  1. I wish my alter egos came with hands as well as voices. It would sure save money on clamps.
  2. This has been a fantastic thread to read. So many interesting careers! I grew up in a resort and wound up buying my own resort (with a huge mortgage) while still in my final year of university. I was too young to know that wasn't wise. I sold out after only seven years. My schooling is in environmental biology and I spent a few miserable years in a government job counting fish before embarking on my current career. For over twenty years, now, I have been doing lighting design and sound design for live theatre. I also do a fair bit of design and construction of special effects and dabble in stage management when the opportunity arises. Its an odd life. As a private contractor, I am either working 20 hour days or not at all and it will never make me rich but the secret is that if they quit paying me, I do it anyway for the fun of it! (Please don't tell on me)

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.
