  1. I started building this 32 gun frigate in about 1996 after being inspired by Charles De Clinton, totally scratch built from Welsh and Swiss pear, I have tried my best to build it as they would of in the day joint for joint each, frame made up of several parts, stepped scarph's on the the keel, Mr De Clinton asked to see the keel when it was completed but told me not to glue it, well I took it to him in pieces, he asked me to assemble it and to my horror he picked it up by the stem end, it held together as one, to receive praise from him was something that encouraged me a great deal. It is still not finished I only work on it when in the right frame of mind, the Coronavirus has given me plenty of time to continue, I have just completed making the stern gallery window frames from boxwood, took about an hour to make each frame, 7 in all with 6 panes in each. Will try to post some pictures in the near future

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.
