  1. That is a work of art Chuck. Well done.
  2. Hi Clare, I've been absent for a bit and just tuned in to your build. An interesting subject and very nicely done. Thanks for sharing.
  3. Many thanks to you all for your efforts and dedication. Thank you Toni for this post, very interesting to know a bit about the Directors. Makes the NRG more personable knowing whose at the helm. Happy Holidays to all. Mark
  4. Glad that worked out for you Mike. Matt does some great stuff and I didn't know he did custom milling. Looking forward to the Morgan taking shape. Mark
  5. Thank you for the links Skipper. The Seaport looks very interesting, especially the mock sea battle. Mark
  6. I just looked at the thin pieces I have and the surface is not sanded smooth, kinda rough. The wider pieces are smooth. I'm sending you a pm.
  7. Hi Mike, OK, no kisses!! Seriously though, I really hope it helps out. You might contact him and see if he can mill some specific sizes for you. It could open up a new source of business for him. Mark
  8. Hi Mike, I know you already have your stock of wood for your project, but this might be an alternative for you and any of the other members. This gent does inlays for instruments/furniture and has stock of ebony and holly and others. I have ordered both ebony & holly strips and sheets from him and they are flawless. Very nice material. With Jeff retiring, I've ordered from him also - again, flawless product - this may be another source. First link is the home page. Second and third gets you to the good stuff. Hope this helps.

  9. Hey Clare, Thanks for the reply and the heads up on the link - I edited it so folks will see it - and also thank you for the link to get through for ordering, I would have scratched my head with no reply from them. I'll try again. Mark
  10. Hi Clare, Thank you for this post on the Tosa Wasen kit. I just sent an email asking to order one, hopefully it will get through. I've been scouring the blog and downloading as many build pics as I can and have almost 200 so far. Don't know if anyone has been to this link but there are five pages with some interesting pics. http://thermal2.exblog.jp/i65/ Second pic down shows Douglas Brooks with ? Enjoy, Mark

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.
