The Nautical Research Journal
Advancing Ship Modeling Through Research 

Published quarterly, the Nautical Research Journal contains feature articles on ship model building, merchant and naval shipbuilding, naval architecture, maritime trade, nautical history, and maritime arts. 

Each article is beautifully illustrated with archival and modern photographs, vessel plans, and technical drawings. Material is contributed by professional and dedicated amateur historians, museum curators, ship modelers, artists, and others.

Look for these sections in every issue:

  • Features that provide in-depth articles on model construction, research, and nautical history.
  • Shop notes provide practical innovative workshop and research techniques
  • Letters to the editor, an arena for members to ask questions and provide feedback
  • Vendor advertisements, a vital guide when making purchasing decisions

The Nautical Research Journal is available as part of your membership to the Nautical Research Guild.  The Journal is available in both printed and digital formats.
