  1. Hello, I’m looking for a program where I can scan a plan and use it to design the frames and keel. I need it to be pretty simple. Not needing a 3D program. Free if possible 🙂
  2. Has anyone ever used a pantograph to enlarge or reduce ship model plans? If so was the pantograph custom made and the markings.
  3. I have to cut down a willow tree. Can the wood be used for anything in the ship model?
  4. I am resuming my build of the Mamoli Flying Cloud. I was looking at the plans and they do not show a rabbet or bearding line. I have already added the bulkheads to the frame. What would be the correct way to add these and where for the bearding line? Thanks
  5. Hello, What is a good replacement blade for a proxxon FET saw? Need one for fine cuts. Thanks
  6. Have completed the keel sections and am ready to proceed. Asking permission for the rest of the plans.

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.
