  1. Lady Washington Brig pulled out

    I worked in the Grays Harbor area when they were building her and would often stop by and see her coming together.
  2. Musicians and Modelers

    Dr. Per I do not play any instruments but I make a few from left over modeling wood. These are earrings.
  3. Kurt, I believe that the flaired collar was like a rain cap to shed rain water off. Under the collar had open holes/slots for venting heat from the engine room. The wood cabin top needed clearance from the stack. The stack would get very hot with the boiler going.
  4. Kurt, Like John said it's a curved bench seat. Here is what is shown of the stack.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
