  1. Maybe it's time to renew my EAA membership. SolidWork is part of the French Dassault Systemes. EAA annual membership is 40 dollars according to their website.
  2. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Lou, There's no plate for him and you are almost done. But yes, he certainly has good table manners.
  3. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    That's the charm with vinyl albums, but if you take care of your albums you shouldn't have such issues. With the recording technology of today, that little noise is barely noticeable.
  4. Scary but beautiful picture!
  5. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    I had a Dual 505 and 505-3 back in Sweden, both has been refurbished and are in by my parents. When I moved to the states I left my Denon/Dual equipment behind. Time to find a turntable again.
  6. Cold morning, should have put on jeans instead of shorts. It's noon and temp at 76 and wind from North. Could be a great modeling day. Had to work half day.
  7. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Black is back, AC/DC Vinyl album is coming back, many groups are now getting their music out by streaming media or on the old black vinyl. Turntables are coming back too.
  8. Lou, It is on the colder side. Morning temperature today 51. But again no wind and lots of sun.
  9. Having pleasant days in middle of WA state mid to high 70's, sunny days. Yesterday, the wind changed blowing now from North, drove home at 5pm with temp at 76. Very nice!
  10. What have you received today?

    Received a request to build a model from a friend for his office, he's working for expedia. Need to build something more modern.
  11. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Already have that weather, been occupied with other things and not paying attention to that Blue lady, and it's not Bluenose this time.
  12. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Removed the carburetor to have it re-tuned. Bike starts with choke but won't idle after. Fortunately, I have many co-workers willing to help me out. Guessing it's the jet needles.
  13. The "What did you do in your Garden today?" thread

    Very nice gardens, all I did today was to watch how much the grass has grown again...….. phwee
  14. What have you received today?

    Gotta keep this one quiet as this is a gift to the Admiral. All these laser cut parts are to put together without glue and with lots of moving parts. Have to build it in secret, I will stain it in order to give it more character. Bought it from ModelExpo. Another way to keep her happy, while I am away at the shipyard.
  15. What have you received today?

    Is there any way to get the plans for laser-cutting and cnc-machining? Would love to build this one, because I have a friend with such machines.

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.
