  1. Hi Jim Lad. Sorry to trouble you and I hope this is not infringing on protocol. However I recently purchased a bow section model of HMS Victory from Modelers Central in Australia, they say it has been posted to me, when I track the order using the tracking number they gave me the last entry is Sydney airport, on the 29 April at 1315. Two questions, do you know if Modelers Central is genuine, and do you know if flights are delayed at Sydney? Kind Regards Martin.

      Better to contact people by private message, mate, but never mind.


      Yes, Modellers Central is a genuine and long established outfit - should be no problems as far as they are concerned.  Now your problems start; we are in almost complete international lockdown with our borders closed.  There are very few flights (if any) currently leaving Australia.  When I think about it, Modellers Central should probably have warmed you about that when you ordered - maybe they didn't think about it.

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.
