  3. Very interesting. I just finished Palin's book on the Erebus and can't but wonder why there is a model of the Terror but not of the flagship of the expedition. Anyone has an idea why? The book is brilliant btw. Cheers Pieter

Young man "Ow sorry madam, we ran out of broccoli but we're getting fresh broccoli delivered tomorrow." Old lady "Thank you young man. Bye." 5 minutes later.

  8. I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
  9. The older I get the earlier it gets late. Nuff said ;o)
  10. Hi all! I live in the part of France called la Bretagne. Have a look at the picture below. It's the green part in the west. Many people think it rains a lot chez nous which is not true. It only rains on Parisiens. This map shows which parts of France are on yellow, orange or even red alert because of the abnormally high temperatures. In spite of living in a green region I can't get myself to work on my ships (or stack the estimated 5 m3 firewood that's still lying in front of my garage). My shipyard is upstairs, under a minimally insulated roof orientated to the south. I's about 35°! So I am passing my time underneath a tree enjoying the ever present sea breeze and an ice cold pastis. How are you coping? The UK seems very hot, so are Holland, Belgium, Germany, Spain etc... Are you guys building? Cheers Pieter
  11. I burn about this much wood every year (well mainly from October til April). And that in a part of France where winters don't happen... when we have half a day of snowfall once a year that leaves 1 cm of snow on the street everybody panics ;o) I guess it's a bit different in your part of the world!
  12. Be careful with what you say ... it's 10 m3. See you soon Carl! Cheers Pieter
  13. Sorry sorry ... there are so many other things to do ... yesterday I had 12 sters of fire wood delivered, that'll keep me busy for a while ...
  14. Hi all. I thought maybe someone might find this useful. Quote: The Prize Papers are documents seized by British navy and privateers from enemy ships in the period 1652-1815. The documents contain ship’s journals, lists of cargo, accounts, plantation lists and interrogations of crew members, business- and private letters. Unquote. The information has been made available to the public on June 20th 2019. Cheers Pieter

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.
