  1. 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)
  2. Well done everyone. Hope I'm still here when we double the posts. Thanks Jim !! Pythagoras (Tom)
  3. Andy and Frankie, May I also recommend RESOLUTE by Martin W Sandler. Pythagoras (Tom)
  4. 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)
  5. 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)
  6. 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
  7. Glad to hear this, Phil, I hope for the same success for your other eye. Pythagoras (Tom)
  8. Just ordered Chucks Royal Barge, Syren can wait, I can't !!! Pythagoras (Tom)
  9. Hey Ron, I misread your earlier post about the vise your admiral bought for you and thought you had a vice admiral too. Sorry I misinterpreted. Pythagoras (Tom)
  10. This is not what I did today, but what I tried to do. Boy Scout training said "do a good deed every day" It's been a long time, but today I followed an elderly lady out of the grocery store. She was pushing a cart with a medium sized cardboard box in it and a cane hanging over the push handle. I came along side of her and said "Could I help you put that box in your car? She looked up at me with a puzzled look and said, "It's empty". Oh well, I tried!! Pythagoras (Tom)
  11. Jack, Pythagoras here!! We always bring a supply of Zweigles back to Florida when we leave NY. We love them. Tom Edit, Jack, Wegmans, our favorite grocery store, also has a "knockoff" Zweigles and they are great!!! Tom, again!
  12. Shean, As a former upstate New Yorker (Mohawk Valley and the Rochester area) please accept my warm welcome to this forum. To repeat others, you can't find a more knowledgeable group of folks willing to share. I hope you do a build log on Chaperon. I have finished my Chaperon, but am not computer savvy enough to do a log. Have fun, Pythagoras(Tom)
  13. Phil, I have no experience or knowledge in this area. I can only send my best wishes for a very successful outcome. 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.
