  1. Dirk, I'm with Augie & Mark about taking a timeout to think about it. In the end, do what will make you happy every time you see your build when it's with your father--don't settle for anything that will make you think harrumph every time you see the ship! Cheers, Jay
  2. Bob, your planking looks great and that's an excellent tip for planking the around the ports--thanks for sharing! Cheers, Jay
  3. Mike, your latest go with the fashion pieces look excellent! Also thanks for sharing your experiences with these along with how you solved getting them to look right--very much appreciated! Cheers, Jay

  12. Wow, Thanasis your work is absolutely superb and I love your paint job--it's stunning! Cheers, Jay
  13. Ah, that 3 hr soak time makes sense and a lot easier to shape the workpiece. Cheers, Jay
  14. Pete, the cockpit and combing really look fantastic! Was the 3 hours for the combing so that it could dry or did you need to just bend a bit at a time? I think shaping those combings are tricky as can be and yours looks great! Cheers, Jay

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.
