  1. Its that time again. 36th Annual Northeast Clubs Conference for 2018 It will once again be held at the Port N Starboard Convention Center at Ocean Beach Park in New London, Connecticut on April 28th 2018 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. This year the Ship Model Society of New Jersey will be hosting the event. Early registration before March 15th 2017 is $35 per person, before April 22nd 2017 $40 per person and $45 per person after April 22nd or at the door of the event. As before, if you would like to exhibit a model, you’ll need to register for the Conference. Set-up for the exhibit area will start at 8:15 AM. Registration includes breakfast, buffet lunch and dessert! Previous members of MSW who attended are shown below!!! There will be a luncheon speaker and I will let you know about those details really soon!! There will be demonstrations of modeling techniques and procedures. Enjoy over 100 museum quality ship models. Vote for the best! There is the annual Peoples choice award. Where everyone gets to vote for their favorite model. Be sure to enter your model. In addition there is the Jim Roberts craftsman award. A group of judges, one from each club, will be awarding the top model based on certain criteria. Its very different than the Peoples choice which is not based on any criteria and is more fun and casual. But the Jim Roberts award is judged based on criteria that exemplifies craftsmanship and accuracy. Jim Roberts award judging criteria and entry requirements are also attached. Everyone should enter their models in both. They are both a lot of fun. Schmooze with the craftsmen, artists, and friends, old and new. Browse vendor booths with maritime and modeling books, kits, and tools. Watch demonstrations of building techniques and tips. Attached is a PDF file for the registration. Again watch this space for more info and hope to see you all there! I had a vision that Ryland might even bring a completed long boat to display 2108 Joint Clubs Registration Form.pdf Jim Roberts Award Entry Requirements.pdf Jim Roberts Award Judging Criteria.pdf

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.
