  1. Love the iceboat idea - especially one that might be based on the style that FDR owned/used - I remember Jack posted pictures of it maybe a year or so ago. Scott
  2. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Congrats Per! A company that prioritizes and invests in safety is a good employer. Scott
  3. Battle of Trafalgar - Diorama

    That's quite something! It reminded me of a Pearl Harbor diorama I read about in the Washington Times a while back: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/dec/7/diorama-to-depict-pearl-harbor-before-attack/ Scott
  4. Choosing chisels

    I was (and still am) researching chisels. You might find the Mary may website informative if you are looking beyond just ship building. There is a website called 'chipping away' that sells chisels in packages based on Mary may recommendations. Scott
  5. Hi from Virginia

    Welcome Wallace. This is a fantastic community. Everyone is helpful and encouraging and look forward to seeing your build! Scott
  6. Hello

    Hi Jamco, welcome from another Ontarian! Scott
  7. What have you received today?

    Dziadeczek, I do wish you a speedy recovery! Hopefully the new hip joint will have you running marathons in no time! Scott
  8. What have you received today?

    I picked these up at a local hobby shop that is dedicated to model railways. I'm thinking the EZ line might be useful in rigging battleships rather than melted sprue. The metal rods I will use to help with scratch building and I'm interested in trying the weathering product. Scott
  9. Best place to buy wood in Canada

    For anyone in Southern Ontario I see that the Hamilton Wood Show is taking place on Feb 23-25 at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. You can see the details on the museum website. I’ve never been to this show before but it looks interesting. Scott
  10. Greetings

    Welcome Mike - you will enjoy this site. Everyone is super friendly and helpful! Scott
  11. What have you received today?

    Hi E.J. thanks for sharing - looks like it greats great reviews on Amazon. Scott
  12. What have you received today?

    I’m told about 25lbs. I made a typo in my first entry. He is around 9 weeks old. Night 1 of crate training was a bit rough with the whining but so far the potty training is going well. He absolutely loves playing with my children. I’ve never seen a tail wag so fast when he is with them! His fur is very fine and a bit curly - so far no shedding at all.
  13. What have you received today?

    A 9 month old cockapoo arrived at our house today - 'Oakie'. Crate training starts today! Scott
  14. Great idea Thistle17 with a webcast for a seminar for members not able to get to a venue. At work we use skype to communicate live across the continent and there are a lot of other tools available that are very effective. Definitely something for NRG to consider. Scott
  15. Great idea for the strip wood cart. I did an internet search and found some similar dividers here: https://www.tigersupplies.com/Departments/Large-Document-Storage/Roll-Files.aspx Scott

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.
