  1. This is the first time that I've seen an recent model ship book mention the "Lift Method." Is this the best source for diving into this method of scratchbuilding?
  2. This is a beautiful build! Tell me, what exactly is the difference between a Yawl and other ship's boats? How can one determine the era or providence of small boats?
  3. Hey Everyone! Like a bunch of people here, I'm starting this hobby to keep myself occupied during Covid-19, but I've been interested model ship building it since I was a kid and my grandmother bought me a half finished Phantom pilot boat at a garage sale I'm currently in New Haven, CT, USA finishing up graduate school in Forestry. I hope to get involved in the modeling community on the Connecticut shore once we can start to safely gather. I'm almost done with my first model, the Lady Nelson, and will be starting on Chuck's practicum to kitbash the HMS Sultana with Alaska Yellow Cedar.

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.
