    Them Old Jokes

    A shetland pony goes into a bar and whispers 'I'd like a bucket of water and some hay please'. The barman says, 'I'm sorry, I didn't hear that. Can you speak up?' The shetland pony says, 'Afraid not, I'm a little hoarse.'

  4. So I finally got time to work on my Mayflower again! I got a double hernia repair surgery done and the bonus is i got two weeks recovery time(aka ship model time) Double bonus: I get to wear very stylish graduated compression stockings for a month I made a quick jig out of scrap wood so these(described as deck fittings?) will look similar and installed Also started installing the gudgeon/pintle(not sure which is which) for the rudder attachment.

    Which flag is that?

    Looks like a yacht club flag/burgee, possibly Royal Yacht Squadron?
  6. Welcome aboard sir, welcome aboard! Funny that you came across my build this weekend, as I just opened the new shipyard on Saturday!(the admiral calls it the corner of chaos?!) In between studying, moving, renovating and some damage due to the move, the Mayflower has been sadly neglected. As you can see at the bottom photo, she is minus a beakhead again, due to a 'small' incident during the move, the hull has also sprung a couple of leaks(cracks) which I will fix in due course. After the fix, I plan on fitting the rudder, I see my metal bending abilities will be tested soon!

    Built a basic Moxon vise over the weekend. Planning on doing some scratch building one day, so will have to resaw by hand 😦. Don't have space or access to a band saw. Used some old pine planks and some threaded rod that was lying around, could not have been more than 5$ in total.

    Congrats! Beautiful restoration. Out of interest sake, i'm following a build of a guy doing a 1/18 scale scratch build in aluminum of Lope's Hope, fascinating to see it 'unfolding' https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/74079-118-p51c-mustang-lopes-hope-the-3rd/&

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.
