  1. ahhh cheers Peter, I've renamed the numbered file. Good work
  2. Peter I don't think it is the Danmark, I've been through the six harddrives on this system and the attached is the largest pick I could find. The original is probably on DVD somewhere lol.
  3. Your off and running, looking good! Greetings from Halifax
  4. Thank you for such a great welcoming PeterV unfortunately I was hoping someone might recognize the ship in my profile pic since I can't remember what it is called. I took it with one of my first digital camera's quite a few years ago. It is two shots stitched together and if I could find the original one I could get the name. Cheers from the opposite coast ~
  5. Hey thank you all for the warm welcome much appreciated. Pete, have you got any roots here, I was born over your way but grew up here. If I can assist with your BN in any way let me know. Check out NovaScotia archives and I could give you a list of others...
  6. Matt, send them an email with the pick and be sure and include your mailing address. They will have new ones off to you right away. I just had the same thing with my Syren kit. BF and the bulkheads were all warped... Cheers look forward to following your build ~
  7. Greetings Dan, 1968 or 69 my step father took me to his work at the Downsview military base in Toronto to see a Harrier that had come in. We stood on the tarmac as the pilot put it through it's paces, it was amazing to watch. Welcome, thanks for the memory ~
  8. Hello from Halifax, I've been a stowaway here while working away on my first build, the Bluenose MS 2130. It gave me a lot of satisfaction building a bit of local history and I think I might have caught the bug from you guys in the process. Yes I've got the Syren now sitting on deck, go figure. Hoping to start it the second half of October, when the weather begins to turn and I have some more time on my hands. Great site you have here. Glad to see you don't promote kit's produced by theft. Big thanks for all the help you give Regards, Robin aka Nova ~ http://www.modelshipbuilder.com/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?33665
  9. Agree with Bill and even placing the mast in a vise and using a strip of sandpaper-back and forth works great. Depending on scale a mast might not fit in the proxxon.
  10. Here is a proxxon at Home Depot, scroll down and it should show you available chucks to fit it. The lathe was on sale a week ago I think for 199.00 guess that is over... https://www.homedepot.ca/product/proxxon-micro-woodturning-lathe-db-250/1000800620

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.
