  1. I recently obtained this large Agamemnon from a friend, and was wondering if any of you can identify if it was made from a kit? To me it looks a little like the Caldercraft kit but with full sails. Most of the parts are wood. The plastic parts include the cannons, the red enclosures around them, and the ornamentation above the windows in the back. I would like to replace the cannons if possible with some that are higher quality than the shiny plastic ones, perhaps made of brass or black metal. Are there any model ship parts suppliers you can recommend? That’s a lot of cannons to replace ! Thank you for any help you can give me. Steve
  2. Scratchbuilding USS Saratoga CV-3, 1944 in 1/350 scale. This model will depict Saratoga late war with asymmetrical hull, cut-down funnel, and heavy AA fit. It is NOT being converted from the Trumpeter kit. Jim Russell did convert the Trumpeter kit into a 1944 Saratoga beautifully. You can see his conversion here: http://www.shipmodels.info/mws_forum/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=39515&start=0 Actual ship length overall: 910' - 1-3/4" Model Length: 31.205 inches (79.26 cm). Material: Evergreen polystyrene sheet, strips, tubing, rods, H-sections, etc. Hull construction method: double plank on frame Plans and References: 1. US Navy Booklet of General Plans dated 1942 (implemented following Kamikaze damage sustained on February 21, 1945), available from Floating Drydock 2. US Navy Booklet of General Plans dated April 23, 1936 (implemented during a refit in December, 1943, plans updated Aug., 1944 to include cross sections - vitally important for this build). 3. US Navy Booklet of General Plans for USS Lexington CV-2, dated 1936, for comparison 4. detail photos and comments posted by Tracy White (invaluable) 5. photos from USS Saratoga Squadron at Sea by David Doyle (Tracy contributed much to that effort). 6. hull sections for USS Lexington CV-2, drawn by Thomas Walkowiak, available from Floating Drydock. Technique inspiration: Paul Budzik's masterful scratch-built USS Enterprise CV-6 http://paulbudzik.com/current-projects/Enterprise%20Scratch/Enterprise_Scratch.html Finish inspiration: Martin Quinn’s exquisite prewar USS Lexington CV-2: http://www.modelshipgallery.com/gallery/cv/cv-02/350-mq/mq-index.html Your advice, constructive criticism and comments are most welcome and appreciated.
  3. This period of time was pivotable in the history of aviation in the last century.It has always been of great interest to me, the era from the end of WW1 to the beginnings of air regulations in 1929, a time when anything was possible before the government stepped in. I just noticed that a few of the following pics are out of focus, forgot to use my glasses when reviewing them. This is my diorama that is now on permanent display in the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa Canada.It was valued by Shep Paine the best known of the modern day diorama makers at twenty-five thousand dollars(US).
  4. This log will describe the design and construction of a deep draught wooden hulled steam yacht of sixty seven feet over all length that I am currently drawing up on an A1 size drawing board using Copenhagen ship's and French curves. It is a first project, being both a first venture in card and the first model I will have designed for myself. It is also the first model of any kind that I've built in more than forty years. I will build the boat with scrap card, since I currently have no income of any kind. Unfortunately the software for my digital compact camera is on my PC and that is currently dead, with some sort of hard drive problem, and although I hope to reactivate it, with a Linux distro, and buy another windows machine in the not too distant future, there are unlikely to be any photographs of the construction process for a while. I started the drawings in late November of last year and thought that I was ready to begin the tracings in December. Progress was delayed until early February of this year, due solely to my dire financial circumstances, and then, having completed one half bulhead tracing, I realised that I had to give a little more thought to the actual structure of the hull. At present I do a lot of thinking and little actual drafting, however, this means that I am now quite clear on how to put the pieces together. Expect progress to be slow.

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.
