  1. Hi Oliver feel free to add anything you would like, but may I suggest you start a log of your own, we would all be interested in seeing your Aglis
  2. Thanks Denis...your right there any longer and I think it really would have been petrified wood! I'll definitely be watching your builds, have you started the second log yet?
  3. Thanks Tom...that's a good question, I still have the Pinta to complete, Hummmmm
  4. Thank you sir and thanks for following along
  5. Thanks much Ed, glad you enjoyed the build, was great to have you support
  6. A couple shots of the ratlines in process nothing to exciting just a bunch of cow and clove hitches And for the moment you've all been waiting for... my I present for your viewing enjoyment... JUMBO THE CLIPPER... I must say for all trouble early on I think this turned out to be a fairly good looking model, . I'm happy with the overall look and glad I decided to change the rigging, both the style and the dimensions. Though I will say I don't think I'll be looking for any more 50+ year old kits anytime soon! I want to thank all of you who have followed along and taken the time to hit the like button and comment. A special thanks to Popeye for joining me in a dual build, was fun and I hope you all enjoyed it as much as me, and also for poking me to get the build started in the first place, thanks my friend. This will be it for me for a while, RV season is starting up and the road calls.
  7. Whatever the admiral finds on sale...fixed income ya know Port side ratlines are done and stbd side about 1/3 of the way up, shouldn't be long now
  8. I've found that's usually on the way out before you get there...I would of thought two Jumbos would be enough for you while I was building the Hannah a friend kept hinting around that he would like to have it...well they're getting Jumbo
  9. I been on eggshells for the last month I keep tellin' she'll be incarcerated for elder abuse (she's 3 yrs my junior) Nice job on the boom collars the portalls look good too I'm pushin to get Jumbo done this week, as I said early on it's gonna be gifted and I'd like to do that Saturday
  10. Ditto my friend...but at 68 I slam mine down, don't want to run otta time

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.
