  1. Hi folks I was feeling a bit nostalgic tonight, so I dragged Genesis’ sisters from the fleet for a quick and nasty photo-shoot. Here goes.. Thanks Patrick
  2. Thanks for editing the title of this build log, Chris Coyle. I thought I had posted these photos on the Scratch Built Gallery, but it must’ve gone in as a build log instead, accidentally.
  3. Hi folks. This is my miniature scratch-built model of the wooden sailing yacht, Binker. As is customary with my models, Binker is fully detailed inside, hence the partially planked deck. I hope you enjoy looking at these photos. Thanks Patrick
  4. I reckon you’re right, Josh. The new sails do look better. Cheers Patrick
  5. Hi Frank Top job on furling the mainsail. Nice and neat, as is typical of all of your work. Thanks Patrick
  6. Hi John Thanks for your comments, especially about the scrap piece of wood! All jokes aside, that’s one of the things that’s always amazed me about our hobby. We start with just raw materials, but end up with something very different. A thing of beauty, of character and in most cases, soul...much like your wonderful Maori canoe model. Thanks again and have a great week. Cheers Patrick
  7. Hi Denis I’m just catching up and wow, there’ve been some ups and downs from what I can see, but, boy, you pulled it off beautifully. Impressive, to say the least! Cheers Patrick
  8. Hi Josh That’s a pretty nifty mast-hinge idea you’ve got going on there. All in all, it looks like you’re going full steam ahead. Nicely done. Cheers Patrick
  9. Hi Keith That’s gotta take the ‘Comment of the Year’ Award!! Loved it. Put a smile on my face; that’s for sure. Cheers. Patrick
  10. Hi folks! Thanks for all of your Likes and comments. A quick update for you on Genesis. Last night, I painted the first coat of matt red paint below the waterline. The painting of the rest of the hull and superstructure is still progressing, but will require several more applications of wet and dry sandpaper and paint, before I’m satisfied with it. Have a great week. Cheers Patrick
  11. Hi Mehmet Well...my first reaction on seeing the pump was, ‘now that’s rusty!’ But, if you think it’s in keeping with the overall look and feel that you’re trying to achieve, then it looks appropriate. Cheers. Patrick
  12. Hi Mehmet Once again. simply amazing! Cheers Patrick
  13. Hi Josh I’m in. I’m not quite sure, (or should I say, totally bamboozled), how the devil you’re going to hinge and raise those masts once the boat’s in the bottle, but, I’m sure as hell going to stick around to find out! 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.
