  1. Welcome aboard! I would agree with everything above and maybe add a variety pack of emery boards yes the ones your wife/girlfriend uses on her finger nails. And don't forget this forum is the best tool in your tool box use it often. Best Regards
  2. My Peterboro Canoe kit by Midwest arrived today. Won it on eBay for $19.50. The box is in sad shape but all the parts and instructions are there still in the sealed plastic bags.
  3. No, Thank you Chuck and all the others involved in starting and maintaining this great forum. And Congrats to MSW.
  4. Actually the USS Carl Vinson was the first US Naval Vessel named for a person who was still alive although he passed away prior to commissioning. His wife did the honors at the Commissioning ceremony.
  5. Hello Bob, I just found read through this thread. Amazing job so far. Now that I am up to date I will be following along if you have room for one more. Best Regards and happy new year. Art
  6. I have one and have pics of using it to build the keel and frames in my San Francisco Cross Section thread click the link in my signature below. Dead accurate for frame alignment. Also have a link for all of the Hobby Zone stuff I have built and used.
  7. Not today but for Christmas my sister got me this Trumpeter 1/700 DD Eisenhower. I was on the pre-comissioning crew for the real thing so I am a "plank owner" which means that supposedly I have the right to claim a piece of her when she is decommissioned. This was my first ship after getting out of A School in 1976. Only thing is I don't really do plastic models and I am not sure that I want to tack this for my first one. I also got this just prior to Christmas. This one I bought myself. Yes it is a life size remote control duck from Vacu-Boat. I am going to build it up for the Admiral so that she can chase the ducks around our pond while I am sailing my RC Sailboats. I will probably do a build log for this one but it really comes mostly done just add ballast and electronics.
  8. Beautiful work as always Bob. What else have you been working on? I have not been around much lately so I have been out of the loop as they say.
  9. Wonderful work so far on this one Bob. I hope you are still in NewJjersey till this storm decides what it is going to do. Is anyone looking in on your house while you are away? I don't know if there is anything I could do but if you need me to just shoot me an email. Best regards
  10. Very nice work as always Bob. Looks like a trip back home is just what the Doctor ordered.
  11. Bob, Nice to see you found your way back. I think it must be the South Florida weather or something because I too have been in a real slump as far as modeling goes. Perhaps I can take some inspiration from you and get back to it. Best Regards Art

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.
