  1. Past hour
  2. It’s now a race to see if I’ll finish my model Providence first, or we finish rigging the actual ship first.
  3. Your new commitment doesn't seem to demanding ... your bottom looks promising
  4. Well done to get through your first build successfully. A great learning experience for you, I'm sure.
  5. Portuguese fishing vessel Sáo Ruy launches her Dory’s off Newfoundland in days long gone. Watercolour 15” X 11” Jim
  6. Rob. Thanks - I haven’t been active over the last week or two due to work however, I have ordered the alternative boxwood as you suggested and will get back on point once it arrives. Most grateful for your advice. Peter
  7. http://www.ship-model.com/ My second site was created quite recently and it is an exact copy of the first site.
  8. Hi Denis Just catching up again on your many projects. I'm constantly amazed at just how fast you can work and how easy you make everything look. I struggle to keep pace, but boy, oh boy, that gasser of yours sure looks nice! Well done! Cheers Patrick
  9. Today
  10. I have never used "the Cloud" for anything, never will either, Denis.
  11. Thanks, It was my lucky day. The square parts of the bars measure 3 mm, the space between 2 frames is 9 mm. And there could be 2 bar behind each other between the frames. So just enough room to place the 6 bars of the capstan.
  12. All you need is love- the Beatles
  13. Gidday popeye. Thankyou for the link. The more information from different sources the better. Wishing you all the best, Mark.
  14. The same dealer I mentioned earlier, a couple of posts back, has another SPAD for sale.
  15. Things are slowing down due to work and a new commitment. A bit done on the lower hull, the panel lines have been preshaded and a couple of shades of hull brown added. Tomorrow I’ll get some oilcanning done. Whilst it looks rough now it will all blend in.
  16. Hi folks. A quick update on Genesis’ voyage to completion. I’ve been thinking lately that Genesis‘ interior accommodation has been lacking a bit of greenery. Therefore, I added a few pot plants to her main saloon as well as her sky-deck. Oh...and just in case you were wondering, the plants are actually bits of our kitchen scouring pads which I tore off and glued in place. Mmmm, not bad, I reckon. I hope you enjoy Genesis’ new greenery. Cheers Patrick
  17. Congratulations on completing your Pinnance. You did a nice job on building this model. I have enjoyed following your build log.
  18. This actually reminded me that I built that as a kid in the early '70s. It was the first time I tried to do camouflage painting by hand, as I recall it came out awfully, but I learned a lot. I may go buy one just to see it again after all these years.
  19. Hi Pat You’re a lucky boy to get the furlough. Some guys get all the luck, hey? Have a great weekend. Cheers. Patrick
  20. Hi Frank That’s a marvellous job you’re doing on the dredges. They’re truly intricate models in their own right. Have a great weekend. Cheers Patrick

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.
