  1. Hello Vesihiisi and a warm welcome to MSW from 'Down Under'. John
  2. Thank you for your photo essay on the re-birthing of a book. I've always been fascinated by old books and their preservation - perhaps because in her younger days my mum worked as a bookbinder at the City of Sydney Library. Can I ask what adhesive is used to hold books together - they always seem capable of taking enormous punishment? John

  6. Hello Dana, and a warm welcome to the forum from 'Down Under'. The usual way on solid hulls is to cut a rabbet to receive the bulwarks. John
  7. Hello, and a warm welcome to the forum from 'Down Under'.! John
  8. They'd have to convene a working party of a sub committee to consider something like that, Mark. John
  9. Thanks for the encouragement, Folks. No way out of the meeting that I can see - it's a case of, "Oh, John, we just need to have a quick chat about ……….." John
  10. Cheers, mate. We just like to check every now and then as sometimes people can get a bit over enthusiastic about downloading interesting information. 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.
