  1. happy Birthday my friend!  I hope your day was good and spent the way you wanted to ;)  

  2. Nice attention to the little fiddly bits (details). Looking great.
  3. Great progress on your Syren. You definitely had some hurdles to overcome with regards to the inferior materials you had to start with. Keep up the good work.
  4. Back after a lengthy "burned out" period. Started the Model Shipways build back in 2013. Progress to date. Since then I've moved to a new dry dock and started building again.
  5. Nice start on one of my favorite ships. Very clear pics. Great lighting.
  6. 35). That small drill bits that break off in a hole would 'magically' back themselves out of said hole.
  7. Sarah, definitely one of my favorite groups also. Very talented and creative group of musicians/singers. "Someone That I Used to Know" with everyone on one guitar is incredible. Can't get enough of that video.
  8. Well, actually, I just discovered "My worst experience". Looking at the remaining exterior planking to be done on my TRITON cross section, I realised I was short one row of plankining on the starboard side versus the port side. AWWWWWWGH!!! I will have to remove the wales and all of that beautiful anchor stock planking on starboard to fix the error. No worries, the pain from hitting my head on the wall has subsided and I'm ready to fix my mistake.
  9. You will definitely enjoy having a Byrnes saw in your shop. I certainly use and enjoy mine a lot. By the way, last months issue of the MSB Journal had an article regarding the Byrnes Table Saw. Here's the link. http://modelshipbuilder.com/e107_images/custom/The-MSB-Journal/msbjournal-march-2013.pdf

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.
