  1. Admin: I believe I have this figured out but wanted you to know about it. I am brand new. I signed in successfully. (got this far before.) I went to the Builder's Logs Forum area and started a new topic. As soon as I hit the SUBMIT button, I got an error saying I was not allowed to do this. When I hit another option (to see if I could recover the stuff I typed), the screen hit an error and said I am not allowed to view the content. I sense that this had to do with the "Remember Me" option when I logged in using Chrome. I told it NOT to remember me (as I was on a shared PC); that may be why nothing worked. I noted that, as I was doing this, the PC kept asking me to sign in. I looked and saw I was NOT signed in ... even though I has just signed in. It seemed to forget about my session as I switched from one screen to another. When I told it to remember me (for the login), it was able to post, view and do other actions. Just so ya know.
  2. I'm just starting the Model Shipways brig Syren. I spent 3 weeks reading thru the Chuck Passaro practicum and feel ready to go. I pre-fitted bulkheads onto the former and immediately spotted a problem. When I line up the laser guidelines on the BF with those on the bulkheads, the "tee" intersection for the deck is not always on point. Sometimes, the bulkhead is higher, lower or dead-even with the deck line on the bulkhead former. So ... what is the proper way to compensate for these "misalignments"? Any advice would be appreciated.
  3. Allanyed, I Thank you. Trust me: I am blessed with being retired AND hating casinos! The SYren will keep me busy for many months!
  4. Thanks for the feedback, everyone. I'm not used to forums but see that I should open "threads" in the proper area (for the Syren.) I'll do that henceforth! Cheers, Shaun
  5. Hello, everyone. I am a semi-retired 67-year old Nevadan and have built Model Airways model aircraft in the past. I am embarking on the Model Shipways brig, Syren. It is, to say the least, an ambitious project but it's also best suited for my tastes and skill sets. I have pored over the threads herein and spent a couple of weeks (literally!) reading the manual provided by Chuck Passaro (my hero). One question looms: Is there anything in particular that you can recommend, guide or even warn me about when building this model? Please let me know! I am starting the beading lines and bevels in the bulkheads, et al. today. I move slowly. Thanks!

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.
