  1. Nice I would love to do them in 1/48. Great work at such a little scale. My fingers dont work at that level
  2. Hello Everyone, Well first off my name is Steve and have recently moved from sunny Sydney, Australia to Melbourne, Australia after retiring from my 15 year military. As a kid like most of us here started at an early age modelling plastic kits. From there the hobby grew then I hit that special time of our lives when we discover 1. Women and 2. alcohol and not in any particular order. The hobby took a back seat for probably 20 years with work, wife, life and kids taking up the time. After being injured and being permanently retired with a full military pension I was left with a lot of spare time so I jumped back into modelling to keep my mind sharp and the motor skills going plus its one thing I can still do comfortably. I got back into the plastic kits for a while then progressed to 1/3 and 1/4 scale gliders and model ships. I have completed a number of model ship kits and am ready to get stuck into some scratch building now. I look forward to chatting with you all in the forums. Steve

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.
