  2. Just been out to town to pick up a few items, all of which I paid for using a contactless credit card. Although there have been concerns raised in the UK about how quickly we are moving to a cashless society, I wonder how much faster this virus would spread if we were still passing lots of paper and coins amongst ourselves when we shop ?
  3. OC Where are u located ? Down here in Devon, I have seen a number of volunteer groups getting started who will go out and do shopping or collect medications for those unable to do so due to age or self-isolation. Maybe you could search Facebook for your area ? And these groups only take your money when they deliver the shopping ! Clive
  4. Reading all the commentary about toilet paper, I am reminded of a sign in the submariners quarters in Malta during WW2 ............. "Two sheets per s++t. Or you're a S++t" Sound advice in current circumstances !
  5. Harry, I moved my ship models from Hong Kong to Beijing and finally to Devon {UK). Each time the shippers built stout crates from pallet timber, lined with polystyrene, and wedged polystyrene blocks around the hulls and between the yard ends and the crate sides. Other than a couple of fittings that were shaken loose, they travelled just fine. Clive

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.
