  1. Does anybody ever use solder for PE? I saw an article in finescalemodeller about using it. But it seems to me most just use the glue.
  2. Looking good, the holes are not intended to be fully symmetrical? Scott
  3. I can’t tell from the picture - did you plank the bow reinforcement or is that the sanded ply? It looks like planking and if so those bends look tricky. Scott
  4. Received a used circa 1965 copy of Richard Hough’s Dreadnought - A History of the Modern Battleship. Smells a bit musty but can’t complain given it was $15. Excellent reference material and photos.
  5. A great start. I have this kit waiting Sir Francis so will be following along - Scott
  6. Last month Toronto announced so far in 2019 they fixed 13,000 potholes in 2019. In a single day blitz they say they did 4000. I see no evidence of it on Highway 401 (the busiest highway in North America) where I dodge an obstacle course every day. Some of these are more than 12 inches deep. Enough to lose a filling when your jaws clang together. It’s quite awful.
  7. Welcome Scott from another Scott. Way down here in southern Ontario we only got 5cm of snow but made up for it in freezing rain. This is a great group of supportive folks - definitely lots of inspiration.

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.
