  1. Hey everyone, I was in Budapest a few weeks ago, and in a small antique shop I found this beaten-up model ship that looks like an old one, as well as beautiful. I was trying to do some digging since then but I haven't come close to identifying even the type of the boat, let alone the possible origin or a blueprint I can consider when trying to repair it. Please be so kind and help me identifying this model so I can find out more about it! Here are some shots (sorry for the noisy background). The back side of the ship is clearly missing a bigger piece on the deck, but other than that and a few smaller pieces everything seems to be there. Here're more detailed shots of the flags that are on the body of the ship: Thank you for your help! Looking forward to learning more about this beauty.
  2. Hey everyone! I'm totally new to the forum as well as the real world of model ships. :) I grew up sailing and was always drawn to sailing-related things. So the other day I went into this small antique store in Budapest (Hungary) and found a totally wrecked model ship, and went home with it. It's beautiful but needs a lot of reparations. I did some digging on what model it could be but so far found no pointers, and that's why I'm here. Is there a place I could post pictures of my boat where you, experts could take a look? Would it be here? So far I haven't found a better topic to ask for help in identifying the ship. Thanks for your help!

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.
