  1. You didn't all that coppering in one day? Amazingly accurate! I have tried coppering so far only once, and that (HM Schooner Pickle) ended -also for other reasons- in the waste bin. So I decided to paint my Jalouse white...
  2. Hi Tom, I am under the same impression. Jalouse is a beautiful ship and really worth building. The hull of your model looks very good and I am curious on your progressing. I was also looking for a build log and finally arrived at this friendly forum (signed up only last Friday). Similar to you, I built the Ballahoo and bought the Jalouse thereafter. I started with the kit last year late in September and I am currently working on the deck fittings. I will probably start a build log shortly, however I began taking pictures only after first and second plankings were completed. I guess it will be very nice and interesting to compare our kits and exchange hints (no competition intended). Take care! Uwe
  3. Ok, Here is my first build log. I started with Cruiser in spring 2009 and completed it in autumn 2010. It was the first wooden model after some 18 to 20 years. There were certainly some "problems" during the build but I don't remember them anymore. Cruiser is still on the cupboard, and dust is removed (from time to time when instructed) Uwe
  4. Dear all, Thanks for the friendly welcome posts! And thanks for the lesson on Nanometers, Dziadeczek 🙂. Since this is a marine forum I thought it appropriate to indicate the bearing and distance in nautical miles (nm)... 😉 But seriously, from Hamburg it takes about 1 hour by car or train. As for build logs I will shortly reply on that
  5. Hi Chris, I didn't know "Moin, moin" is known in South Carolina! If I posted pictures of my few completed ships where should place them? I could not find the tag for completed kits. Uwe

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.
