  1. Three guys sitting on a park bench, One says " windy today", next one says, "no I think its Thursday", Third one says, "yeah, me to lets go get a beer".
  2. An old man was out fishing one day when he heard a voice say " Kiss me and I will turn into a beautiful woman" Looking around the old guy spots a frog on the creek bank. Picking it up, he puts the frog into his shirt pocket. and again, the frog says. "Didn't you hear me? Kiss me and I will turn into a beautiful woman, who will do your every bidding" The old fellow looks at the frog and says. " at my age, I would rather have a talking frog."
  3. Do ya know the difference between a fairy tale and a sea story? Well... A fairy tale starts with "Once upon a time" And as Sea story starts with "Now this is no S###!"
  4. I thought about building a ship in a bottle, there wasn't room for both, me and the ship!
  5. In Arizona they call it "Cowboy Cool aid"
  6. As they say at the dog sled races, If you are not the "lead Dog" the scenery never changes.
  7. Boogie Woogie Bugle boy (of Company Andrew Sisters.
  8. Count me in. Have one on the shelf waiting to go on the ways. Mind if I pull up bar stool and watch and learn?
  9. Loggin in from Las Vegas, Nv. A little warm here, been that way for couple of weeks. But like I told an old friend in the Seattle Area, " don't be concerned, it will warm up later" Currently 109, Mostly overcast, wind from the SSW @ 11 kts. Glass at 29.81. Got down to 91 this morning. I know, quit complaining, Its the end of June and In Las Vegas, I was expecting maybe a little frost?
  10. Afternoon (here) all, I don't know what is in the budget, but for what its worth, I have been considering a couple of inexpensive base cabinets from "Home Depot" and using a solid core paint grade door as a top. The base cabinets have doors and drawers, set far enough apart, one would have a knee space, and the ends of the door might be a good place to mount a vice. Base cabinets are usually about 24 inches deep and I think about 32" inches high. I think one could mount power tools, ie. drill press, sander, etc. to the solid core door. The doors are made in a variety of widths, and usually 6'8'' tall. Just thinking
  11. Not a puritan village, just so poor, no one had a dime.
  12. I am working on the same model. Same Co. Some of the instructions included are a little hard to understand. Probably as a result of translation. So. having said that one book that, as far as I know, that might be of great help. Absolutely great book by John McKay, The Armed Transport Bounty. It has been of a great help to me. Beautifully drawn, Great Detail. Bought mine at Amazon.com hope it helps. Thanks Ted
  13. I'm late in making a comment as well. I have been watching along, and am quite impressed. I have one on the shelf and am very interested in the process. She is beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Hope I am able to do as well when I get a "roundtuit" Thanks
  14. Greetings, A suggestion for another "game" in perhaps Shore Leave, How about funny, silly, or otherwise creative auto phone answering machine messages?? Just thinking.

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.
