    Hello from Maryland

    Welcome Reed. I grew up in Baltimore and love the bay as well as the Eastern shore. I’ve always love the Skipjacks. If you want some more inspiration you can always just get up on 50 and head on to the Naval Academy to see the Rodgers collection there. It really is impressive

    Your favorite saying

    We use this one in the Trauma center ”all bleeding stops eventually.... one way or another...”
  7. Wonderfully clean. The crutches and knees look great
  8. Looking real nice. Fairing those thin frames looks like it may be a bit tricky. Like to see how everyone seals with the issue
  9. Dave, I am glad to see you start on this. Will be interesting.
  10. Merry Christmas Waiting to open some presents....
  11. Paint looks really nice and I like that slightly darker color. Was wondering what type of paint that is?

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.
