With your help, we stay on course.

Dear Friend of the Nautical Research Guild & Model Ship World,

Since the beginning of 2021, our shared passion for model ships and maritime subjects has brought serious ship modeling hobbyists together in previously unimaginable ways as we have tried to keep our unique pastime viable and vibrant for you, the members of the NRG and our Model Ship World forum.

The NRG’s directors – along with other volunteers – have been working harder than ever to connect with you as well as keep you informed and focused on the future of model ship building. It’s been a privilege t0 engage many of you in online activity and to see so many new visitors to the NRG and MSW web sites; our broad resources are now more accessible than ever before with a dramatically expanded and improved internet presence.    

In order to sustain and increase our ability to respond and to plan for the future, we need your help. Your support enables us to ensure we can continue to expand our oerings, a new scholarship program as well as more diverse modeling projects.


It’s for all these reasons that we ask for your help right now.

Please make a gift to Model Ship World for 2021 so we can do more to support this hobby that you and other members enjoy.   MSW is part of The NRG which  is a 501(c)(3) not- for-profit corporation. If you are a U.S. taxpayer, your donation is tax deductible; of course, all donations are appreciated no matter where in the world you live.

Thank You,


Can we count on your support?

Kurt, I made a donation today.  But beyond that, I want to say thank you to everyone who makes this site possible and keeps it up.  You do an amazing job of maintaining and moderating it, making it easy to navigate and a positive environment.  I'm just a person who likes to build models and this site has brought me fantastic instruction, new project ideas, and a community of wonderful people who like to build and share together.  I come to this site nearly every day, have my own build logs, and follow several other build logs.  It brings me great joy to have this in my life.  Thank you.
