  1. The examples (e.g. barrels, pail, rope, etc.) look good but not sure how the tooling relates...Moab
  2. B.E. What an extraordinary model! Thank you for your after-thoughts on the model...Moab
  3. Dave; As always I keep learning about new jigs, etc. Great idea! Thank you for posting...Moab
  4. I built one of their smaller river boat kits and was very pleased. The wood and laser cutting were the best I've ever used. The non-english instructions were very good...Moab
  5. Chris; thank you for this in-process review. Kit looks very, very interesting. Look forward to seeing its progress...Moab
  6. This really looks great! I know nothing about motors but does “frequency control” mean variable control? What was the total cost of the parts?...Moab
  7. Never get a chance to say this too often....to all my brothers WELCOME HOME...Moab
  8. Another airbrush newbe question. In general (whatever that means) how long does it take the paint to dry before adding another coat? For example if I'm painting a large surface like a hull and using light coats (again, whatever that means) how long should I wait before recoating...Moab
  9. I too have a nail pusher and it take "awhile" to get the feel of getting it right. Pilot holes REALLY help...Moab
  10. It all depends on your needs. My small leds are perfect for my small Preac sanding box and even better to place on the deck just a few inches from where I'm working.I do have much larger leds for general lighting...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.
