    Thanks Darrell! I was not able to make the meeting today due to timing and weather, but I plan on being at the April meet.

    Thanks for the invite Lee. I'm only 30 minutes from the library. Does the club meet in one of the conference rooms there?

    My name is Sean. I'll be adding it to my signature block along with my current build soon.
  5. Hello from Central Ohio

    Hi all! I've been meaning to post here for some time. I've been registered for almost 4 years, better late than never I've been following this site for some time, reading over build logs, and trying out cheap MidWest kits before I posted an actual build. I currently build a lot of plastic amour and ship kits, and I am active with our local IPMS chapter. I used to build furniture a long time ago, but after selling our home a few years ago, I had no where to keep the tools and work. I did manage to take over our den and the wife has been completely supporting my hobby. I am a systems administrator for a local school district. Building models helps me relax and keeps me off a computer most evenings. I will be posting a build log of my current project shortly.

    Their certificate has expired. Looks like it ended on 9/23/17, they just need to renew it. It should still be safe to visit.

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.
