  1. Both father and son have developed a bad habit of standing around on bits of wood scattered about on the job site, good way to get a nail through one's boot.
  2. We're in a drought here, hasn't rained for two days! All kidding aside, it's been one wet spring. Farmers and shore birds suffering.
  3. Speaking of getting old............I'd completely forgotten about this topic!
  4. I think not Keith. I and I'm sure I speak for everyone else who has been following your build, have anticipated seeing your beautiful hull freed from it's building board, uprighted and taken to wind and wing.
  5. Sad news indeed, my deepest sympathies Paul. They are as much a part of the family as the people are. Our cat Amelia passed on her respects.
  6. I purchased a completed model of the Endeavor, she's dirty and tired, missing the long boat and the rigging, both standing and running, is starting to part in many areas. I purchased an AL kit off eBay that's only missing the hull. The two together cost me less than half the price of a new AL kit and I get the following 1) a well made Endeavor model that I can practice rigging on 2) the correct rigging line to use for replacement, 3) the longboat as would have been original to the model, 4) mast and blocks and other parts that I plan on adapting to the Tennessee 5) and a set of plans!
  7. Keith Did it pass your wife's and daughter's muster? I think it's beautifully striking!
  8. I woke up the old tractor from his long winter's sleep.
  9. It's high spring here in Michigan, the hummingbirds have retuned and tulips are through blooming for the year. I'm posting a photo I took yesterday of our ornamental crabapple tree. It's a good thing I took the picture yesterday because we got an inch of rain last and it knocked down a lot of the blossoms, it won't be this pretty again till next year.
  10. Chris I use my post, The French Prize, as an example. If someone like myself is passing on their thoughts on what they think is a good read and someone thinks "that sounds interesting", they can Google the title/author and get the mechanics of the book at the same time they're determining where to buy if they so choose. I don't find it necessary to duplicate information Google has at the ready when passing on thoughts about a book. In this case would the proper place to post be in Nautical General Discussion? Keith

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.
