  1. Gidday Norway and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I am looking forward to your progress with the Pickle. I wish you al the best in your endeavours. Mark.
  2. Man We Had a Party. Wanda Jackson.
  3. Close But No Cigar. Weird Al Yankovic.
  4. Living Loving Maid (She's Just a Woman). Led Zeppelin.
  5. Gidday Jeffrey D and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I do not wish to dissuade you from this extremely rewarding and challenging pastime but these kits are cheap for a reason. The quality is abysmal and they are usually pirated. I believe the only thing you will learn from these kits is frustration and regret. In my opinion you are far better off saving your money and searching for a beginners kit in the build logs. I wish you only the best in your search. Mark.
  6. Rockin' With My Baby. Malcolm Yelvington.
  7. Gidday Sunsanvil and a warm welcome from the Land Downnunder. In answer to your question re the "the one to get". I find this question purely subjective as one person may prefer aspects of a kit that another abhors. Several factors will influence any decision to purchase a kit. Among these are price, the modelmakers ability, time, a dedicated building area, and commitment. I would suggest you search the build logs. This may assist in your decision. These are my personal views and I am sure others will have varying opinions. I do not wish to deter you in any way and wish you all the best in your search. Mark.
  8. Gidday Richard and another warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I am looking forward to your build log. I wish you all the best in your endeavours. Mark.
  9. Things Can Only Get Better. D:Ream.
  10. Gidday Lukas and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. If I may I would like to offer a couple of pieces of friendly advice. I feel I may be a little late with the first piece, If you can, dry fit as much as possible, problems are easier to rectify when things are not glued up. Search the build logs for your kit or similar. The search results are a good way of seeing the pitfalls and practical solutions to problems you may encounter. Finally, and above all else - Enjoy yourself. I wish you all the best in your endeavours. Mark.
  11. I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone. Elvis Presley.
  12. Two Faces Have I. Lou Christie.
  13. Gidday JCT. Something to be proud of. I am looking forward to your next build. I wish you all the best in your endeavours. Mark.
  14. Gidday Cozzy and another warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I can only second Mr Coyles suggestion in post # 3. Also the build logs section may offer some insight into your kit or similar. Good luck in your search. 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.
