  1. Favorite old timer quotes

    He's a few fries short of a Happy Meal.
  2. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Omega, my sincere condolences.
  3. What have you received today?

    Nice looking guns there, Mark.
  4. What have you received today?

    I was walking without assistance (walker, crutches or cane) in about 3 weeks. Not much pain, either. Took a while to get the strength back, but not too long - 4-5 months. Climbing stairs took the longest.
  5. What have you received today?

    Very nice. Hope you thanked him for the extra goodies!
  6. Ditto for me. You can still make out the planks and tree nails.
  7. What have you received today?

    I've seen similar activity in my 2 dogs, tearing around the house, barking at each other. I have to crate the youngster to get them quiet enough to go to bed. It's a zoo at times. And they will chew almost anything, like those big ropes and a hard rubber gizmo called a "Kong". It's a 3 lobed, kind of squashed set of rubber balls. Yhere is a hole from top to bottom, for inserting treats for training to retrieve. Bit the lobes completely apart. Now it's 3 red rubber doughnuts. Dogs.

    Ron, the bunker mods look great. Those ancient molds done by MDC back in the day had a lot of compromises. The newer slide molds allow for greater fidelity to the prototype. Are you going to upgrade the wheel-sets in those trucks?
  9. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Wayne, sorry for your loss. It's tough losing one of the family. Just remember all the fun you had with her. She'll be waiting for you on the other side.
  10. Heck, I'd like to give it a shot, but I'm just south of Asheville; about 4 hours or so to Lumberton. Raleigh is about the same. A tad too far for a day trip for me.
  11. What have you received today?

    You'll like Six Frigates. Good read.
  12. Miracles do occur

    Best wishes on your recovery. Glad it's fixed.
  13. CA adhesive, which one do you use?

    Mark is right. Roughing up the spots where you apply the CA helps a lot. Wood can be problematic for CA, especially when applying on end grain. Tends to wick into the wood. Apply a first coat and let dry. This seals the wood for the CA. Then glue your parts together with a second drop of CA. I'm not a fan of CA glue for wood to wood applications; carpenter's yellow glue set up fast enough for me. CA is great for dissimilar materials gluing, like Britannia metal to wood. I'd still rough up the smooth surface and seal the wood, though. But, that's just me.
  14. What have you received today?

    Cute little pup. How big does he get?
  15. Deadliest Catch ??

    One of the paper modeler website has a model of the Cornelia Marie. http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/vbdownloads.php?params[content]=Cornelia+marie&params[title]=0&params[title]=on&params[description]=0&params[description]=on&params[author]=0&params[author]=on&params[categoryid]=0&do=search&action=searchresults

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.
