  1. Welcome, Why not post a picture of your Renown. I have just finished that one too only changed it to reflect another boat?
  2. I'm following this thread with great interest as I would love to be able to use a lathe to form metal parts. I have a Proxxon wood lathe which I am very happy with for most wooden tasks ...
  3. In the story 'Treasure Island' Jim hid in the apple barrel listening to Long John Silver. Some images, films, TV and drawings show it on deck others below deck, perhaps the actual book says where it is? not sure this helps this thread but just a passing thought LOL
  4. what a great opportunity to get a super workshop I am sure it will be fab. I am moving house in 3 weeks time and for the first time ever wont have a space/workshop to use from day 1. So looking at getting something built ---the only issue is size-- I keep going bigger my wife constantly scaling back my plans LOL....
  5. I would be interested to see how you get on, some friends of ours wants a model ship to display and looking around the old junk shops to find one that needs a lot of loving so its cheap to buy. Then I said I'd help get it into a half decent state--
  6. Next year the RAF will be back in the game after a long break with their very new aircraft P-8A Poseidon
  7. Yes, this is a very re-occurring theme. I am following them as I will have similar questions later on my first attempt. Can I suggest there is a item logged under 'modelling techniques to go along with the planking and rope already there?
  8. very much looking forward to seeing 'how' you go about this...:)
  9. thank you all, she is a 'test' for some of the techniques I have seen on builds on here. I must admit Im pleased with her.... looks like a first for this kit on here ...
  10. At last its finished, I had to bit a of a push on as I am moving house soon and almost everything is packed up. I now need to pack up all my modelling tools, it will be a couple of months before I start again. I need to build a garage and workshop first..LOL
  11. Good luck, I shall follow with interest as I am thinking of doing this at some point

    In the west of England as I am sure throughout the UK we are blighted by the devils. I had one of my car wheels cracked by one a couple of months ago Grrrrrrrr 👿👿

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.
