  1. Jesse, I've used this child's balloon blow-up hand pump for years to dust my models. You can pump it strong or gentle with no trouble. I bought it years ago to blow up my kids balloons.
  2. I just received new deadeyes from Amati and they are very high quality. I shall start rigging ASAP
  3. I'm starting to plan to fabricate deadeyes. I discovered the holes in my "new" deadeyes are so small I can't get a decent size line through them without drilling them out. Next, I realized that the new deadeyes have no depth. They are half the thickness of some old deadeyes I have. I'm going to have to purchase different deadeyes since I can't work with theses. Oh well?
  4. Installing one simple stay will takes several hours since I have to wait while the glue dries at one end then do the other end. then Wait until that glue dries, then trim the excess rigging.

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.
