  1. Just reviewed this build. I'm thinking of building the Mamoli "Alert" scale 1/45 does anyone have any comments, please advise.
  2. Is there anyone that has information on the deck planking and tree nailing the three levels of this model ?
  3. Peter, I am interested in building a full sail model of the Fair American. I found plans by an Italian model maker "Edizioni Navimodellistiche of Brigantino anno 1780 "Fair American" which shows a lot of detail on the rigging. I would like to finf more information on this model, can anyone help. I would also find information on the sails carried by the Fair American brig. Thank you, Jurgis
  4. To All, Thank you for your comments they are very helpfull and I'm leaning towards the Fair American. I need to do some further research. I still have not found much information on FM under full sail which is the way i really would like to build it. Again Thanx Jurgis
  5. Just found this log. I am investigating which to build "Fair American" or "Syren". To help me decide, I would appreciate all input. Just one question for now about the Fair American. 1. Is there a model built showing all the sails since the reason for the original model was built to study the amount of sail. Thanx

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.
