  1. Mark, I love your last comment on making the scraper. I've been telling the boys this very thing about new skills for years. It's gratifying to see the smile and look of satisfaction on the faces of other modelers when they finally try a technique and discover exactly what you said. John
  2. I have long been interested in the ladder dredge Corozal which used to work the Canal zone in Panama. No plans, so I may have to reconstruct her from photographs.
  3. Mark, I can't express my feeling and concern for you any better than druxy did. My thoughts are with you. John
  4. Check with the Smithsonian museum of American history They have plans of MARAD ships including the C2 design
  5. Finished this one and presented it last night - Tugboat Dorothy
  6. Each build is an opportunity to learn, develop, and refine your skills. You don't have to be the best ship modeler, but you should set a goal to be better than your previous effort. Keep digging!

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.
