  1. I forgot to mention that we will send emails out to everyone who orders a kit with your tracking information. Once it is up on our web store, that will be automated, but for now I will send them out personally. Mary
  2. If emailing your credit card info, I usually recommend sending the first 8 numbers in one email, the second 8 numbers in a second email and the expiry and security number in a third email. It is more secure that way. Calling it in is even more secure, but since we are not open 24/7 we do our best to accommodate our customers. Mary
  3. For US purchasers who have already paid for their kit, your refund will be issued once we have mailed out the kits, which should be in a few days. Thank you for your patience. If you still have a PayPal request pending, I will cancel it and issue you a new one with the lower rate. Mary
  4. Bruce - We will be using the US Postal service and sending it by 1st class mail. I know it's more expensive that parcel post, but we want to make sure it gets there, and it's still cheaper than Fed-Ex or DHL. Mary
  5. The NRG had it's conference in Mystic a few years ago and the Thursday tour was of the Seaport. It pretty much took up the whole day and there was a lot of walking, so plan your time accordingly in case you need to stop for rest. Mary Van Dahm NRG Secretary NRG Office Mgr.
  6. Mike - Thank you for being a teacher as well as a builder! The time you take to explain things is appreciated. Also, for anyone who might be interested, David Antscherl will be giving a talk on the Hayling Hoy at the NRG conference this year in October at the New Bedford whaling museum. More information about the conference is on the NRG website. Hope to see you there! Mary Van Dahm NRG Secretary NRG Office Mgr.
  7. Our webmasters have contacted Support and it looks like the site is back to normal now.

    Sorry for any inconvenience that may have been caused!

  8. Do you think you will have it ready for the Manitowoc show this year? (LOL!) Mary

  10. First, I would like to thank Toni for getting the Funding Drive up on MSW. We were long overdue and the slider didn't show how far down we really were! Second, I would like to give a heartfelt THANK YOU!! to all who have responded so far! Without your support there would not be a MSW. For those of you who visit here often, but never give a dime, please consider donating. People like Chuck and our moderators give freely of their time so that you can benefit from this site. Let them know that you appreciate their efforts! Mary Van Dahm NRG Office Mgr.
  11. Don't forget that if you are a NRG member or a registered MSW member (not just a lurker, guys) you can save up to $89 off the conference price!! Sign up early and save on registration, too!!
  12. Hi, Elijah! Don't forget that when your baby brother gets bigger, he is going to start crawling and walking around. Make sure you have a safe place to store your model when it is finished and any other models and parts that you may have on hand when he gets to be of walking age! Store your tools in a safe place, too! Mary V

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.
