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

  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Nice start on one of my favorite ships. Very clear pics. Great lighting.
  5. Dan, Matrim and Ron, thank you for confirming I'm doing right by redoing the planking. I've got most of the old planks removed and am starting on the new ones. I feel better about my decision now. And the bumps on my head are healing very well.

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.
