  1. Hi There are several model clubs in south Norway. Do not know what is in Stavanger. Can try to find a list of Norwegian model clubs. There are also some Norwegian members of MSW Will also talk about this at the next club meeting Bjørnar Svendsby
  2. Hi Per I speak both Norwegian and Swedish. But they are quit similar, except for local dialects. Bjørnar
  3. Thanks for welcomes and likes. I am soon ready for some workshop time again. My first rehabilitation after the leg lost is soon over. Tings is going quiet well. So i am ready to " make sawdust" again. Have a pretty nice workshop, but need some long days to get rid of the chaos And gradually some Gjøa pictures and maybe a building log will come Bjørnar
  4. Hi Morten It was very interesting. Do you think there could be a slight chance to get to see inside the boat. Wondering about design details inside. Bjørnar Svendsby
  5. Now I surfed around on your site long enough, without presenting me. So her i go My name is Bjørnar Svendsby and live in a small town in Norway called Halden. My interests are everything with model building Like many others, I built models as a youth. And has begun again in old age. I have projec on Gjøa, a Norwegian ship that sailed thrugh the northwest passageways in 1903- 1906. She was many years in a park in San frasisco, before she was taken back to Norway and put in a museum. It will be a POF building so things take time. I've only managed to build some small parts. But to have a building that is slightly faster have I begun to build Chucks Cheerful. Photos and maybe a log on either Gjøa or Cheerful come, but it will take a while. Gotta get my new leg in order first. Staying at a rehabilitation center for amputees for a few weeks After reading much about pirate kits here on this page, I told someone in my local model club about this. And we agreed to have this as a topic at the next meeting. I will take with me the list of Banned Kit Manufacturers. And I will tell how they Operates, stealing drawings and stock kits that they sell as their own Bjørnar Svendsby written with the help of Google translate

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.
