  3. Hello Lukas, My heritage is Czech. Welcome to this most wonderful site. Enjoy!! Pythagoras (Tom)
  4. As Chuck has mentioned in his carving tutorial, common rubbing alcohol is the solvent to use for glue sticks. It has worked perfectly for me. Pythagoras (Tom)
  5. Hello and welcome to this forum from a fellow Floridian. Pythagoras (Tom)
  6. Hi Michael, Those carvings are great. I'm working on mine now. Do realize that you have to carve the back side of the blanks when carving the port side leaves. It was not mentioned in the instructions and there are no port side pictures. I must have had a dream about this as I woke up one morning and said "SHAZAAM" Keep up the nice work. I'll be following you. Pythagoras (Tom)
  7. Building Queen Annes Barge on the St. Lawrence River Pythagoras (Tom)
  8. Matthias, I hope I can make mine look half as good as your barge does. I will be starting it this May. Looking forward to following your log. Pythagoras (Tom)
  9. Ahoy Gary, Permission to come aboard? I just found your log. Great Job!! After all, we are nearly neighbors. I live just down US 1 in Sebastian, Fl. I will follow with interest as I have completed the Niagara also. Pythagoras (Tom)
  10. Hello All, On thee way home from happy hour yesterday afternoon, I received a Merry Christmas wish from a neighbor along the Indian River Lagoon. Wanting to share this with all of you, I TOOK the following picture. Here"s wishing all of our MSW members and family on this orb, a happy and healthy holiday. Pythagoras (Tom)
  11. Here is a pic of my storage rack. Drawer slides from the Home Depot, one quarter inch pegboard and some quarter inch dowels! The dividers are held down by short pieces of dowels glued in their bottoms and are adjustable to accommodate the quantity of each dimension. It's a little more costly and time consuming to make, but its location is perfect and the strips store flat. I also spread those moisture absorbent packages around and I have never had a warping problem. Pythagoras (Tom) Hello Art
  12. Glad to hear this, Phil, I hope for the same success for your other eye. Pythagoras (Tom)
  13. Just ordered Chucks Royal Barge, Syren can wait, I can't !!! Pythagoras (Tom)

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
