  1. That's so nice, Valeriy. Exacting work beautifully executed.
  2. Gary and Steven, thank you for the comments and to all for the likes. Being that it's difficult if not impossible to attribute this model to any particular ship, I've given it the name Amelia. This in honor of my recently deceased 17 year old cat whom I had the great pleasure to spend almost a quarter of my life with, she was my 2003 Christmas present.
  3. I would hope not. Far North Texas........Denison, Sherman, Gainesville? My son was born in Sherman, at the time we were living in Tioga.
  4. Siggi, Leo is beautiful and amazing. I'm spellbound.
  5. Thanks, Mark. I just needed that little push to move me off the fence. The repaired anchors are hung and this completes all the repairs I'll be doing on my restoration of the model, on to rigging.
  6. Gary, your ability to cram that much detail into that small amount of space in amazing. And for it to also be realistic and beautiful at the same time makes it even that much more amazing.
  7. Gary and Steven thank you for the compliments and thank you to everyone for the likes. The stern lanter is made, installed, and painted. I'm pretty happy with the color combination and the color match. I went with a straight pole from the cabin roof to the lantern, to me it looked more realistic. I didn't want to get too fancy and wind up with something that looked like a 17th/18th century stern lantern so I tried keeping it simple and in keeping with the time period and overall appearance of the model. The jury is still out on the lantern's shape. 🤔
  8. Keith, it's always a pleasure to see an update of your beautiful work. Your explanation of how you got from point A to B is always informative and instructive.
  9. BB, that's a very nice looking boat. You set a fast pace, in just a couple of weeks you're almost done, that's amazing. Look forward to seeing her rigged for action.

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.
