  1. Most small ships had no "facilities" at all - even for officers. In the small sailing ships of the Australian coast, going to the toilet was known as "doing a lee sider". John
  2. Hello, and a warm welcome to the forum from 'Down Under'. I'm sorry for the loss and pain you feel. John

  7. I had the great pleasure and privilege of knowing Danny personally, but had lost touch with him recently. As we would say over here, "He'd give you the shirt off his back". Danny's passing is a very sad loss to all who knew him, to our forum and to the model making world at large. John

  9. That's one whale boat that will stand out in a crowd, Mario! The internal colour would certainly make it easier to see at sea. John
  10. Hello and a warm welcome to MSW from 'Down Under'. John
  11. Justin is correct on this. As shrouds were usually made up with cable laid rope, you just need to remember that the tail of the shroud should be on the right when the shroud is turned in. John
  12. She looks pretty finished to me, mate! that's been quite a ride watching the evolution of this beautiful model. John

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.
