  1. Back building models after a 30 year hiatus. Kits have come a loooong way since the die cut balsa wood airplane models I used to build with my dad on Saturday mornings many moons ago. Bought my first ship kit (CSS Alabama - Mamoli) recently and promptly botched it so badly I scraped it and bought another (Syren Brig by Model Shipways). I have done much research and reading which led me to this site. I greatly enjoy following the ship building logs. This time around, I'm taking my time with the build. Ronko

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.
