  1. You got red and blue on your engine...throw in a little white and do a patriotic theme Here's a shot of a grill insert I did for a friend of my oldest son...mounted in a JK Wrangler
  2. Excerpt from 1962 NHRA rules...Bumpers: Bumpers are not required; however, in lieu of rear bumper, a suitable (permanently attached) push-bar must be installed on the rear of the car.
  3. Very nice Paul...something really different, great paint work too
  4. Well...here we are, almost 3 months since I visited the Hanna...I was busy with some non-ship builds, sometimes I need a bit of a break...but this build will resume, so today's progress The mast hole are drilled and the dowels cut to length and teh deck grates have been assembled and cut to rough shape, they all still need to be finish sanded nothing is attached just placed to check sizes
  5. I see your conundrum...definitely like the black and white stripes...is there a shot of the other side? wondering if the strips continue around like a barber pole? think I'd be tempted to give it a shot...Tamiya makes some really sweet tape that would allow you to pull it off...no matter what you decide I'm sure it will be an exceptional example
  6. Hi CD...you can always resort to a liquid mask if necessary, I've used em in the past with good results, with that said I don't think your camo job looks bad?
  7. Sometimes I miss the old days, other days, not so much. Roger that...Mickey Thompson even did Pontiac hemi’s for awhile...I think only like 6 motors were ever converted , Lew Arrington ran one in the og 65 Brutus GTO
  8. The 2.2? could look like this ...I got an old Blue Flame from a 53 Vette I thinking of doing this to
  9. THX Ron THX Mark...I agree...toyed with the idea of rigging a trapeze but just wanted to keep it simple Not at all sure Denis, I know I'm staying away from my stash for awhile, I do need to get an inventory though...this little bird was buried under multiple layers, I've no idea what I have...a hiatus may be in my immediate future as we are opening the RV in a couple weeks, but we'll have to see I do want to say thanks again to all that have followed and supported along the way much appreciated my friends

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.
