  1. Looking for something new to build, but don't know where to start looking? Relax -- we got this for you! Below is a list of manufacturers of wooden model boat/ship kits. Clicking a name will take you to the manufacturer's web site, where you can browse what each is currently offering. This list is current as of 22 July 2018 and will be periodically updated. Don't see your favorite kit maker listed here? Send a PM to one of the mods, and we'll check it out. Don't see your favorite Chinese manufacturer listed here? Then you probably haven't read this post (but please take the time to do so). If you don't see a short description, that means that the manufacturer is one of the better-known companies whose offerings cover a wide range of building methods, skill levels, vessel types, or all of the above. Enjoy! A J Fisher (USA) -- solid-hull kits of early American sailing craft Amati/Victory Models (Italy) Artesania Latina (Spain) -- reportedly out of business as of 2019 Billing Boats (Denmark) -- extensive RC line in addition to static kits Bluejacket Shipcrafters (USA) Caldercraft (UK) -- produces the popular Nelson's Navy line of kits CCV (Italy) -- classic Mediterranean work boats Chesapeake Light Craft (USA) -- offers several models based on their full-size boat kits Corel (Italy) Constructo (Spain) De Agostini (USA) -- serial parts work kits Disarmodel (Spain) -- a variety of ship models, other model subjects, and fittings Dumas (USA) -- known primarily for their RC offerings Dusek (Czech Republic) Euromodel (Italy) GK Modellbau (Germany) -- small craft models based on the Kammerlander planking technique Graupner (Germany) -- known primarily for their RC offerings Kolderstok (Holland) -- Dutch vessels from the Golden Age of sail Hachette-Fascicoli (Italy) -- serial parts work kits Mantua/Panart/Sergal (Italy) Mamoli (see Dusek) MarisStella (Croatia) -- many Adriatic Sea sailing work boats Master Korabel (Russia) -- Russian period vessels Model Shipways (USA) -- including the designs from Syren Ship Model Company Modellers Shipyard (Australia) -- models of Australia's First Fleet vessels Navarino Models (Greece) -- ancient and traditional Greek warships and work boats OcCre (Spain) Ship Model Okumoto (Japan) -- fully framed models Soclaine (France) -- French sailing warships and work boats Syren Model Ship Company (USA) -- Only two kits as of yet, designed for the experienced modeller. Turk Model (Turkey) -- Turkish vessels Vanguard Models (UK) -- warships of the Royal Navy, designed by Chris Watton Woody Joe (Japan) -- traditional Japanese work boats in addition to period sailing vessels Wye River Models (USA) -- Chesapeake Bay work boats
  2. Hello, I am considering HMS Victory for my next project. I've decided that before I begin the Victory, I'd like some input from others who've done one. I would appreciate your input and frank appraisal of your kit, the manufacturer, and whether you would use them again if starting over. If not, then which? I would use a kit as a basis but would likely engage in some bashing to enhance authenticity. I would also likely use a good reference like Longridge or one of the many others. Ideas on resources are greedily accepted. Input on wood quality; fitting (wood and metal) quality; plans quality (completeness, readability, accuracy); instruction (readability and accuracy of descriptions, quality of illustrations); accuracy of description of masting and rigging; etc. Any input that you would like to share would be most gratefully acknowledged. Many thanks, Chris Miller

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.
