  1. Is that Mutt and Jeff ? Or Moe and Curly ?
  2. Yea, I just got the same warning message myself a few minutes ago
  3. Beautiful model. Congratulation on your awards.
  4. Guess I will pull up a stool also Denis.
  5. And it tastes very very very good better than popcorn even.
  6. I'm here too. Brought the Corgi (dog) along; she'll bark loudly if anyone tries to raid the popcorn machine.

    A $14,000 model kit

    Crap it costs that much, and significantly more, just to go to a NON-PUBLIC High School these days.
  8. Ok, Mark, Kevin, Carl, Ken, slide over so I can join too.
  9. Sounds like a good compromise, Robert. Yes, information on the lightships is hard to come by, especially the early years. When I was restoring our local lighthouse, I did a lot of research and found there's a lot of information on the lighthouses themselves but not much on the lightships. Another good organization, in addition to the USCG Historian's Office, that might have some useful historic information is the United States Lighthouse Society formerly in San Francisco now in Washington State. They have a section on their website which contains a list of downloadable books on lighthouses Your model is looking good BTW !
  10. I guess the little mouse up in the last row of the bleachers should chime in too and say nice job on the colour Carl. I like the camo effect.
  11. Robert, you could make them a fixed white light, as some early lighthouses were configured that way before the advent of "occulting devices" which were used to "hide" the light for a period of time making it appear to flash (in the days before electric lights). I haven't been able to find a reference that lists the patterns for Lightships - plenty of references for stationary lighthouse tho.

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.
