    America 1851 by Kevin Kenny

    Kenny, the last non-modell pictures shouldn't be allowed in here …… lol, just kidding. I guess I am not lonely when I say " I am jealous, of where you are located" Still waiting for that lottery win, so I can move.
  2. Michael, I can't click the like button because of all of the devastation the fire has created. However, even though the raging hellish fire that picture is beautiful.

    What have you received today?

    I am so frustrated why a complete set of cartridges are more expensive than the printer itself. Specially the HP brand, now having a Brother laser (b/w) as well, at least those printouts has become cheaper. Considering using other services (i.e Walmart) for color prints that I really need to save. I like to be able to print 11x17 too.
  4. For me and our area, sunny with current temp of 43. Forecast for tomorrow....... very much the same.
  5. I am not going to like it either, Michael. Can't imagine how bad the fires are. Seen what's going on through media, but that doesn't show the total devastation. My thoughts are with you all.

    Do you have animals to 'help' you build?

    Did he ask for food as compensation for letting you know?😁

    Bought a domain name with rights for 27 dollars, turns out previous owner forgot to renew. Last valued at 2900 dollars. It's a great name for a specific industry. Will see how it turns out.

    I have the same machine, tried it out when I got it, but since then. Quiet and smooth running motor.

    So, I felt ashamed not opening my 50 cents, first print -81 edition (last revised same year year), felt even more bad when hearing each and every page being turned. The fold-outs has never been used, was afraid just to open them 100%, so I didn't. Bought the book at book store in Oregon, with a listed price of $50.00. Had been sitting on the shelf for five years or more according to the store keeper. The condition of the book is in pristine condition.

    Lou, no..... I headed eastward, east of 395. We have the same nature in our area just like the Gorge.

    Headed out for a ride yesterday, probably the last one this year. Beautiful day but cold on the way back home.

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.
