  1. I love this build and the color is very well done! Thanks for sharing!!!
  2. Wonderful work! I enjoyed seeing your technique very much. Fascinating!!!
  3. Hi Jo, 


    I am new (or should I say) re-immersing myself in MSW. From what I recall, a great place to learn. I have read some comments and know reading papers over and over (especially tech manuals and my coursework), helped me to learn how to calculate hydrostatic & stability analysis on yachts & boats of normal Length Over All (LOA), and reading even instruction manuals settler in to our memories that we do pick up on as time goers by. I am certain you have advanced to a large degree since you first joined beyond what I can say I am able to create in models. I am looking for a good foreign design to work with but the search continues or my 1st build. Thank you for sharing your time and expertise.

  12. Greetings All! I am returning to NRG and MSW from years back. I have missed my time spent conversing with experts in the model shipwright business, so I have returned for the excitement of beginning a new build. I am aspiring to build 2 vessels; first, one of my own designs (I am not a licensed NA or PE), but consider myself a designer upon studying years of boat and marine design. I am capable of drawing the Lines drawings, hydrostatic & stability analysis, scantlings, construction methods and materials, FRP design, and Interior design work. Second, I am considering a scratch build of a 20 - foot Catboat by designer Charles Wittholz, the Madam Terza. I sense since I have been out of the loupe for some time this would be an intermediate build. A challenge really. AS well, I built a full - size canoe/kayak combo with decks forward and astern and began from scratch a 20 - foot day sailor however never had the opportunity to complete. I am a former US Marine 1971-1972 who struggles at time with a spinal cord injury and PTSD. I shall not allow this to sabotage any more days and nights as it did for many years. Onward now to what I love…boats. I look forward to conversations and create some new friendships with like minded folks. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of walking with you all on this nautical journey. Feeling blessed.

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.
