  2. Hello members, finally feeling better so I figured I’d post a short update , I have received my book and found some some very useful info in it , I am glad I purchased this book it is packed full of historical drawings and old photos of the. Logoda , and it’s whale boats. I also started receiving some drawings on the vessel so I will begin figuring them out so I can start making saw dust this weekend. She is going to be a nice size model at aprox 23” long 30” tall and 7 “ wide. I hope to get started this weekend .Glad you looked in , Derek C

  7. Thanks alde , I'm excited to do this build . It brings back so many fond memories.
  8. Hello fellow MSW members After finishing my Cross section build I wasn't sure what my next project would be . While looking at different boats i started thinking back to when I was young .I was born in New Bedford Massachusetts,and as a kid I can remember visiting the Whaling Mueseum . https://www.whalingmuseum.org/ and they always had such great stuff on display and in the Bourne building was a massive display of the vessel "Lagoda" . As a kid I couldn't wait to get to the vessel to explore it .My grandmother lived maybe a mile away from the museum so we would go visit several times a year. I contacted a member from the museum and she was very helpful in sending me the information on the Lagoda,and how to purchase the plans for the vessel. So without hesitation i called and purchased them as they only had the one set left . Now I will impatiently wait for them to arrive. Here is a link to the " Lagoda "if you would like to check her out . https://www.whalingmuseum.org/explore/exhibitions/current/lagoda Thanks for checking in on my new adventure. Derek C.

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.
