  1. Chris...my very thoughts John.... Have several friends down under from my airplane days..... Cheers
  2. Hello modelers.. I’ve recently joined this elite group and have been browsing around for the last several days to become familiar with the site. To say the least, I’m amazed ! To introduce myself, my name is Chuck and I live in SE Pennsylvania . As the story goes, I’ve been into models for years but mostly aviation stuff. Started into real aviation very early in life and continued till retirement n 2010, but still working at the local airport for fun. Very normal and boring to date. Well, my life change a few weeks ago, with a major medical event. No more flying for me! But the really interesting part of the story is yet to come. My Brother John pulled up roots, purchase 7 acres in Maine, built a house and moved. Most people move to warmer climate, but not John. For years, he and his wife have boarded the schooner Stephen Taber out of Rockland, ME, presenting classes to fellow travelers on how to take pictures of light houses. My great idea was to build a model of the ST as a house warming gift. The closest kit I came across is the Smuggler from Blue Jacket. Now it just so happens that the Blue Jacket company is very close to where my Brother now lives. How cool is that!! Kit was purchased a couple of weeks age and now working on the hull. As soon as I learn how to post pictures, I’ll do so as soon as I learn how to start a blog. For now, happy modeling to all. Chuck

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.
