  1. The Scale is 1 : 57. Manfred has developed a special technique to give the sails a realistic swell. If I have the time, I will present the procedure in the forum.
  2. This model of HMS Victory was built by Manfred Burkert between 1972 and 2012. Some of the pics show the model at the fair in Friedrichshafen in 2018. He is currently in negotiations with the international maritime museum at hamburg regarding the purchase of the model. So one can hope that the model will soon be presented to a larger audience.
  3. Hello Doris, perhaps you can't hear any more compliments, but this is absolutely great! I saw your Victory and your Sovereign and now the Caroline und i must say that your skill becomes better and better! Good luck, Hartmut.

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.
