  1. What have you received today?

    That looks like fun project!!
  2. What have you received today?

    This is what I found: http://www.tjmodels.com.cn/ I bought the kit off a fella at our New London Connecticut Conference last April as he knew he wasn't going to get to it. Where he got it, i'd have to ask.
  3. What have you received today?

    That's a good question, it's a model from Tiger Models which is a bit obscure. I picked it up due to the pricing of the model and i was intrigued with all the resin fittings. Here are some pictures, I'll need you to help me with the answer to that. Forgive my feet in the pictures
  4. What have you received today?

    Not yet - I'm in the planning phase as I want this to be a working model that I'll never put in the water. Meaning it will be a based static model with controls to turn on/off certain features of the ship like turning the turrets and rudder, spinning props, spinning range finder and lights. Lighting is the biggest addition which is completely new to me and I'm trying to determine the mechanics of it all. Otherwise, I'm gathering a many future materials as I can while I work to clean off a couple projects from my work bench. I'd say, in a couple months as family life permits? Joshua
  5. What have you received today?

    Thanks Carl, I'm excited. I also have a 1/200 of the USS New Jersey with a fiberglass hull that I will make as a working model but have gravitated to the Yamato just due to the availability of these detailing parts for the Yamato at this scale.
  6. What have you received today?

    I received this purchase last night for the secondary turrets to my 1/200 Nichimo Yamato kit - I thought it was just going to be a sheet of photo etch, I didn't realize it was going to be such an assembly project on it's own! I can't wait!
  7. Alaskan Yellow Cedar

    Check out my PDN, I used the Alaskan Cedar for the deck and it came out great. Used Danish Oil as a finish.
  8. Hello, I forgot I had started a build log on this, but I have a pretty substantial update. This project was a first for me in that I've never worked on two modeling projects at the same time but my PDN has been dragging a bit since I got hung up on the kit supplied cannon that was way over scale. Progress is being made but I've had hard time moving beyond resolving that issue so the light house has been a fun distraction. And after 2 years with PdN, I'm feeling the need for a "quick win". Over the weekend, I've gotten very close to being able to have an assembly party. So much time is spent on making parts before you can actually just sit and put them together. For the light house, it's been mainly getting things painted and I was little intimidated with how to strip the main body. The kit provides a couple options, one being the stripes printed on card stock that you can wrap around the dowel. Over time, that has yellowed and the printing is a little low quality. It also offers some red tape, which I did attempt to use but didn't care for the effect on that either. In the end, it was Tamiya tape to the rescue. For me, it was a the first time use but I am an instant fan! Granted, I ended up with 2 more stripes than in real life but it came out very crisp that in no way am I messing with it. Waiting on some acetate sheets that I ordered for the windows and then it will be party on! Here are some pictures over the past couple months! Enjoy
  9. Hi Kurt, It took a few tries, yesterday i brought in the wrong issue! January of 1999 vs. 2009. Anyway, I created a shareable link to my dropbox account where the file is housed and you'll be able to download the PDF - it's 22MB, so it's a little too big to send. Just click "Download" at the top right to save the file. It's an interesting article by the way! Hope this helps! Joshua https://www.dropbox.com/s/wcbhnf5qbl566yt/SA SIS 2009.pdf?dl=0
  10. I should be able to scan that section for you, I can have it to you on Monday
  11. When the RMS Olympic - sister to the Titanic - homing in on its radio beacon in dense fog, rammed the Nantucket Lightship 117.
  12. Yeah Bill, What's up with that!? Joshua
  13. Oh Cathead - I think you were excited to participate from the beginning Thanks for posting!
  14. Wayne, you look ready for some serious hiking! Thanks for participating! Joshua

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.
