  1. Gidday Mark. I agree, I like the Scroll Saw as It demands my full concentration and worries disappear for a time. (That is my "Deep and Meaningful" for the day). Looks like your plan is coming together. Wishing you all the best. Mark.
  2. Gidday Point and another warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I can empathise with your unfinished projects. My garage is a monument to my partially completed projects. In my case life, time and lack of funds get in the way. I wish you all the best in your research for a suitable modelling project. Wishing you all the best. Mark.
  3. Gidday Irishrover. I didn't "just pop in" to complain about your font size. I am in rural Australia and my thoughts on purchasing supplies are irrelevant unless you also reside in Australia. Mark.
  4. Gidday Jo. Have you resolved the issue with frame 16? If not I would be interested, if possible, to see the plans. Sometimes the instructions leave a lot to be desired and can create confusion and uncertainty. Fortunately you have found the right site for advice and support. Wishing you all the best. Mark.
  5. Gidday Empathry and another warm welcome from the Land Downunder. Looking forward to seeing some of you fleet. All the best with your endeavours. Mark.
  6. Gidday Irishrover. Could you please adjust your font size. I feel like I'm being screamed at. Thanks. Mark.
  7. Gidday Steve and welcome aboard. I'm also in Victoria although a fair way from Melbourne, which is how I like it. You certainly have found the right site for the sharing of knowledge and expertise. I wish you all the best in your endeavours. Mark.
  8. Gidday OC. Looking good Pity about the Topgallant. As long as we learn something from our mistakes it is not a complete waste of time. I wish you and your family all the best. Mark.
  9. Gidday Pat. She is looking very tidy and I like the simplicity of the jig. Is there a description of the various woods in the parts list. Wishing you all the best. Mark.
  10. Gidday Pat and a warm welcome from a neighbor across the ditch. I also have a somewhat cluttered workspace and somehow things / projects generally work out. You have chosen a fine ship. I am sure she will present immense satisfaction and probably some frustration. There is a wealth of knowledge here and most members freely share there expertise. Wishing you all the best in your endeavours, no pun intended. Mark.
  11. Gidday Sodburybungy and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I also spend a great deal of time thinking and staring(unfortunately this is not confined to modelling). As you have been looking around for a couple of weeks I am sure you will have found the wealth of knowledge and support here. When and if you become stuck or are unsure please reach out. I have always believed that we should ask questions to gain knowledge or clarify issues. In this long winded rant all I am saying is welcome aboard. All the best with your build. Mark.
  12. Travelin' Man. Ricky Nelson.
  13. Gidday Ekis and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. You have found a fantastic site that is full of knowledge and support. I encourage you to ask questions as and when you encounter a problem. Your choice of model is very interesting. I wish you all the best in your build. Mark.
  14. Gidday Ronko and a warm welcome from the Land Dowunder. I agree re the quality of kits. Long gone are the days of timber with a printed pattern to cut out with a fretsaw. You have certainly found the right site for modelling expertise and support. Wishing you all the best with 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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
