Noctavigant

Hello from Central Ohio

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I've been meaning to post here for some time. I've been registered for almost 4 years, better late than never :D

 

I've been following this site for some time, reading over build logs, and trying out cheap MidWest kits before I posted an actual build. I currently build a lot of plastic amour and ship kits, and I am active with our local IPMS chapter. I used to build furniture a long time ago, but after selling our home a few years ago, I had no where to keep the tools and work. I did manage to take over our den and the wife has been completely supporting my hobby.

 

I am a systems administrator for a local school district. Building models helps me relax and keeps me off a computer most evenings. I will be posting a build log of my current project shortly.

Sean,

 

Welcome aboard. As a fellow buckeye, I have to reiterate Lee's suggestion to join the modeling club.  I have been a member for two years, and although I have a hard time making all of the meetings (I am 2 hours away), the ones I have attended are really helpful. The members of this club are some of the finest craftsmen in the state, and you will learn a lot.

 

We are all looking forward to you build log.

Another warm welcome from Ohio.  It’s good to know the Columbus group is active and (reasonably) close.  😁

Sean, 

 

Welcome. Sorry you missed Saturday's meeting. Our next meeting will be Saturday, April 21st in the conference room. Follow the directions you have for the classroom, but when you pass the gift shop, take a right and then a second right and the conference room is at the end of the short hallway behind the gift shop. 

If you send me your contact info, I will send you a reminder and our March newsletter "Ropewalk".  The club contact is shipwright@wowway.com.

 

Again, welcome aboard.

 

Bill Nyberg

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.
