  1. Hi Lawrence Looking absolutely spiffy at the moment! All your hard work is coming to fruition now. I reckon you you made the right call about the hinges. They definitely look better now. All the best. Cheers Patrick
  2. Hey Steve What a top job you’ve done on the John Cudahy. It was unfortunate about snipping the wrong wire, but, you got over that pretty easily by the looks of it. You’re on the home stretch now. Not long to go. Cheers Patrick
  3. Many thanks Marcus. Yep, tiny for sure! So tiny, that I lost three previous chairs to the carpet monster earlier that night. Hungry little beast, that carpet monster😉😉😉 Cheers Patrick
  4. Hi Pat Lovely, finely and beautifully excecuted details. Very crisp, indeed! Cheers Patrick
  5. Hi Keith Many thanks for your comment above. Yep, I agree that she’s a design that takes some getting used to, but, therein lies the attraction for me, I guess. As as a side note, looking back at the construction process so far, I can’t help but think why, oh why, did I go like a ‘bull in a China shop’ and do all the detail work, instead of the painting first? Now, I’ve got to start to think about how I’m going to sand and paint the hull and superstructure with all the detailed stuff in the way. Oh well, such is life, I guess... Cheers Patrick
  6. Hi Ben Welcome back!! I’m glad to see the progress you’ve made. The interior, especially the oven, looks great. Also, as someone who has been through numerous renovations/extensions in our house, I know how you must feel. It’s always satisfying once it’s over. Have a great 2019. Cheers. Patrick
  7. Happy New Year, folks! Thanks for all of your Likes and comments on Genesis’ progress. A quick update. I’ve been working on Genesis’ bridge over the past few days. So far, I’ve managed to make the four chairs for the skipper and other crew members that man the bridge. Off to one side there’s another chair and chart table for the Navigator. Immediately opposite on the other side, there’s a small L-Shaped settee and a table. Still lots of work to go. Have fun! Cyeers Patrick
  8. Congratulations on doing those head rails, Phil. They’re looking fantastic. I know, from past experience just how tricky they are to do, so well done. Cheers Patrick
  9. Hi Lawrence She’s really coming along nicely. Are you sure you weren’t a master shipwright in a previous life😉??? All the best for the year. Cheers. Patrick
  10. My God, Phil - you do work fast! Looking mighty good. Cheers. Patrick

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.
