  1. You have the instruction book for the Roger B Taney by Dikar?

    Does it tell you how to assemble the deckhouse? Figures 29 and 29a?

      Hi Cooey,


      My guess is that I have the same instruction  book as yours. It jumps from fig 28 to 30. There is written instructions though they don't say to much.



  2. Yeah, that boat in these pictures is really about 2 feet long isn't it? Very nice!
  3. You say obsessive, I say freaking awesome!
  4. Thanks for the detailed explanations and pictures. Fantastic work! The effort you took on these pieces sure paid off.
  5. Amazing!! So how did you make the 90 and 120 degree handrail fittings? That anchor is pretty awesome too. That's some real eye candy there- well done!
  6. So sorry to hear that news Jesse. Sending thoughts of strength your way so you can be the rock your family can lean on.
  7. Geez Mark! Strokes are scary even if they are minor. Both you and Janet are in my prayers now. You are at the top of my list as one of the people that make this site so good. I have no idea how you can follow so many builds and topics and offer encouragement like you do, but thank you! Please get better!
  8. Will you be bashing the Billings Boats Osberg kit? That's going to be treat!
  9. Hi Lawrence! Laporte, Colorado is several hours north of me. It's north of Fort Collins near the Wyoming border. I'll check out the LEDs - those sound pretty neat. I need to catch up on your build too. I've been working on the house and we are planning to gut one entire level of the house and re-do it, so I won't be posting much. Thanks for all the likes donrobinson!! Much appreciated.
  10. Thanks for the kind words Michael! You are doing amazing things at 1:75 though!!
  11. You know, every time I look at you detail shots, I have to wonder if I should take up origami or beer drinking instead! Your build gets more stunning with each change and addition. Fantastic work Michael!

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.
