  1. Hello Wayne, would recommend the book Anatomy of the Ship by Portia Takakjian as a quick reference. The book has data on Essex's mast/spar sizes as well as rigging layouts and associated details.
  2. Hello Jim, I took my usb drive to Gig Harbor Copy and Print on Judson St. (3110 Judson St. Gig Harbor, WA). Just print full size. They did a fantastic job. Also had them printout Chapter One on 32 pound paper, much easier to handle in the binder I put together for this build.
  3. Chuck, this is a fantastic series. Being a visual person, these videos really help simplify the planking process. Thanks again.
  4. Hello everyone, this will be my first scratch project. Will be taking my time on this. Ordered the plywood on Wednesday.
  5. Hello All, The start of my build log for Medway Longboat. Looking forward to the release of the kits.
  6. Hello Dave, hope you don’t mind if I pull up a chair and follow along. Thanks Bill
  7. I also ordered one this afternoon, Jim is going to be busy. Bill
  8. Hello Kenny, hope you don't mind if I pull up a chair and follow along. Bill
  9. Hello All, this is to document my build of the 1:48 scale H.M.S. Triton Cross Section model. The journey begins. Bill

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.
