    Is it a European trait to just want to build model ships, whichever type ??? Nice one Dave, quite nicely expressed, Brian ... I would say: You reap what you sow ... deservedly

    open the ******************* topic and be done with it, or is it "I keep on behaving like a ... for the fun of it"
  3. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Don't forget: Europe has an entirely different view on the subject than the US.
  4. You should also take into account the type of ship, for a merchant ship might have them below, a warrior wouldn't, another aspect to conside are the circumstances a ship sails under (is that English?), entering pirated territory, in war with another "sailing power", etc

    Then our bitch is a poor bastard, she has to sleep either in her bench, or in the hall downstairs. An intruder will see her first, ... and probably feel her teeth first as well Pitty, could have been a great photograph ... if you only took the handsome fella on the left! Scotch eggs Patrick, for the natives amongst us

    What did I do today ... went to work (35 min drive) got down to programming, with a wee bit of MSW in between, went home (55min drive ) walked "ze dug" started the barbie, put on 2 lbs of pork neck with me rub, and am currently enjoying a few famous grouses whilst reading my favourite form's postings, the ones I'm interested in ...

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.
