  1. I have always liked that type of display stand. Good work on the mast hoops
  2. NRG east coast sharpie would be a great next project. I really like these smaller projects that you can actually accomplish something with limited time. This year we have been decimated by the flu so those of us left are working way more than standard hours per month so it is nice to see some progress.
  3. Very nice progress. Just getting caught up on the build. Once you go Syren you never go back haha!
  4. Dave this is outstanding! It came out really nice. As a current member of the takes forever club I can understand taking a long time. It is going to make a great showing at the IPMS. So with all these new skills do you know what's up next?
  5. I just listened to number 1 on Nelson, gunners and impressment as well as number 13 about the models and am really enjoying them. Great find!
  6. I listen to tons of podcasts and just added the Preble Hall one thanks!
  7. Ug I have a 34 hour drive...... Maybe I will fly.... Ok fine I am gonna fly...
  8. Well worth the price. But then again I have an unlimited budget for books (while the wife has an unlimited shoe budget)
  9. Looks like a wonderful place to have the conference!
  10. The Cheerful is a wonderful little cutter. Seems the cedar is an outstanding alternative. I wonder if a bit of a sensitivity to western red cedar translates over to the alaskan yellow
  11. After seeing the results with mica I will never use anything else. It is so easy to use and looks great. A few bucks gets basically a lifetime supply.
  12. Looking great! I just am catching up on this build and it is going so well. If I decided to do another pob kit this may be at the top of the list.

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.
