  1. “Are you certain these don't link to different comments? If the same user "likes" multiple posts (I typically see this when someone is getting caught up on a long or post) or made multiple comments in a thread (less common) then you will get multiple alerts that are worded exactly the same (aside from potentially different time stamps)“ this sounds like an explanation
  2. Have 2 this morning that are word for word identical, as they always are.
  3. “As I'm genetically unable to simply build a kit as provided, I'm trying to build her as USS Thatcher DD-514, as she appeared” i have the opposite problem. I have trouble building a plastic model as intended.
  4. Is it just my browser or does every one get multiple repeats of the same “notification”? This morning the same “duanelaker....” notification shows up 8 times. I seldom get just 1 notification from one response. Very frequently 2 or more. just curious Ron Gove
  5. Awesome work at that show. I was particularly impressed by the dioramas.
  6. The work bench is finished. Now I’m working on the cooling tank.
  7. ”Your work is a great inspiration for me. Looking forward to your build log entries. Keep up the good work. ” thanks for the nice comment John. I appreciate it very much. Ron
  8. Almost finished the tryworks. Waiting for the paint to dry on the doors.
  9. I’m not sure if I like this base or not. I may end up just getting a regular wood one from Model Expo. The map is a strip from an old whaling map showing where to find various species.
  10. Inserting the tryworks pots is a bit of a challenge. They are wider in the middle than at the top lip. So one cannot simply cut a hole and drop them in. The photos show my solution.
  11. I am constructing the tryworks now. The bricks are an embossed sheet of HO scale bricks. One gets the mortar lines by painting with a white or grey and then wiping the paint off. A residue remains in the joints and gives a pretty good look.
  12. Thanks. I had to toss 2 tries before I got this one. I thought about leaving the door open and doing some inside detail, but it was hard enough getting the outside to fit.

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.
