  1. Wonder what this is?

    Looks like you are correct, he made at least 2. Either he's got the patience of a saint or one hell of a 3D printer.
  2. Wonder what this is?

    Thanks for finding this, sculpture definitely explains how it was made. https://beautifulbizarre.net/2015/11/11/shallow-grave-studios-the-assemblage-tattoo-art-of-jason-stieva/ Found this pic that gives a better idea of the size...unless he made 2?
  3. Wonder what this is?

    On a second look, is it just a trick of the picture angle or is this a really large ship? Note the power outlet at the lower left corner and apparent proximity to the crown molding.
  4. Picture of a "handmade" model found on Reddit, wonder where this came from and how it was built?
  5. Amati Viking ship wood

    Friend of mind just started building this from scratch using plans purchased in Italy.
  6. sssshhhh... you aren't supposed to mention the Canuck secret weapon!
  7. Just received a pair of Carson Pro, $34 cdn., (on a recommendation from vossiewulf see link below), because having something I could use over my glasses appealed to me. Have not used them for ship work yet but they are comfortable from just trying them out.
  8. Wow! almost 29,000 members...

    make that 2
  9. "These spiders mature in late spring, and reproduce in mid-summer. One (dark fishing spider) sac was reported as containing 1393 eggs (Kaston 1948). Eventually the spider suspends her egg sac in a tangled “nursery web” amid foliage well off the ground. There she stands guard over the package and the spiderlings that later emerge from it." It's only a matter of time until your hear the sound of 11,000+ baby spider feet pattering about! You won't find the father, he gets eaten after he's done his duty.

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.
