  1. Hey Guys I have been teaching myself Fusion 360, free if you are using it for a hobby. I program 3 axis mills at work, but have no 3D software at home. I have been using Autocad for about 12 years and Vectric Vcarve 2d and Aspire 3D modeling software for about 8 years or so. My first project with Fusion is Laurel Hill Barge #2, a colonial period rice/utility flat of chine Log construction. I have the chine log, keelsons and headers complete and now need to add frames, planking and strakes. Steven

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.
