    Hello Ab, welcome to the gang, enjoy your stay here at MSW. I liked your nice introduction thread and the way you described your interest for modeling methods..... Nils
  3. Hi Toni, congrats to the completion of of your beautiful Swan Class Model, its a fantastic build and looks great....... Nils
  4. beautiful work on the companionway B.E. and the cutter`s hull and its planking is looking wonderful..... Nils
  5. Many thanks Ed, as already mentioned, the shipmodel making will run idle for some time, as I have to find a suitable place to display the Chebec in our home ....... The next project will most probably be the seagoing "Hainan Djunk" in scale 1:30....., as my mind is going "pregnant" with that one for some time already Nils
  6. Hi Martin, thank you so much for your kind words, they are very much appreciated.... I have been doing some necessary repairs and sanding and paint freshups around house and garden lately and there are still some things to be done before the cold and wet period sets in. The glass casing for the chebec has not been started yet, but is one of the to-does on my list. To overcome the rather boring time without a new shipmodel on the slipway, I have reactivated my ( for PC ) Microsoft Flight Simulator and have discovered some beautiful regions to explore in the world, but not only that, I have as well also tried out a wonderful train simulator to explore the main- and narrow gauge lines of New Zealand recently.... Cheers, Nils
  7. Agree with Michael, a beautiful slim model, very nice work Ilhan, The built 4-blade prop also looks great.... Nils

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.
