    Long time model Railroader. I have always had a interest in tall ships. I have walked the decks of Cutty Sark, the Glen Lee (Glasco), I build the Cutty Sark 1-96 plastic kit in 1962-67 I found the hull and realized I wanted to build her in wood, so I am.
    I am retired, divorced, and quite happy.

  1. Thanks to all !!! I live in Virginia, USA, just outside of Washington DC. Making the deadeyes myself has crossed my mind, 30 years as a machinist has given me the skill set. So, I will most likely make the smaller ones myself. The more research I do, the more mistakes I find, most notable the way the sails are bent onto the yards! (Not using the jack stay) I will keep you all updated as I progress. I am really looking forward to the rigging! Mac
  2. Hello, first post. I am a model railroader gone over to sail! I am building the Latina 1-84 Cutty Sark and find that the rigging components in the kit are way oversized. I there a source for small deadeyes about 1.5 MM? I built a plastic 1-96 Revel Cutty Sark in the early 60's and still have the hull! Any Ideas where I can find scale deadeyes? Thanks a lot Clipper Fan

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.
