  1. Hi While I was in Uk in Noughties I bought two antique pond yachts to restore one day... The Vintage Model Yacht Group published several booklets printed by Curved Air Press based on articles going back to 1920’s. Titles include: Jack’s Guide to Restoration of Older Model Yachts Your Model Yacht - how to sail it Tuning up a Model Yacht These are now available from Sailsetc but their website appears to be down. http://www.vmyg.org.uk/pages/resources/books/caplist 2003.htm Techniques and suppliers have obviously progressed or changed in last 100 years but some advice is as relevant today as then. From restoration manual p1 first line: “Some important Don’ts Don’t bring boats, tools, work in progress from workshop into kitchen without an express invitation.” Cheers
  2. Hi Helen I am renovating an Airfix Bountyband have lots of parts left over. If Raklein5 does not want I would be happy to take it off your hands and pay postage to Sydney, NSW. Thanks

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.
