  1. Happy Birthday Mark and Happy 4th Mark! Hope it's a great one!
  2. Wow, you've got a lot done on her Mike! She's looking splendid, as I knew she would. I apologize for not checking in for so long, but a couple medical problems put me down for a while. Still trying to recover, but doing better. As a side, I think the Santa Ana will look good on you!
  3. Sorry I missed the last couple months of this wonderful build Danny. Been a bit under the weather for a while now, but congratulations on another absolutely beautiful cross-section to accompany the Vulture!
  4. That's what I thought Carl, but the 45° Lock Miter Joint was what I had in mind.
  5. Carl that looks like a bit for cutting table-leg joinery. Not sure about the box it's mounted in though.
  6. Looks truly authentic to me Michael! Nice work!
  7. It's amazing to see the amount of research that goes into these older vessels. Very nice!
  8. Like Mark says Jack, it looks like you're overcoming the plan's faults, and doing a great job!
  9. Looks great for a first attempt Nenad! Nice work!
  10. Great looking carronades Jesse! Clever idea with the jig and template! Been going through a wee bout myself lately, and I feel your pain. Hope it goes away sooner rather than later.
  11. Outstanding detail you've managed to achieve in such a small size Patrick!
  12. Good news indeed Brian! Congratulations! I can only imagine that it must be kind of like seeing things for the first time again!

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.
