  1. Wonderful restoration I think the family will be very happy to have their fathers model back in prime condition.
  2. that's a really nice color I might have to try that one when I get to that point. The wife always has a few of those coupons
  3. Thanks for checking in. I am not sure I am going to make but will try
  4. Growing up I always thought the Old Baltimore shot tower was pretty interesting. Haven’t been in awhile but it was a cool trip as a kid
  5. I can never remember where I saw this but I do remember seeing a first or second rate full quarter scale presented like this. The model had just lower mast and the shrouds and ratlines placed. All of the yards and the topmasts along with all the appropriate anchors were made in complete detail and presented on the ground beside the ship. It was a very impressive display
  6. Happy New Year to everyone! This was my holiday season to work so I have only had a few days off in the last few weeks. Things should be getting back to normal soon. A bit late but here is the best pic I can find of the helpers.
  7. Weirdly shaped planks is my middle name😁. Looks nice from here
  8. Love this. One of the members in my club is building this from the same monograph and it seems to be coaming along great. Thanks Greg for the link very interesting.
  9. Truly amazing work! Thank you so much for taking the time to share with us.

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.
