  1. Nice to see you back Hamilton. I look forward to updates in due course - no rush.
  2. So pleased to read your update Danny. May this model bring you as much enjoyment as it does to we who follow your builds.
  3. Congratulations on another truly fine model B.E. It is always a pleasure following your builds.
  4. Just to lighten the mood. Do we all remember the Swine flu a few years back:
  5. In the wake of the COVID19 hysteria, this popped up on YouTube recently - rather typical Australian humour.... https://youtu.be/ia0bfWbOLjY
  6. Hi Doug and welcome to MSW. There are quite a number of us Aussies here. I can’t answer your question directly, but another Aussie here is a real whiz on the plastic side of things. Here’s a link to one of his many builds. I’m sure if you post your question directly in one of his logs, or even send him a PM, you’ll get your answer.
  7. Another masterpiece for your final model Danny. Please also see my comments on your other post.
  8. So sad to hear this Danny. You were among the first to welcome me here to MSW all those years ago and have been a mentor for me ever since. As well as your amazing builds, I will never forget the wonderful assistance you gave to me via “remote control” when I decided to rebuild the stern of my Victory. Unlike many others here, I have had the privilege to meet you on a few occasions, and even to share a wee dram with you. I will always remember you as kind and helpful soul, always prepared to go the extra yard to help a fellow modeller. Thank you for everything you have done both for me personally, and for this great forum. You will be missed. Farewell my friend.

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.
