  1. Very sad news about Wingnut Wings. They make fantastic and well engineered kits of WW1 aircraft. They never seemed to do a SPAD though. Dave
  2. Good Morning Jorge: is it kit Art. 740? It looks like the English instructions are 2 pages long
  3. Hi Patrick: I’m happy that you are well a and back in the shipyard with your Syren. I’m looking forward to following its continued construction. The copper plates are the best I’ve seen! Congratulations! Dave
  4. Wow Greg, you made fast work of that! The weathering is exceptional. Quite a contrast to your Emden. Dave
  5. Just when you thought you have seen everything! This interesting vessel comes along and just in time for Christmas. The video is excellent as well. This jumps to the top of the wish list Dave
  6. Looks Incredible Dave. Your whole build log was an wealth of inspiration and education! Dave
  7. Welcome aboard Mark ! Beautiful model of the Fitzgerald! It looks too big to be the Carr’s Hobby kit, did you scratch build her? Dave
  8. Hi RGL: In the States we refer to them as "the Greatest Generation" I think for good reason. I have never made it to the Pacific battlefields, but have stood on both Utah and Omaha Beaches in France in awe of what they did. What is your process for etching the armor belts on the hull. At first I thought they were scribed, but they looked raised in your pictures. Dave
  9. Jeffrey: after taking a look at the first picture in your log of the unfinished Hull to your finished ship I think you should be very very proud of your accomplishment! Great work! I look forward to your next project. Regards, Dave
  10. Dave: she is beautiful. The display stand while may be simple (for you) really adds to the models presentation. Wonderful job! Regards, Dave
  11. Welcome to MSW from Dave in Minnesota. Beautiful job on your Bluenose. I’m looking forward to your Syren build!
  12. Hi Pat. After seeing your Sultana, I can’t wait to follow along with your Syren build. Enjoy! Dave
  13. That's a great suggestion Chris! I really like Pegasus with the great figurehead, but something always set me back and now I know it was the dark wood. But I'm a few models away from either ships complexity at this point. Dave
  14. Hi Nic: Cindy and I are sorry to hear about your health problems, but very glad to hear that you are on the mend!!! Take it easy with the recovery, and look forward to seeing you back in the workshop and at Bluejacket soon!!! Dave and Cindy Evans Farmington, MN
  15. Richmond: Thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed browsing through the catalog and looking especially at the airplanes. Many of which I was unfamiliar with and wish they were available today. May be a scratch building project in my future! Thanks again, Dave
  16. Hi Dave: I’d like to pull up a chair and follow your build. Quite a switch from your Battlestation. Regards, Dave
  17. Hi Dave: it looks great! Thanks for the share.

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.
