  1. Hello everyone. I am starting a new project. This is a 1/48 scale scratch built model of a Biloxi lugger named Captain Roy, built in 1948 by local builder Jules Galle'. This was one of two identical luggers he built that year for Roy Rosalis, owner of Biloxi Canning Co. The other boat was named Boston Bill. I have used tonnage admeasurement data and photographs to reconstruct the lines and details for this model. Here are two photographs; one is a rather poor copy, and a bow view. I also include the outboard view from my plans so you can see the finished model's appearance, and her original certificate of admeasurement showing her dimensions etc. Russ
  2. Hello everybody, My Dad was a shrimper from South Carolina all his life. I grew up shrimping, along with my brother and sisters. My brother and I worked as deckhands since childhood. I started going very young,I made my first ocean voyage at age 4 and have been working boats ever since.We grew up in a small town McClellanville,SC and I still live right outside of there. My Dad had this boat built in 1978 at Desco Marine, St. Augustine Fla. I remember all of us going down and picking her up. My Dad was so proud of her, it was his life. It was a big step up from his old boat, I will never forget thinking we actullay have a fridge!! Thanks, no more luggin ice to the cooler every day. Many a day draggin and heading shrimp. I've headed more than I care to remember. We worked the boat all over the East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico,I went full time at 15 and got my first Captains License at 18 (100 ton Master Near Coastal) I am a true Hawsepiper (Unlimted Masters all Oceans)and have spent my life at sea. Right now I am the Captain of a small cargo ship MV Coastal Venture that I run all over. After finding this site(which I think is great) I decided to try and build her. I found plans on the internet and scaled them up to 1-24 scale. It's my first build and I have learned plenty, Its been fun so far and I am hoping for a decent model. This site can be very intimidating to someone new at building. There is such talent on here, the craftsmanship is unbelievable. Such talent, way beyond anything I could attempt. I was hesitant to start a build log but I am fascinated with the builds going on. There are so many Masters on here, Chuck,the Kingfisher, Dans build, and many more, way too many to name. I do want to thank them all for posting, as I have progressed and learned by their skill. So I do hope somebody will enjoy my little attempt at scratch building. I cut all the bulkheads out of 1/4 birch ply and the planking is Balsa. Plenty of new skills to learn but I am trying. I've been working on it off and on for a year. I finished fiberglassing the hull and I think it turned out ok. Now for the rigging and the cabin! The first picture is when my Dads boat was launched, the second on the rail at Fernandina Beach Fla., The third blessing of the Fleet and last but not least, Thats my Dad on the left, me at 16 I think and Capatin David Cook, after spending all day scraping and painting. Thanks captain Scott White

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.
