  1. I recently acquired a partially built HMS VICTORY Wood Model Kit by Mamoli HMS Victory but the instruction / owner book is missing and I wanted to know if there is anyway I can get a copy of this so I can complete the model. So if members have copies they could email me or point me in the direction where I could get them, that would be much appreciated.
  2. hello im new at this wonderful hobby, i purchased my dos amigos occre kit a couple of years ago but until now i didnt have time, i started and im advancing pretty fast but i just realized i lost the plans and instructions for masts and sails and im just not smart enough to deduce everything by the booklet. I contacted occre but they havent responded i was wondering is someone could send me pics of the plans and instructions. I will post pics here of my ship once i figure this out. thanks in advance
  3. My father built this ship years ago. In transit from one home to another a few pieces fell off. I am looking for instructions for this model. I would appreciate any help. I am also looking for someone near Minneapolis, MN who I can hire to repair the HMS Rattlesnake. Any help would be appreciated. Barbi9
  4. Hello everyone! I have come here today to present what I can confidently say is a difficult request to fulfill, but I appreciate any pointers or advice. This is coming from a complete novice when it comes to wooden ship model building, and have little idea what the realm of possibilities is. I'm looking for the instructions of an old kit I have recently been given custody of (pictures below): Maquettes Gérard Schmitt (published by BMI apparently) Kof Hollandais (Dutch Koff) 1841 "Vlaardingen" Picture of the battered box: Picture of the contents as I found them, sadly lacking the instructions: A relative has recently come into possession of this kit, and after tinkering with it for a bit asked me (since I'm apparently the miniature specialist of the household) to see if I could build it for him. This box seems to have been housed in a garage somewhere for years before seeing the light of day again when said relative picked it up who-knows-where. The box seems to have been fixed with tape at some point, but the contents look fine, aside from the staples rusting. I have never even been near a kit like this (wooden, ship) before, but given my interest in other models/miniatures I decided to see if I could do something with it. Yes, I realised the moment I opened the box that this is probably not a good model for a first experience in this particular segment of the world of scale models. I also realise that the chance is very small someone will actually still have the instructions of this kit, this being an old box set from an obscure French manufacturer that seems to have existed only for a short time. I have done the usual internet searches for manufacturer, publisher, and ship type, but it seems MGS just didn't leave much of an internet trail outside sale and bidding sites. I think I might be able to reverse-engineer a building method using the instructions of other kits I've found scans of and the helpful instructions on this forum and else-where, but the original instructions would doubtlessly be of much use. Can anyone help me? Aside from actual scans of the original instructions, I would also be very grateful for any pointers on where to look next. I also apologise for any untowardness in this, my first post on your forum without proper introductions. Mae Culpa.
  5. Hi, all! I just recently finished my first model ship, a plastic Lindberg Jolly Roger (log is on here). I'm moving onto wood kits. I started working on a Sultana I got for super cheap, but I find that the solid hull just doesn't work with me. It's not how I think, I guess. I don't mind the sanding and the work, but POB just makes more sense to me. So, I'd like to buy a nice POB kit and put that together (doing much more homework and work in general, I'm sure...but I'm ok with that). Since I am new, I would like to get a POB kit with the best instructions available. Which brings me to my question: In your opinion(s), what kit (from which mfg) has the best instructions? I glanced some of the instructions for MSW's kits which I believe are known to be pretty good, and I found some pretty considerable variances from kit to kit. The brig Syren's instructions looked really nice, and very comprehensive- more so than the Rattlesnake I had started looking at. But is this so? And what kit (from any mfg) would be better/ easier to follow? I've got a couple of good books on it (Ship Modeling from Stem to Stern and a couple of books on rigging). Maybe I should just jump in and get whatever I like best? Thanks in advance for any opinions/ references
  6. i brought the model ship bluenoue ll. box was open,got discount on price.when opened found out the plans and instructions were a copy of a copy of a copy. means you can read anything on the sheets.would like to know if any body can help me find some plans and instruction for this model.thank you for your help kevin wood email addy removed to prevent spam.
  7. Many of our instructions reads: "after placing the first two or three hull planking under the deck, find the most natural way for the "main" strake. With my current project X, I have found not one but four natural lines for the planking strips to follow without twisting and bending. Should I follow them and add in the missing and twisted? I have divided the hull into three sections, and just following the hull line seems more natural to me. Again, just my two cents

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.
