Thanks for your replies. I'm looking forward to following this. I may even take a weekend and go and look as the build progresses. I'll post the piccys if I do. I visited the Golden Hinde replica in London recently. I was amazed at how small it was. I'll post some piccys when I work out how to reduce their memory size.


Best wishes to all in the New Year

There was a replica built in the UK which sailed to America in 1957 as a goodwill gesture, paid for entirely by British donations - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayflower_II and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvqVXgdqooI .


She was met by HMS Sheffield in mid-Atlantic: Sheffield "You are beautiful". Mayflower "I bet you say that to all the girls!"


 She's still seaworthy and is berthed in the Plimouth Plantation heritage village in Massachusets. 


I used to have the book by Warwick Charlton, but it got lost in one of my many house moves. Shame - it was a good read.

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.
