  1. SWAN CLASS SLOOPS PLANS are now available from seawatchbooks.com. With permission from David Antscherl and Greg Herbert we have reproduced the plans they developed for the Swan Class Sloops series of books. We have reproduced 100 sets so first come, first served. Bob Friedman
  2. Hello, I know that I have some deterioration in my web site concerning confirmations but all the documentation for the creation of my web site went up in smoke along with the house , cars and everything else of my web master in the Santa Rosa fire. My little business cannot afford the cost of building a new site so I muddle through with what I have. I am a one man band and I am sorry if I provided bad service to anyone. Thanks, Bob Friedman
  3. Hi, We have just updated our plans for the rest of 2019. Go to seawatchbooks.com to get the latest information on forthcoming projects Thanks, Bob Friedman
  4. The Ketch Rigged Sloop Speedwell of 1752, volume I Greg Herbert and David Antscherl have teamed up again to bring you the sloop Speedwell 1752 in three different modeling forms. The book, and its plans, provide instruction on building the model using plank on frame, plank on bulkhead and solid hull using the lift method. So now you, the modeler, can choose the method of hull construction of your choice. Book one and its plans build the hull while volume two, which is being worked on, will finish some deck work and then mast and rig her. We are hoping to have that volume ready by early 2020. Please go to our web site seawatchbooks.com for more details and ordering information. Thanks, Greg, David, and Bob F
  5. Hi, Speedwell volume I is on press now and is scheduled for release Feb 1 I will announce it on this site and on the SeaWatchBooks site. Stay tuned. Thanks, Bob Friedman
  6. Many old printing facilities used grain up blocks for the floors around the presses. They absorbed spills and gave a good "foot" for the pressmen. The only problem was if they ever caught fire they were next to impossible to put out. Bob Friedman
  7. Hi, SeaWatchBooks Google Chrome email site crashed along with some other sites. We are dead in the water in answering emails. Does anyone know how to fix Chrome. Thanks, Bob Friedman
  8. THE ROGERS COLLECTION OF SHIP MODELS AT THE US NAVAL ACADEMY, VOLUME II IS ON ITS WAY FROM THE BINDERY IN MICHIGAN TO ITS DISTRIBUTION CENTER IN MO, VOLUME II COVERS ALL OF THE THIRD RATES IN THE COLLECTION AND CONTAINS OVER 500 PHOTOS , MOST OF WHICH ARE PRINTED IN HIGH DEFINITION. WE ARE ACCEPTING ORDERS FROM OUR WEB PAGE, SEAWATCHBOOKS.COM NOW AND WE WILL BEGIN SHIPPING ORDERS ON TUES OR WED OF NEXT WEEK.
  9. Hi, I have updated SeaWatchBook's New and Forthcoming page. It tells of our plans for the rest of the year. www.seawatchbooks.com Thanks, Bob Friedman
  10. I appreciate the voices of support for SeaWatchBooks. As a lot of you know I am a one man band; sort of leader of the band. I have processed thousands of your orders over the years along with managing authors, editors, designers, computer graphics experts, fulfillment service people and my print management crew. Somewhere in this semi controlled confusion something goes wrong. We try and fix it with various degrees of success. But as long as there is a good supply of duct tape and a hank of bailing wire I think we will be able to keep most of you happy. Thanks for your patience Bob Friedman
  11. Does anyone know where to buy the Wolfcraft MT70 clamps in the US? Thanks, Bob Friedman
  12. Hi, I encourage everyone to write to Grant Walker asking him to finish volume II of the Rogers Collection. The manuscript has been edited,and pictures selected and sized. There is just a bit of work that needs to be done and some bureaucratic hurdles to be cleared so give Grant all the encouragement you can muster. Regarding Vasa, most of the planned contributors are gone and I cannot see any light at the end of this tunnel. It just is not going to happen. Thanks, Bob Friedman SeaWatchBooks
  13. Hello, Thanks for the heads up. We are trying to get a renewal but we ran into a bit of a problem with Comoro. We finally reached a human being on Friday afternoon and we should have the problem resolved by Monday. Bof Friedman
  14. Hello, There is a great video on YouTube featuring the discovery and restoration of early 18th century launching flags that go with Rogers Collection models. It is narrated by Grant Walker. Use the title 'Launching Flags' to find it. Enjoy. Bob Friedman

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.
