  1. In 1975 I started building the Model Shipways Flying Fish (solid wood hull) When I was at the point of rigging the shrouds, the cat tore up the forestays tree tops and masts. Discouraged the model went into the attic. About 8 months ago. I was cleaning the attic and decided to restart the project. Heavy dust was removed and all the broken pieces were fixed or replaced. Now I’m rigging the yard braces and spencer gaffs. Not bad for a 40+ year project.
  2. Although a scale model would sell well, to my knowledge, there isn’t a scale model of the Mary Celeste. The reason is the original plans of the ship have long been lost which makes a detailed model impossible. I believe the model “Marie Celeste” is only a guess of what she looks like based on pictures and general specifications.

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.
