  1. Nicely done Dave! Looks real in your first shot. Cheers,
  2. Nice work Lawrence. Very true that making believable period door hinges at that scale is a real challenge. However, these wont be that visible to be much of a concern. Cheers,
  3. Marvelous work Doris! Doris the dolphin tamer in real dolphins and clay. Cheers,
  4. Yes, I too look forward to your tutorial. That's a great idea and now I am planning to create mounting rests for my VOC ship "Surabaya" with crocodiles and sharks. Why? Because the name Surabaya is a combination of the Sura = crocodile and buaya + shark in the Indonesian language. Thanks for the idea. Cheers,
  5. Wow, you have been busy Greg and rigging looks marvy. Cheers,
  6. Yes, I have been following the weather in your part of the world, not good. Wish you a speedy recovery. Cheers,
  7. Beautiful! A work of art Pawel. Cheers,
  8. Don't even think that didn't cross my mind 😉 I was already picking out a few stout branches this morning. Cheers,
  9. Marvelous work Patrick and you and your family have a great and healthy 2019. Cheers,
  10. Beautiful work Doris, as expected. Cheers,
  11. You are welcome Carl and yes, I'm planning on coming back as soon as my yard is cleaned up before spring. I'm thinking of cutting down Gwen's maple tree before then. Never a dull moment. Cheers,
  12. Nice work Jan. Cheers,

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.
