  8. Hello Gan Do, and a warm welcome to MSW. I also had an ancestor come to Australia on the 'Scarborough', but he was a 'guest' of the Government! He was also on the 'Sirius' when she went onto the reef at Norfolk Island. John
  9. Hello Masa, and a warm welcome to the forum from 'Down Under'. Happy New Year! John
  10. One example of what can be done:- The American ship 'A.G. Ropes' left Hong Kong for Baltimore at the end of June 1905 bound for Baltimore, but limped back into Kobe, Japan on 22nd July after having been dismasted in a severe gale. Only a part of the foremast was left standing, on which the crew managed to rig sufficient sail to get her back into port. The photo below, from Greenhill and Stonham's book 'Seafaring Under Sail', shows the rig they managed to contrive. John
  11. I note that the package says, 'When precision matters' and also, 'Random sizes'. How precise are random sizes? John

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.
