G'day all

 

I've just recently become a member of this forum having searched high and low for a decent ship modellers forum and hey presto, here I am.

 

I am a retired Architect/D&T Teacher through illness (COPD) since my diagnosis in 2012, so now I can spend plenty of time working on my ship/s. Having previously done numeric modelling projects from painting model figures through to building models.

 

I'm presently busy with HMS Terror by OcCre as a means of gently leading me back into the hobby, it's a lovely little starter and it's rekindled my love of working with wood (as a D&T teacher my speciality was graphics and wood working), albeit on a smaller scale.... I love it and this forum has brilliant links to models and tips.

 

Finally, so I don't waffle on to much (as a teacher, km blessed with the gift of the gab) lol, I've got on the shelf an OcCre HMS Endeavour awaiting my attention.

 

So finally guys, thanks for accepting me

 

Dave

Welcome aboard Dave.

 

By the way it is never too late to start a build log.

 

Best Regards

Welcome!  The Terror looks like a nice kit, I think I speak for many when I say it would be great to see a build log :)

Gidday and a warm welcome from the land Downunder Dave.

You'll find a lot of support here. As a former teacher I'm sure you know there is no such thing as a stupid question. Infuriating at times but not stupid.

All the best with your build.

Mark.

Welcome to the forum Dave. I can say from experience that this is a great place to be if you are looking for any level of support in your ship building. Have fun! I look forward to seeing your build log.

Thanks one and all, much appreciated.... I look forward to beginning my HMS Endeavour log, will have a look around at other logs to see how and what format they use....  I will however start taking pics of my Terror for a mass posting of progress thus far 😎

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.
