  1. Hi Noramatilda Welcome to the forum. Have you ever tried DeepL in stead of Google translate? Works great! Cheers Pieter
  2. Bonjour et bienvenue de la douce Bretagne ;o) Parce que c'est un forum anglophone la plupart des gens l'apprécient quand tu utilise un programme de traduction tel que DeepL pour rendre tes contributions lisibles pour tout le monde. Amuse-toi sur ce grand forum ! Cheers Pieter
  3. Beer Bear in mind that we are talking 2%-3% alcohol here. Tops. The alcohol works as a natural preservative. Because it didn't keep that long -at least not all the way to India- the Brits invented IPA for export: more hops (preserves too) and more alc. This beer wasn't meant for consumption en route, it was meant for the Brits in India. Cheers! Pieter
  4. Hi Gan Do Welcome to the sawdustsniffers and enjoy Bellona! Cheers Pieter
  5. Hi Gan 24 is a small piece of plywood 5mm thick that comes on 6 behind the metal part 74 to reinforce this part in the middle. You have to shape the sides of 24 at a 45° angle first. You "fold" 74 over this plywood piece so that the middle part of the metal with the 2 "doors" protrudes said 5mm and the side parts next to the doors (= 75) stand at an angle of about 45° when viewed from above. Put this piece into place before adding the deck (22)! You'll want to paint 74 first and add the doorknobs before you glue it in place. Does this make sense? Cheers Pieter
  6. Hi Carl I know I know, too busy with other stuff ... I promise to pick up building soon! Hope your ok, cheers! Pieter
  7. Will follow ;o) Good start, best of luck! Cheers Pieter

    Funny bottle

    Hi all I stumbled upon these pictures of a bottle, found somewhere in an attic in France. The upper part is sealed, the lower part can be taken off. Is this some kind of a ship-in-a-bottle-for-dummies thing? Cheers Pieter
  9. Moin Michael Willkommen bei den Sägemehlschnupfern! Cheers Pieter
  10. Asked the Admiral if she wanted to watch and now she's angry ... <confused>
  11. 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

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.
