  1. Beautiful workmanship Chuck. Anxiously awaiting the group build!
  2. Hi Chuck, Great work while I've been away. I love the workmanship and the size comparison was real nice to see. The price point is very reasonable too. At that you better make a whole lot of kits!
  3. Hi B.E. I've been away and it was a pleasure catching up on your work. Well done!
  4. Ok I've redone the "3 mile island" dolphins and they are looking much better.
  5. That is some beautiful planking Chuck. She is going to be a really fun build!
  6. Ok I went back, stripped off the old decorations and followed Chucks suggestion. I don't know why I didn't catch that when doing it the first time. One down Four to go! Thanks Chuck
  7. Ok Chuck that's a head slapping moment for me. Think I just may have to strip those off and redo them. Thanks all for the kind words and likes.
  8. Hi all, I've been working in bits and pieces as I can find the time to get into the shop. I've made the tiller and added the rudder. I then assembled the sweeps, sanded them to shape, painted them and added the printed dolphin as well as the simulated leather band on the tip. Here are the flags and flag staffs assembled and painted. And here they are on the barge. The shaping isn't as good as Chucks (no surprise there) and I'll continue to tweek them. Basically I've completed her. Just some touching up here and there, figure out a display case and assemble the stands and take some finished pictures. Chuck has again made an outstanding model that is fun to do, teaches you new things and of great quality.
  9. Very nice work Mike. Yes that bend is tricky to visualize at first but it sure looks like you nailed it!
  10. Great discription and photographs. Much better than using proportional dividers.
  11. Hi Jean-Paul That's exactly what I did to get the frames sanded correctly. Well done!
  12. Hi Remco. Great to hear from you again! Glad to hear the move is over and you are settling in. Always look forward to hearing from you!
  13. Thanks Dirk and John. Also thanks for all the likes.

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.
