  12. This will be my first kit build log on MSW and my second wood boat build. The Sakonnet Daysailer, a 1937 club "one-design" boat, designed by John G. Alden. Joe
  13. Hi Niels, Nice submarine model you have there. Here is a method I use to modify the size of photographs so I can use them on forums. Sometimes I'll shoot in Large format and the change to photograph size for download is required. These are the steps I follow and you may have this program or something similar to use on your particular computer: 1. Import your photographs to the computer. 2. Open photo of choice in Microsoft Picture Manager (or similar photo software package that you may have). 3. Click on Edit Pictures, then click on Resize or Compress Pictures (as desired). 4. Select the size you want for your photographs. 5. Then, I always click on Auto Correct and see if the camera software improves the photo; sometimes yes, sometimes no. 6. Go to File, then Save, for the photo. Now the picture is ready and saved for use as an upload to a forum. Hope this helps! Joe
  14. Outstanding model and sea. And then I saw the pen laying on the frame...this model build is really a work of art. Thanks for sharing the photos! Joe

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.
