  1. Hi, I am back again but this time I have taken on a nice challenge. My brother purchased me this wonderful kit for my birthday (which is tomorrow, October 3rd) because of something that happenned 42 years ago! I had built an airfix (plastic) model of the ship back when I was 15. My twin was a little jealous (I guess?) and once it was complete he smashed it. It is something that he has regretted all these years. So, for my 57th birthday he redeemed himself in the best possible way. The kit arrived from Australia this morning. I am very excited!
  2. Hello Finally after looking at the box for almost ten years I have started on my Caldercraft HMS Victory. A lot of other projects has gotten in my way during the years and this will be a parralell build to my HMS Kingfisher build. Dunting task one might say but I could not help my self there are so many inspiring logs around here I had recently started my Corel HMS Victory all those years ago and during some research on the web for that build I came across some pictures of the CC HMS Victory beeing developed. Having realized that it was actually a kit and not a scratch build by someone, I had to have it !!! When I recieved my kit the first thing that struck me was the shere size of the thing. My daughter actually fitted inside the box Now that I have started the build she does not fit the box anymore Erik
  3. As a small Easter surprise, a small project I am working on to try out some things, just to see ... Small flash back: From my first casting trials, i had left a piece of formed resin ... ... uand it was saying "Hy" to me all the time :-) First the standards: out the scaler and eliminating the "wood"-grains ... .... thinning the backsides ... ... redoing the ports (middle) ... ... nicely to be seen from the back.

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.
