Naval War of 1812 Illustrated now complete and viewable


Recommended Posts

As many of you may be aware, the Bicentenial of the War of 1812 is currently taking place. As part of this event, The American Society of Marine Artists has produced a video of the conflict which includes models of ships - some built by NRG and MSW members. 

 

The website http://naval-war-of-1812-illustrated.org is devoted to chronicaling the War of 1812 from the maritime aspects of Canada, Great Britian, and the United States.

 

The video is broken into various segements that highlight specific theaters of the war which makes viewing it a more interesting and useful experience.

 

I would like to thank Charles R. Robinson, Exec. Producer and Director for his request that ship modelers from various places participate in this production. 50 individual modelers/artists have helped out with this production.

 

Clicking on the provided link will take you to the Introduction Page of the video. I have also attached their .pdf file with further information regarding the video as well as an art exhibit relating to this important topic.
