  1. Hi mrmadalena I'm building the eagle right now. I'd create a log like you habe here but haven't figured out how yet. Anyway nice job! I want to use the red paint that you used but don't see it. Can you please tell me the brand and color. I see a lot of discussions about what people thought they used back then, orches,oxides, etc. But no one says what red paint they did use to pain there models.
  2. Hi all, I've been around ships all my life it seems but don't really know how to sail a sail boat!! I've been a crewman only. I was on a Baltimore Schooner, The Pilgrim of Newport for years with Dennis Holland. She was my girl. Also crewed on the Golden Hind out of England while she was on a world tour. Me and a fellow crew member were invitee to sail from San Pedro CA to San Francisco. Lots of fun sailing with a english crew.

  4. Hi rowboat captain, are you still working on this ship? I had the same problems but worked my way thru.

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.
