  1. Very nice work on the bulwark planking and painting. Bob
  2. Thomas, you are the gold standard for Syren builds. Bob
  3. Thanks so much Martin. If mindless clutter equals "within easy reach", then I'm good to go. 😀
  4. Thanks so much Thomas and the "likes". There's nothing that I enjoy more than making items like that. Bob
  5. I look forward to following this Kurt. It was one of my first builds in the 60's and I still have fond memories of it, although the completed model is long out of my possession, and I probably would be appalled by the crudity of my work then if I were to see it now. Bob
  6. Thanks so much Jim, OC and Jim for the kind comments, and thanks also for the "likes". Always appreciated. Bob
  7. I have now built and installed the rear cabin with it's companionway and skylight. This completes the deck items. The cabin was built up from boxwood strips, with some interior bracing to support the walls and roof. The skylight glazing is clear styrene sheet. The door handles are blackened pin heads. The next thing to be done will be the lower deadeyes and chainplates. Bob
  8. Thanks so much Denis and the "likes". Bob
  9. Thanks so much Thomas, Jason and the "likes". Jason, I'm just glad that I didn't have to do anything as complex as your beautiful headwork on Jason. Bob
  10. Beautiful work B.E. All those treenails bring back wonderful memories.😊 Bob
  11. Thanks so much Don, Dave, Steve, OC and the "likes". Appreciated, as always. Bob
  12. Great to see you back at it Don. Looks absolutely wonderful. Bob
  13. An interesting and very well done piece of work Don. Bob
  14. Well, I've been up north for the past couple of weeks having a medical procedure, but now it's back to work on PdN. I've done the head work , which is somewhat simpler than on others that I've done. That's not to say that it is ever easy to fit the cheeks and rails, but at least there was no middle rail or eking rail to fit. Once again, the plans and instructions are very vague on details, so I just fumbled along. All of the parts were made from boxwood sheet and strip. Bob

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.
