  1. If interested here is another good model site https://www.oldmodelkits.com/. I've brought a couple model planes from him.
  2. Lancaster PA 6:55PM 95 Degrees feels like 103.
  3. This article was in our local paper.http://lancasteronline.com/news/local/year-old-mystery-solved-local-namesake-uss-conestoga-lost-in/article_9f1fd550-f1d3-11e5-9699-3fafcaf625dc.html Was named after the Conestoga Wagon, which was built around Lancaster PA.
  4. Small boats on the upper Chesapeke Bay growing up. 22 day trip from Seattle WA to Inchon, S Korea on the USNS Marine Lynx in 1955.
  5. Might want to check out this site http://englishrussia.com/2014/08/23/wooden-shipbuilding-is-still-alive/

  7. Thought this site interesting http://englishrussia.com/2014/02/12/early-1900s-russian-fleet/
  8. Home Depot or Lowes have a good choice of dowels. Try AC Moore or Michaels if any are near you.
  9. Seems like developers are the same all over the world. Just think of their own pocketbook. Signed the petition.
  10. Mine is just a contraction of my name, Stanley Williams
  11. Here is what I found: During the heyday of this hull member, these beams were usually fitted in pairs, one on either side of the ship, and were often embellished on their outer ends with carvings of lion or cat heads. Although not documented, these decorations are thought to have been the source of the name. From Wisegeek.com
  12. What I think is a shame, when you ask people what the 6th of June is, most have no idea. The sad part is, in a few years most of the people that served in WW-II will be gone.
  13. Not a poem but, still within the theme. For my daughter who spent 20 years in the US Navy. She passed away in 2007. U.S. Navy Hymn LyricsEternal Father, strong to save, Whose arm hath bound the restless wave, Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep Its own appointed limits keep; Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee, For those in peril on the sea! O Christ! Whose voice the waters heard And hushed their raging at Thy word, Who walked'st on the foaming deep, And calm amidst its rage didst sleep; Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee, For those in peril on the sea! Most Holy Spirit! Who didst brood Upon the chaos dark and rude, And bid its angry tumult cease, And give, for wild confusion, peace; Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee, For those in peril on the sea! O Trinity of love and power! Our brethren shield in danger's hour; From rock and tempest, fire and foe, Protect them wheresoe'er they go; Thus evermore shall rise to Thee Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

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.
