  1. Nice progress Freek. On the soldering, why not silver solder? It's low temp with a small torch, works great and much stronger. See you back when you are settled in Holland. Where will you be be living, if I may ask? Cheers,
  2. Super nice work Greg and the way is beginning to look she fits your story! Cheers,
  3. Looking really nice Carl, great Job for sure. Now on to that German cruiser. Karel Doorman could have used a few of them back in '42. Things may have turned out different. Cheers,
  4. Hey Carl, I'm with you on this one and hope I visit often. Be good and hang in there. Cheers,
  5. So sorry to hear about your hands and now the hay fever. I understand and can commiserate with you. See you again this fall. Cheers,
  6. WOW Greg what a great peace of work! Sorry for being late for the fun but better late then missing your build. I read all seven plus pages and thoroughly enjoyed them all. I'll try to keep up to the launching. Cheers,
  7. Caught up with you Denis. Interesting build of a great ship. Thanks for all the added informoation. Cheers,
  8. Hallo Ab, so good seeing you here and showing us how to build a typical Dutch pleasure ship - - witj all the history behind it. I also have most of your books and am a great lover of Dutch ships. I have a project on my wish list to build a mini model of a VOC or Staten jacht in a 6 inch globe of a lamp. I will try to follow your build to learn. Cheers,
  9. Hoi Patrick, Impressive fleet my friend, I certainly enjoyed following all the builds and ready for the next one. Cheers,

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.
