  1. Thanks! Look forward to seeing your build.
  2. First boat that I have built since my house fire that destroyed my models. I built this in a little over a month and took some liberties in the final build to make the boat look a little unique. I mounted the boat on a slant to make it appear to be sailing with the main only and the headsails still lashed down.
  3. Thank you all! Everyone and pets (dogs) escaped unharmed. Our cat was rescued by firemen and has recovered as well. This does give me an opportunity to correct the wrongs I made building those kits.
  4. First time ever joining a group. So hello good to be here. I’m a from Maryland. I joined since very recently my ships were all destroyed in a house fire that has also destroyed my house. I will be out a year so was looking to start rebuilding to have something to do in my rental place and to replace the woodworking I was doing. I lost my America (solid hull), Swift, Chesapeake Skipjack and Baltimore clipper Roger Taney that was ready for spars and rigging. I joined to get more tips and techniques for building kits for now.

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.
