  1. you can, but you must take care that the wood is of an even thickness all over else you'll be sawing at multiple angles
  2. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Ihope you get what you wish for Wayne. Any building time too?
  3. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Lou's right Mr Bunny. Another advantage on Scandinavian countries: They are very pleasant people, and most speak good English ...
  4. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    My heart goes out to you Per. Spent the day Monday with the Admiral in Leavenworth doing pretty much the same thing. Anniversaries demand that kind of sacrifice. Woe be to the one who forgets or is not willing! Those three hours were a reward, Lou!!!
  5. I think I'll have to book my stay for next year ... a cabin at the AF Chapman, and an afternoon at least at the Vasa museum

    The never ending story, at least it feels that way. Hang in there mate
  7. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Sorry to hear that. I wish you and your family lots of strength. Hope it turns out alright and without much ado. I'll be thinking of you.

    John, You got the wrong "honey" ...(?)

    Tell me when you come to the Netherlands, I've got some stone chores for you Well done Piet. I love the way it turned out
  10. Mr Laza, Have a look here and here you might find them closer to home if you search a bit. Most brass will have a somewhat roundish edge, you could try and file it slightly down to a sharp shape. Having said that, bending will always leave a round edge, you can get a straight sharp edge by soldering two pieces at e.g 90º The size in modelling, however, has it's limitations ... at least that's my experience as an amateur

    Better things, than persons I reccon ...

    Mr Bunny, You honour your name. Looks real smart your Ford. Do you make home deliveries?
  13. When I visited last year, I recall it to be far less light than what I see in your pictures. Still they bring back good memories. It's certainly worthwhile the visit. I hope, as you did, to go there a second time!

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.
