  1. Not surprisingly with earthen-ware druxey. Sorry Pieter couldn't resist it either.
  2. Good to see you back at the workbench Vivian. Congratulations on your marriage. I am very happy for you, you found someone to share your life with, besides us digital chaps.
  3. I think I would pass for seafood on my baguette in the morning So what will you do with the other clog?
  4. Sam ???????? I have the feeling my English knowledge doesn't meet the requirements to understand the meaning behind your words
  5. Zutphen is more for tourist. I prefer Apeldoorn or Deventer. Maybe it's the Westerner in me .... You must miss "hagelslag" .......
  6. electricity for cars use the same crimping method for sockets and plugs, but it will be slightly if not a lot to big. Used it on the reconstruction of a mini's loom, maybe it would do the job as well. Made some joins for multiple cables out of brass tubing that way
  7. Live in Empe, near Voorst ... Zutphen. I see you swapped living quarters ... lovely region where you are
  8. Nice build, Pieter. It has a certain panache. Whilst waiting for glue to set or paint to dry, you can do a Dutch clog dance to kill some time #2 if in doubt, use another clamp ... or two
  9. Steve, nobody told you modelbuilding wasn't a walk in the park!? Or are you, like others on this forum, a glutton for self inflicted punishment/mutilation. Oh, about the learning. You will make the same mistake another time, maybe not all, but some. I know I did ... but then I tend to forget things too ...
  10. Or you are not so easily satisfied ... Like Steve, with his railing now
  11. Beautiful work, both on the brass, as well as on the mast hoops. I like the mold with the little cut to shape the hoop. Very nice jig

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
