    What have you received today?

    Recieved the gavel as the new chairman of our lodge.
  2. Very nice setup you have Mark...… Do you have a humidifier in the room for constant moisture content?
  3. You have a whole store! No need for you to buy anything, you have hiding somewhere...….
  4. Mark, I think we need to see a picture of your "workshop"
  5. I am running an older Proxxon. It's not being used much so I can't justify a Byrnes........ yet! However the tips link is useful for me as well.
  6. Mark, are you using the mallet when planking as well, just to have them forced into place? lol
  7. That planking looks great! What kind of tool did you come up with?

  9. Popeye, thank you for the kind words.
  10. Maybe just to hard on myself.....the height is perfect.

    What have you received today?

    "The TurboCAD Design Group is owned and operated by IMSI/Design, the global leader in retail CAD (Computer Aided Design) and home design desktop software, and a pioneer in mobile solutions for the AEC (Architectural, Engineering, and Construction) industry." That doesn't mean they are the best, I have been working with SketchUp ever since it came out. Easy to learn.

    Personal gifts like those are the best. Guess I am right saying you have a parrot?!
  14. Dave, looking good But you have put yourself in a difficult situation since you removed the stanchions from the bulkheads. You need them for guidance when planking "above deck". A friend did just like you and ran into issues. You need the strength to get the planking right.
  15. Thinking about making a jig to get the assembly aligned properly.

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.
