  1. Giltwork across the top resembles Victory's .
  2. Well, Ive finally finished HMS Victory after two personal visits aboard at Portsmouth, reading Nelsons biography, and they have rediscovered her true colors, ( not the gaudy circus yellow but a much more genteel and civilized beige) . So, now, re-energized, and looking for my next project, Ive fittingly, as a retired Yankee sailor, decided to take on our own USS Constitution. I have also visited her in Boston, and am equally aware that her decor, colors and even the configuration of her rigging has gone through as many changes as she has had Captains. In those days it was their decision alone how each ship sailed, appeared and was fought (we had no Naval Bureau of Ships in those days) So my approach to building and fitting will be as one of her Captains, with an eye , of course to how she appears today, and what i have been able to gleen on my study of Naval Warfare and tactics of the past. .

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.
