  1. Thanks Allan. I am fitting my model of the Victory with 4 anchors I think of equal size and weight.....I think I will have to resort to fabricating them myself. Nick
  2. I am looking for plans ,including rigging plans, of the class of ships known as a Hermaphrodite Brig. Can anyone direct me to where i could find same
  3. What is the diameter of lower shroud deadeyes on 1/4 inch scale HMS Victory ?
  4. Do the lower sections of the "round houses" on the HMS Victory protrude outside the eking rail. It would seem that it would be necessary in order to get rid of waste....
  5. I am scratch building the HMS Victory1n 1:48 scale and I looking to buy the guns for the upper deck ,forecastle,and quarter deck in scale. But I can't seem to find them...Does anyone know where I can buy same ? Nick
  6. Are any of the "Administrators " of this site going to be at the New London Show on April 26th ? or any of our Admiral/ Master Builders ?
  7. How do you determine the "nibbs" dimensions and shape on a margin plank so that you can install the margin plank and then add the deck planking ? Nick
  8. I think Chuck Passero recommends gluing the pedestals to the keel viv a vis screwing...since screwing them to keel can split the keel Nick
  9. Thanks......I am embarrassed to say that the quote should have read "Fayed together" rather than "fated" together. Nick
  10. I am having trouble completely understanding the term "scantling". E.G. "In the way of the hawse holes, the scantling is increased so that they can be fated together". I don't know what that means. Can anyone help.

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.
