  1. We are former Pilot owners, too. Had one back in the toting kids around stage of our lives. Much more car than we need at present.
  2. Well, I didn't receive it -- I had to go get it (in Charlotte, NC), but we just got a 2017 Honda CR-V EX. We had a 2004 CR-V for 13 years, probably the best car we ever had. Hope this one will last just as long. It's definitely a lot cushier than the old one.
  3. Are we talking SMS Scharnhorst/Gneisenau or DKM Scharnhorst/Gneisenau?
  4. Yep, ZHL is a known and well-documented IP thief and thus a non-starter at MSW.
  5. A couple of lug-rigged vessels are available from Soclaine.
  6. Of course, I should add that Dirk has done an exceptional amount of super-detailing on his model, which you might also choose to do, but the kit makes a great model straight out of the box, too.

    A brand of propane gas torch.
  8. Depends on how sure-handed you are. I have built all of my hulls without a keel clamp and have only burned and/or nicked myself a few times. Sherbourne is a great kit -- instructions are a little sparse, but plenty of build logs here. Especially have a look at Dirk's (Dubz). It's a gem.
  9. Hello, iosto! I have moved this log to the kit builds section since you are starting with the CAF kit. This is a good example of a 'kit-bashed' or super-detailing project. Cheers!
  10. Every social media platform has its own methods of operation and conventions on proper usage. If nobody ever told anybody how to do stuff right, we'd all keep on doing it wrong! 😉
  11. True, it might be locally very popular, and that should be factored into the asking price. By "not a particularly popular subject" I was thinking more about shallow-draft Dutch yachts compared to, say, three-masted men-of-war with lots of guns. 😉

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.
