  1. You have any Cook Outs? Grilled burgers with fresh ingredients. Made to order, so they are slow. .
  2. If it tastes good, it must be bad for you. I'm with Carl on the Diet stuff. Too many chemicals that aren't good for us. Juices and water for me. With the occasional adult beverage as needed.
  3. Here in the Southeast, the outlets are Hardee's. Same company. Culver's is better.
  4. Hmm, I haven't built a tank in forever. 😲
  5. It's an MRAP ATV with all those goodies. Imagine the Abrams TUSK kit they have. One version is a full interior.
  6. Yeah, really like a large moving map display. Extremely detailed. Is it a full detailed interior?
  7. Alclad makes lacquer based metallic paints in several different shades, but it's sprayed on. AK interactive also has a line, Xtreme metal paint, but it also is an airbrush product. I read their how to Here: http://www.ak-masters.com/ak/NEWSMARCH2015/XTREME_METAL.pdf It supports polishing and masking with good results, but it's a spray.
  8. Waiting with bated breath, EG. Ya know, you could leave it in overall black, apply national markings like the US Navy VX-4 Phantoms at China Lake, the ones with the Playboy logo.
  9. EG, the primer looks very good. I suspect you may see a few minor blemishes, but you'll overcome them. 👍 I've never attempted a BMF, although I have built up a few plated passenger cars.

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.
