  1. Astrophotography

    I have dreamed of getting this one imaged since I was a kid. I had a shot at it during an observational course in college, but the field of view was so small on the schoools scope, that all I got was the Trapezium. Orion popped up last week at the end of my session with M33, so i swung the scope over and fired off some 120, 15, 5, and 2 second subs, then layered them all together to get this image. One more off the bucket list. The Great Nebula in Orion. And the Running Man lower left, just because. Bob
  2. Hmmm... I'm thinking she is/was an orb weaver. Was the web you saw the typical round spider web we all associate with them? If so, I'd go with that identification. Ours is living just outside the back door where we can watch her catch flies, beetles, and something larger the other day that took her three days to eat. Wolf spiders are hunters and do not spin web. Orb weavers are not poisonous or aggressive. Of course you probably don't want 10,000 of them living in your house Bob
  3. R.I.P. Captain Bob

    I recall sharing comments with Bob about his retirement in Prescott, AZ a few years ago. His was a kind and gentle spirit. May you rest in peace, Capt! Bob

    This is super, Wes - well done indeed! I love all the detail you have put into this and the separating sections really expands the possibilities. Bob

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.
