in awe of what they did. What is your process for etching the armor belts on the hull. At first I thought they were scribed, but they looked raised in your pictures. Dave
  12. Jeffrey: after taking a look at the first picture in your log of the unfinished Hull to your finished ship I think you should be very very proud of your accomplishment! Great work! I look forward to your next project. Regards, Dave

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.
