  1. Now look what you made me go and do!!!! 😡😡😡 Thanks Jim, just ordered one to go with my large and still growing collection of HobbyZone stuff! 😊
  2. Tough call Hamilton. Making the decision to remove work already done is always the hard part - once the decision is made, the work seems to go a lot more easily and you wonder why you hesitated. Whichever way you go, I’m sure you’ll nail it (pardon the pun).
  3. Great job on the fine fitting of the Garboard plank there Daria, and of course reaching such a significant milestone. Your fantasy house looks fabulous too - I think Dad might be a bit jealous of that one!
  4. Nice to see you back at the bench Hamilton. I look forward to resumption of play on this one!
  5. Nice to see this one back on the bench Kevin.
  6. Congratulations on yet another masterpiece Danny! I’ll look forward to following your motorbike build.
  7. Superb Danny - just as we have come to expect from you! 😊
  8. Congratulations on reaching this major milestone BE. Your planking looks pretty darn good from this distance. I’m sure your assistant is merely guarding the finished product from marauders - and expecting some treats in return!

  10. Great to see you back again Remco - with whatever form of modelling you might tackle. Hope you enjoy your Swedish sojourn.

    What have you received today?

    Actually Lou, there are five basic food groups. They are: 1. Steak 2. Chips (Fries for you Americans) 3. Beer 4. Chocolate 5, Ice Cream Not necessarily in that order.....
  12. Glad to hear you’re feeling better Bob. And it sounds like 3D printing is certainly the way of the future for these types of components.

    What have you received today?

    Congratulations and be prepared to fall in love Carl. You will be singing the praises of this piece of machinery long after you have forgotten the shipping/import costs. Shipping to “downunda” adds about 50% to the price, and that’s before you take into account the exchange rate. But all that is forgotten the first time you use the machine!
  14. Nicely done on the “metal” work Rusty - very convincing!

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.
