  1. Thanx for the heads-up. I’ll start mine in the next month or two and get my sanding blocks ready if I need them...Moab
  2. Lawrence; little off the subject but you mentioned adding the chains to minimize loss of the rudder. I’ve been reading some historical info about Captain Cook (by the way, great reading). During his voyages rudders were lost (e.g. hitting a reef). Also natives would row out to the ship and take metal nails from the rudder and often get caught in the chains (hard to believe...may be a sea story). Best regards...Moab
  3. Beyond incredible! When I saw his shop I couldn’t believe it...Moab
  4. I guess in addition to your other specialties we should call you “hinge man.” Does your honey do list get longer because your wonderful work gives your wife ideas?...Moab
  5. I think by glueing the stanchions when did was the best way to do it. It would have saved me some time and aggrevation. Your build is looking excellent. The photos are very helpful.... I wish I had seen them before I started. Thank you for the build...Moab
  6. I just started building this kit. The plans appear to be excellent however the instruction booklet leaves a bit to be desired when compared to instructions from other manufactures kits. I also emailed them to clarify some details but never received a reply. You're way ahead of me so I look forward to your posts...Moab
  7. Michael; it’s an absolute joy to follow your builds. Your explanations are so easy to understand and the photos display the work perfectly. Thank you for sharing your craft with us...Moab
  8. Michael; agree with all the above. I love the ladder...I've made many of them and for whatever reason none of them looked very good...Moab
  9. I agree with the comments above.....everything is looking excellent. I'm not an expert but your rope looks great...Moab
  10. An incredible example of outstanding craftsmanship......a pleasure to review the photos. Thanx for sharing...Moab
  11. Congratulations on retirement. I’m still working on “perfecting” retirement but I’m 99.999% there. No major recommendations except keep busy and love every day...Moab

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.
