  1. Looks great from here Mark. I know what you mean about having to set the fun stuff aside now and then. It's not always a smooth road.
  2. She looks absolutely amazing Peter.

    What have you received today?

    Wow, you made quite a haul. I was thinking of keeping my eyes open for a tube amp but it might be wasted on me. I'm still learning to play and only play for myself.

    What have you received today?

    I made a Pawn Shop rescue a couple of days ago. It was a impulse purchase based on the one I had when I was 14 (it was a late 1960's US Stratocaster that my brother gave me). I picked up a 2014 Fender Deluxe Player Stratocaster in candy apple red and a 20 watt amp. I was telling my guitar teacher about the one I had when I was a kid. On my way home from my lesson I stopped at the pawn shop and there it was. I can resist anything but temptation. I wish I still had the old one. I understand it's worth some big bucks. Here's the new one.
  5. That looks like a great space Tom. The natural light is a big bonus.
  6. Wow Dowmer. That's a nice looking flag. I love that it has some translucency.
  7. I can't help you with any information but it sure is a beautiful model.
  8. Agree. It's so nice to be able to mill that perfect plank as needed.
  9. I'm looking forward to it Steve. You add a lot of value to the form with your skill and humor. And besides you've become what I consider to be a friend.
  10. Well Steve, whatever you decide to build I'll be looking forward to the log.
  11. I' sorry to hear your throwing in the towel on the Connie. At least you'll come away from it with more knowledge for the next project.
  12. So, you cut those boat parts with the Death Star? Very nice.

    new to me scalpel handle

    That is a nice looking knife handle. If you ever buy the flat surgical handles look for the ones made by Bard Parker. They are head and shoulders better than the ones made in India. The blades fit much better with much less wiggle and they are made of much harder material that holds up better. I have some that I have been using for 35 years and they are like the day I got them.
  14. This is going to be a great group build. I think a bunch of us will learn quite a lot from it.

    The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Lou, I guess I'm down right lucky. 30k would sure hurt.

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.
