  1. U.S.S. Arizona

    No sweat, Denis; I'm in the same boat with respect to available time. If you delve into USN camo, you need 2 different mixes. One more grayish (early war), some more purplish (late war).

    Might look into reloading. We do, although powder is getting higher.

    Whot's the silly two-legs doin' now? 'E's off 'is rocker, ploppin' me on 'is workbench! Blimey, mate!

    Ditto on the handsome pup. The "rat" he's sitting next to, not so much. Good luck tomorrow with the game.
  5. U.S.S. Arizona

    Denis, the US ships began to be painted in camouflage schemes before Pearl Harbor. The pictures around the day of the attack show most of the battleships in MS-1, which is all dark except for the upper levels of the masts and spotting tops in a lighter gray. The NRJ article can be an excellent resource for that. And this is an extensive thread (99 pages) for Arizona on the Ship Model Forum of the ModelWarships.com site: http://www.shipmodels.info/mws_forum/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=12942

    Joshua, here's another place to tempt your tool cravings: http://www.umm-usa.com/
  7. U.S.S. Arizona

    Dennis, most folks think Arizona was in this camouflage measure: http://www.shipcamouflage.com/measure_1.htm Here's the color palette for you: http://www.shipcamouflage.com/ships2_1_41_plate_1.htm#Plate 1: Camouflage Colors
  8. Them Old Jokes

    Amen, Jack!
  9. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Had a jet noise album, mostly done on an aircraft carrier. Can't play it anymore. Spent so many years around jets, I have a humongous high end hearing deficit.
  10. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    A lot of albums were played once or twice and stored. I put all of mine on reel to reel tapes. Suspect my old vinyl is warped.
  11. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Nice stuff, Julie. Listened to them for years.
  12. Jack, there were some chilly caves around Rosendale, NY, where they raised mushrooms, once upon a time. I think they were west of the old railroad trestle crossing the valley along 213.
  13. Wow, nicely done in your garden. Love the live steamer! Charley seems to like it, too. Be careful around those large power tools. Hope it was only lacerations; our knees are getting worn out doing our regular stuff. Dinging it with that saw could make shakey knees worse.
  14. Azzoun, you may want to test your LED hookup outside the lighthouse before you close it in. I think you might need a dropping resistor.
  15. What have you received today?

    And he's so different how?

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.
