  1. Thanx for the explanation Danny. Did your wrist hurt after making the 120 cuts for the 12 wheels? Thanx again...Moab
  2. I just started following your build and the photos and explanations are “incredibly” helpful. I’ve gotten many good ideas and methods of working. Thank you...Moab
  3. I recently built a Woody Joe kit. The laser cutting was the best I’ve seen. Although it was an easy build it may be a problem for someone new to modeling since there are no plans and the instructions are in “Japanese.” The illustrations in the instructions are excellent and easy to follow. The wood was excellent!...Moab
  4. Wow Danny! The wheels and everything else look great. Your skill and patience are over the top. I look forward to the article about the circle cutter. I have one and have not had any good results. I'll keep you in my thoughts...Moab
  5. I just started following your build and it’s amazing. Thank you for the great photos and explanations...Moab
  6. I totally agree with the comments above. The only reason I would consider buying it is because it would force me to purchase their shoulder plane and although I love tools it’s way too expensive. Also, my wife would destroy me when the credit card bill arrived...Moab
  7. Awesome project and result...Moab
  8. Wonderful photos. Thank you for sharing...Moab
  9. Can’t be another birthday. Considering the tools you already have you must be in heaven...Moab
  10. I’ve used FedEx office many times with great success and excellent accuracy. I’m not sure about the prices but I “think” a 20” x 30” print might cost about $30. They also offer sizes larger than that. $30 may be expensive but for me the benefits are substantial...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.
