  1. Hi Mark, Back in the day when I flew RC I was part of RCCanada.ca. They have a great feedback system. When you click on a user profile you can see and read all the feedback that was entered. When I click on your profile I don't see any indication on your past transaction, don't see your feedback. Am i missing something? Thanks, Jerry
  2. Hello, I am wondering why we don't have any feedback for the transactions that take place on this site. I feel it would be valuable for the buyer/seller to know who they are dealing with. Maybe then we would see more stuff come up for sale. Cheers, Jerry
  3. Lately I'm finding I listen to ocean and rain sounds off you tube on my phone, very peaceful. Jerry
  4. Dave, Your computer game post has brought back some good memories. I love that game! I too had all the extra courses and my favorite was Banff Springs. That was long time ago but I wish i still had that computer. Other games that I played a lot were adventure games; Secret of Monkey Island, Leisure Suit Larry, Police Quest... Ahhh Great times. Jerry
  5. Thanks for the comment and the likes. Dave - I am finding that i'm spending more time building now then before. By having this desk in the rec room I feel more included then isolated building in the the utility room. It's nice to be able to hangout with my wife and kids and still do your own thing. Plus it's nice to have natural light peek in too. I do still have utility room space set up which i use for more of the dirtier work. The carpet does cause a problem. Last week I dropped a carriage wheel and it took me like 10 minutes to find it, lol. I wasn't sure what to do with the top so I recently ordered a 24"X 36" self cutting mat. Should protect it some what. Originally I was thinking of getting handles for the drawers but now i hate to drill holes in them. Another idea I thought was to router the ends, but not sure if its possible now. The way they open is to grab them on the edges and pull, no special hardware. They do open easily. The desk came in three pieces and each piece is quite heavy. The top is screwed to each end from underneath and its free standing. The top is 30" X 60" X 1 7/8" thick. And the drawers inside dimensions are 12 1/2" X 25 1/2" and vary in depth from 1 3/4" to 8" deep. The desk is super stable even with all the drawers fully open. Jerry
  6. I finished organizing my new custom desk that i had the local Mennonite build for me. The desk is made out of wormy maple wood and all the plastic containers were bought at Dollarama. Surprising they fit quite well. Hope you enjoy it. Cheers Jerry
  7. Great job! Glad you got some sap when you did. We are back to winter in SWern Ontario. Jerry
  8. Very nicely done. What scale is it? Would you have a pic showing the whole thing? Cheers Jerry
  9. Michael, I would like to share my newest purchase with you. 1963, but still runs like a charm. Thanks for the help. Cheers. Jerry Just wondering, what type of mill do you have? LOL
  10. Michael, Your workshop is filling up.... Love it, Very Nice! Jerry
  11. Moxis, I wonder if they would deliver it to Canada,,, hmmm Thanks for the site.
  12. Michael, Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for one on kijiji. I have been looking for Southbend 9A for some time but this one might be a better lathe if I can find one. Cheers Jerry

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.
