  1. What fun to live in Sydney at the moment. The smoke haze from the nearby bushfires has reached health threatening proportions. We are told that when the Air Quality Index reaches 200, the air quality is 'Hazardous'. The AQI around our way at the moment is sitting around 2270! At least we only have the smoke and not the devastating fires that go with it!! The following photos were taken from our front verandah this morning. John
  2. Peter, keep at it, mate - all this experimenting and false starts can only lead to greater expertise and knowledge of sailmaking. John
  3. Hello, and a warm welcome to MSW from 'Down Under'. John
  4. Very impressive, Kevin - beautiful work, as usual. I like the idea of the workshop Christmas tree! John
  5. Dan, I've somehow missed your last few updates. She's looking really first class, mate! John
  6. As a kid I was fascinated by the storey of the excavation of the Sutton Hoo burial (my dad was interested in archaeology and I used to read his books). How could anyone excavate a ship by looking for the 'shadow' of the long rotted away planks in the sand? That was a brilliant piece of field work! John
  7. There are dozens (maybe hundreds) of these available on eBay. All from China; all stupidly cheap. Probably pirated and undoubtedly of very poor quality. My advice would be to stay well away and spend your money on a kit from a reputable retailer. John
  8. Stack of what, Denis? That funnel top looks first class, Kevin! John
  9. A warm welcome to MSW from 'Down Under'. John
  10. Hello Mike, and a warm welcome to the forum from 'Down Under'. 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.
