  7. Greetings Ab. I have read your documents carefully and I must say that you are doing a very good job. All forums discuss the quality of plans. Especially whether to build only according to them as the rules of competitions state or to modify the model according to the rules of history. I'm building a Dutch ship according to a book Risse von Schiffen des 16./17. Jahrhunderts and I myself have found discrepancies in the plan and I'm trying to improve them. Unfortunately, the shape of the hull is elementary and can't be adjusted. Thank you very much for your messages and contributions, I'm looking forward to reading more. Ondra

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.
