      An Incentive to Start A Build Log - New Plan Set from the NRG   03/17/2018

      An Incentive for Starting a Build Log

      The NRG’s Generic East Coast Oyster Sharpie plan sets have been selling out – we had to reorder prints 2X already.

      BUT nobody has started a build log yet.  As an incentive we have decided to reward the first three (3) MSW / NRG members who purchase the plans and start and continue* actual build logs** from the plans. 

      The build logs should be started in the scratch built forum and labeled with Generic Sharpie – by “your ID”.  When we have six or more build logs up and running we will set up a group build area for the Generic Sharpie build logs.

      The winners will be able to pick any one of the prizes listed below:

      Free registration for one day at 2018 or 2019 NRG Conference                  ($145 value)

      Shop Notes 1 and 2 set                                                                         ($60 value)

      Nautical Research Journal – all content set                                              ($145 value)

      4 CD's or 1 flash drive         

      Continental Galley Washington Plan set                                                    ($65 value)

      1 year NRG membership or extension                                                      ($50 - $62 value)



      *“Continue” means that multiple posts containing build log content must be made for a minimum of 30 days after the initial post.  Logs will be tracked by starting date and the first 3 that have continued for 30 days following their initial post will be declared the winners.

      **Note the words “actual build logs” – no fair showing a few pieces of wood and going no further just to win. 


      The NRG has a new set of plans available for purchase with a free 200+ page full-color monograph .  Check the NAUTICAL RESEARCH GUILD NEWS forum below for details.  This plan set is developed for the first time scratch builder with limited tools and experience.  All materials are standard strip stock available from hobby wood suppliers.  However, it is also a great project for the more experienced builder looking for a smaller project to take a break from the bigger builds.  Remember MSW Members who provide us their real name are considered members for the discounted price.  An email or call to the office before you order with your real name and MSW user name before you order is needed for the discount code.

  1. Hello Barbara, that is a great build by your father. If you need support from german modellers please check this german froum too: http://www.segelschiffsmodellbau.com cheers, Dirk
  2. Please have in mind that a pdf is just a "container". What is in that container can be a pixel (jpg, png) or a vector based image (svg, eps) or or or ... thats a major difference! Turbocad can read eps ... a pdf can be opened in, as example, affinity designer and then exported as eps. That would make sense if it is a vector based image. cheers, Dirk
  3. Are you clicking directly on the arrow? Unfortunately it is absolute stupid, you have to click UNDER the arrow, then it works, up and down. Dirk
  4. Pat, there is nothing to do and/or investigate on our side. These might be local timing issues. A website/Forum is a very complex code thing nowadays and sometimes have hickups on local machines what is not unusual. Simply make sure you post what you wanted to post and if a second click is needed then a second click is needed. ;-) cheers, Dirk
  5. Your Images for our Facebook Page :-)

    These are nice builds but same for you Popeye, I need the pictures bigger :-( cheers, Dirk
  6. Your Images for our Facebook Page :-)

    You should see a facebook icon at the top and bottom of every page here :-) Anyway here we go: https://www.facebook.com/ModelShipWorld/ cheers, Dirk
  7. Your Images for our Facebook Page :-)

    Naa don't remove them here, I find them just to small for Facebook but they are still great shots. But go on and add close-up of the carvings, I like that :-) Thanks Dave! Dirk
  8. I find this attitude of yours to be very inappropriate for a public forum. If you have concerns, address them privately. It really isn't a great idea in telling people what to do. If this message was still there on February 7th, it was because it was still VALID. A reboot with fsck can't be estimated how long it will take or when the hoster will do the reboot at all, because I CAN' T REMOTE DO IT. And I find it extremely unpleasant that I should justify myself here. I can send you my invoice for a lost day as a freelancer. Dirk
  9. > I too encountered all day on the 7th the problems noted above. In the future, these messages should have a more accurate time stamp to include date, time and time zone, and duration (over time) of the upgrade, so we can be better informed. This message WAS ACCURATE, do you really think I can tell you in all different timezones exactly what will when happend? Don't make me angry spending HOURS of MY time to analyze and fix the damn issues by posting messages like this. I lost a whole working day! I'm freelancer ... now calculate. And it was NOT an upgrade, it were unexpected server crashes! @Mark: It is not only Intel it is almost every processor in the world using the typical "speculative execution" (an optimization technique where a computer system performs some task that may not be needed. Work is done before it is known whether it is actually needed, so as to prevent a delay that would have to be incurred by doing the work after it is known that it is needed. If it turns out the work was not needed after all, most changes made by the work are reverted and the results are ignored.) And it is a damn super mega disaster! Our Kernel is up to date so the AT THE MOMENT actual microcode is loaded. Dirk PS: Sorry guys, but that makes me angry atm .. don't take it personal though ...
  10. Your Images for our Facebook Page :-)

    @SawdustDave Thanks, unfortunately the pictures of the "La Couronne" and "Sovereign of The Seas " are way to small :-( cheers, Dirk
  11. Your Images for our Facebook Page :-)

    That's a nice bunch of great pictures with allready lot's of likes on Facebook. Thanks for your input! One thing I would like, if possible the pictures should have a minimum size of 1280px width. I know these are cryptic numbers for some people, in other words, "bigger" would be better: -) cheers, Dirk
  12. Hello fellow modellers, we would like to present on our Facebook page more regularly pictures of your work. If you would like to participate, please post 2-3 of your favorite pictures here in this thread. Gladly from different projects. It is NOT a photo competition or anything else, but it should be reasonable pictures in reasonable resolution. Please also give us the explicit right to watermark these images and post them on facebook! Lookin' forward to your great images :-) Our facebookpage: https://www.facebook.com/ModelShipWorld/ Thanks, Dirk

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.
