  1. When searching for details about 18:th century naval guns i stumbled on this interesting online-book that is published on google books: Artillery: "An Illustrated History of Its Impact" Sorry if it already has been discussed here earlier, I couldn't find anything when I searched the forum anyway. Perhaps it is of value for someone?
  2. Many years ago I was very fond of building model kits. Mostly plastic models but also some RC planes and boats. My only experience from plank built boats was ”Hjejlen paddle steamer” - from Billing Boats, which I never finished due to (in my opinion) bad deck fittings etc. Since then my mind has been occupied by computer graphics and games so there is a 25 year gap until now. I guess my 50’years crisis made me rediscover this hobby 😉 so now I have ordered the Caldercraft ”Sherbourne” kit for starters. I hope I will finnish it, at least I am much better of now, when I can take part of the vast knowledge this forum offers. Best regards Mikael

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.
