  2. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    hi all been busy today. marking out in miniature can be a pain......even small tools are too large . the following is based on an article in model shipwright issue no 89....the original article was published i nrgs shop notes. the photos should speak for themselves...... the main shaft is 3/16" steel the face is a peice of 1/2" dia brass drill and reamed to 3/16" and then drilled and tapped to take a 3mm thumb screw. the end of the shaft is also drilled centrally about 3/16" inch from the end.....a suitable point is then loctited in. the last photo is just a size comparrison with a small woodworking gauge. cheers.....mick

  6. Rigging for Dummies

    hi kurt it might be worth having a look at "rigging;period fore-and-aft craft" by lennarth petersson and also "rigging period ship models" by the same author. the descriptions are mainly pictorial which is very helpful for a beginner. you can then read biddlecomb and steel and it may not be such a chore. hope this helps. cheers....mick

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.
