  1. I have done the AL longboat and it is a rally good starting kit at a Great Price. The instructions are simple for a wood kit. It is about 35cm all up and make a nice introduction. Fro that the Caldercraft / Jokita William, Badger & Supply are grat kits in that order. Sample Plans & Instructions are on their site. Thre are a huge cut above the AL, but the price is higher.
  2. 1. The longridge book The Anatomy of Nelson's Ships.( scrath build victory ) 2. Anatomy of the ship HMS Victory 3. new periodship handbook. Keith Julier ( books is about building caldercraft victory) These are the best I have found. own all and thy are great. They are all available new or 2nd hand on Abe books Website.
  3. For the medium price point occre kits are really good. The non sip kits ( trains etc are great as well) Iv'e done the Xebec and the Stephesnsons rocokt and very happy with instructions. They alway have pleny of spare wood.
  4. I've built several AL & Occres, Occres plans & instructions are a bit better, wood is on par. Both have really average rigging data. The final builds of both companies look nice. Occres non ship kits ( Trams / Railkits are great/).

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.
