  1. Nice model, Denis. Did you know that you can visit/tour the Seven Foot Knoll lighthouse, oldest screw pile lighthouse in Maryland, at Pier 5 in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. It sits atop the pier now and is open to public. Admiral and I took our granddaughter thru it about 5 years ago. Worth touring. The Thomas Point is open for tours also but not as easy to get to as Seven Foot Knoll.
  2. Sorry to hear about your health issues. Glad you are back with us. Boat looks great. We wish you a speedy recovery.
  3. Good luck with the hand surgery. My wife had carpal tunnel plus "trigger finger" surgery done last year on both hands. All is fine now.
  4. Lettering decals look great Steve. Likewise the draught numbers.
  5. If these are walnut or dark red-brown in color, they may be the planking for the 2nd planking. Mine has a double planked hull with the 2nd planking being thin walnut strips about 0.5 mm thick.
  6. Steve, are you still in that area ? If so, I am about 50 plus miles south on west shore of river.
  7. Looks great, Steve. Cool video. I've heard that soundtrack before.
  8. Who made the jig? And where did you purchase it ?
  9. looking good Kevin. Like the camo colored wheelie bin also.
  10. That is one impressive collection of models you have in those display case, Patrick.
  11. Kevin, go look at Mahuna's build log of his skipjack Kathryn. He used a gel that acted like a heat synch to protect already done solder joints while he did the next one. Or send him a PM . It seemed to work well for him
  12. Is she serving "hot tongue and cold shoulder " ?

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.
