  1. Your resourcefulness knows no bounds Phil. Nicely done sir.
  2. You are doing a stellar job mate, well done.
  3. I just so enjoy dropping by and seeing your progress Phil. Nicely done sir.
  4. Once again your attention to detail has awed me. The wire solution was just amazing, reallythinking outside of the box there (forgive the pun). I am sure that idea will be "borrowed" and implemented on a number of builds here, mine included. A very impressive build Graham and a joy to read and follow. Mark
  5. I prefer your one Y.T., the "loop" around the deadeye is not so clunky and out of scale as is the one on the kit part. Very nice job sir.
  6. Understatement of the century right there!
  7. Eric, Thank you for dropping by and for your concern. Luckily for us we live on a 10 acre lot in an old log cabin on the very top of a hill overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains. The reno we are doing has been planned for a long time as part of the bigger project to convert our cabin into a useable home. We are 3 years into it now and can see the end in sight. We had purchased all the necessary supplies for this particular part of the project well before the proverbial s*** hit the fan. It is nice and secluded up here and we like to keep to ourselves anyway so all is good. As far as the Vic goes she will be seeing me again very soon and I shall post my progress sir. Mark
  8. I had made a jig for that purpose, will have to see if I can find the link here, I posted it in the appropoate section on the forum. Yes, you can make them yourself. I bought the medium sized ones for my scale model. Just remove one of the "ears" from another clip and place it inside the jaws of the one you will be using. It makes for great plank holder thingys If you study the images on any build that has them you will see how simple they are to fabricate.
  9. Yes, I meant over soak.... fat fingered that one didn't I. My thermos is a big old one from my army days, I don't think they make them like that anymore. I did test soaks on the planks I used and found that about 8 minutes was ideal for the wood. If your time works for you that is obviously fine sir, just wanted to point it out is all.
  10. Ha ha, I was not expecting you to sir but once everything blows over we can revisit that maybe?
  11. I haven't seen her for a while, very well done sir. She looks great. I have some nice wood here in my wood shop if you want to come look 😂😉

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.
