  1. Gidday Jodie and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. You have joined a site, which I believe, has the most knowledgeable and technically savvy people of any site. Please feel free to ask questions when and if you get stuck or come to a point where you are unsure of how to proceed. I wish you all the best in your endeavours. Mark.
  2. Gidday Ronald and another warm welcome from the Land Downunder. As you have said, life does have a habit of getting in the way. Good to see you have picked up the model again. I wish you all the best in your endeavours. Mark.
  3. Blue Jean Bop. Gene Vincent and His Bluecaps.
  4. Gidday John and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I wish you all the best in your endeavours. Mark.
  5. Gidday all. I usually read the instructions and accompanying photos, sometimes this leads to more confusion, as I like to get an overall idea of the build process. I do bounce around a bit as mark says in Post#2 building deck furniture or assembling masts etc. while waiting for things to dry. Very interesting subject and I am looking forward to others input. Wishing you all the best. Mark.
  6. Gidday Salty Dog. I am liking this PE. The build looks like it is progressing well. By the way a 1968 Parisienne, very much like the U.S. Bonneville. Wishing you all the best in your endeavours. Mark.
  7. Gidday Kikatinalong. Welcome from a cold and wet Bairnsdale Victoria. Feeling daunted or unsure of where to start are not uncommon feelings when building a kit. A couple of pieces of friendly advice, Search in the build logs for your kit or ship, your exact kit may not be in the logs but the same ship may be. Read and reread the instructions to gain an understanding of the various kit pieces and the assembly process. Dry fit as much as possible as it is easier to rectify any kit deficiencies dry than when glued in place. Ask as many questions as you need to. I could go on and on and on but I think I have said enough to get you started. I wish you all the best in your endeavours, Mark.

  9. Congratulations Danny on a well deserved win. Maintain your standards and more accolades will follow. Wishing you all the best in your endeavours. Mark.
  10. Gidday Jim and another warm welcome from the Land Downunder. You certainly appear to have the experience needed to enjoy this fascinating hobby. I advise everyone to search the build logs, not only for their particular kit as I find the logs educational and a great read. You may find an alternative method or approach to a build. Personally I have corrected some bad habits I picked up along the way by finding methods that suit me, habits in modelling not life generally. Once again welcome and I am looking forward to your build. Mark.
  11. Sweet Sweet Love. Russel Morris.
  12. Gidday Raymond. I would be interested in your opinion of Mr Marquardts book. I hope there is enough information to facilitate a scratch build or assist in determining if the Occre kit is satisfactory. Wishing you all the best in your endeavours. Mark.
  13. Gidday Johnathas and another warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I would advise you to search the build logs for your kit. You may find solutions and advice for most problems you encounter. Dry fit the parts and read and reread the instructions to gain familiarity with parts and the assembly process. Please feel free to pose questions. Looking forward to your build. Mark.

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.
