  1. My father, Mike Mjelde, enjoyed looking at your rendition of The Glory, please don’t hesitate in contacting him. He is currently working on another project involving her!

      OH MY goodness   Michael Jay Mjelde?   I have enjoyed his books on the subject for years and have used them extensively during the planning stages of My Gloy's build.  I am well pleased he found my rendition enjoyable.

      I was able to recover artifacts from her resting p[lace to add to my exhibit of her....which make the display of her even more attractive.  The Glory of the Seas was, as you know, Donald McKay's last Medium clipper...and he is my favorite builder and to have acquired artifacts of her for my display, is a great honor.


      How do I contact Mike...the pleasure is all mine for sure?

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.
