  1. Excellent work Daria. You sure are showing Dad how it should be done!
  2. Great videos Chuck! They may have been a pain to produce but they are absolute gold. Thank you for taking the time to do this for the community - I know that many, many people will benefit from this demonstration. If a picture tells a thousand words, then how much does a video tell? Well done, Sir!
  3. I found this in the local hardware store for AUD $9.98. It’s a reasonably soft rubber and you just cut the section to fit both the dust post on the saw and the vaccum hose. I use a Festool CTL 26 and it works like a charm.
  4. Welcome home Sherry. The violin is an outstanding piece of workmanship - I’m sure your daughter is delighted and you can be justifiably proud. Now, get back to work! 😉
  5. Beautiful job on the violin Sherry, and so nice to see you back!
  6. I guess this officially makes you a “rivet counter” Danny! 😀
  7. Great to see you back at the bench Daria. Looks like you’ve got everything under control there - except Dad! 😉
  8. Hello. I watched your construction site "Victory", I was very interested. You wrote about some kind of blueprints for remaking the balcony, the back of the stern of the ship. Have you used photo-tapping? Have you saved these drawings for reworking the model?

  9. Lovely work Bob - just what we have come to expect from you!
  10. Sorry to hear of your health problems Ryland, but glad to hear that you are on the road to recovery. The build is looking is looking lovely.
  11. I can’t say it any better than Pat has Mark, so I’ll just add my support and best wishes through these troubled times. We’re here for you whenever you’re ready.
  12. Excellent work! Your perseverance has paid dividends big time!!!
  13. Congratulations on finishing a fine model - she looks superb on that display base - what a great idea!
  14. Congratulations Danny! No surprise to me, but nice to see you get the recognition you so thoroughly deserve.

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.
