  1. I've done some assembly and paint.........should have something to show tomorrow
  2. whoa......never built one that big! the last large plane I built was a Stuka.........and my brothers and sister destroyed it on me {we were kids} I'm sure there is a lot of interior detail.......if you start one.......ya gotta post it the 606 store { the old hobby shop I used to haunt} had a stratofortress hanging from the rafters...what a huge plane it was!
  3. superb repair and save look'in really sweet! I knew you could do it
  4. you must have a real steady hand to have made that! looks great! are you going to paint the PE?
  5. your almost finished Kevin........must be a great feeling the stun booms are forward but slightly raised........kinda like the 2 o'clock position. I like the way you have your davits......looks good since there are no boats for them. I saw Jerry's ship......I had to do a double take stellar job.......congratz on your milestones!
  6. I see your at it again......off to a darn nice start! that's an awful lot of Pe.......THE BRIDGE LOOKS GREAT
  7. small update here........I have been looking at the bottles with the part in 'em. the engine parts seem unaffected by the brake fluid........the parts for the General though look ready to wash. I will leave them in for one more day.........I may end up painting over the chrome. I do find this rather odd......I haven't seen anything like this before. .....that was last night.........I left the computer without posting today after work, I looked at them again. the part for the General are peeling and bubbled up.......ready to be brushed and cleaned. the small block parts on the other hand, still looked as they did when I put them in. I said the heck with it and set up the cleaning area. I ws surprised to find that the chrome came right off! weird colored plastic........that's for sure on to the next step!
  8. spoke too soon......didn't I?!?!?! nicely done! I like the weathering too........'battle tested'
  9. really nice model Jack l've only built one jet within the last year........I'm happier doing prop planes I'm a fan of the gray camo. I think the decals are suppose to be like that.......stealth. some hobby shops do carry decal sets for these birds, but these are more correct for the aircraft. here is my F15 Eagle. I do have an F14A Tomcat in the stash......future project perhaps you could do a log on that Dauntless .......
  10. yea....I'm nuts.......Prometheus is the latest movie in the franchise {don't mind me } 1st was the USCSS Nostromo....2nd was the Narcissus...3rd was the USS Surlaco.....4th was the USM Auriga.....and 5th was the Betty.......pulled out the collection and took a look.
  11. that was the first one............the third one had wynonna Ryder in it. gotcha
  12. I hit the like button only because the chassis was shown..........
  13. I could tell ya a few stories about Daytona.......party central we made a lot of folks angry at the bumper cars. cool you have history there CDW I see the article mentions the St John's river......interesting story about that river, about the time I moved down there. there was a lot of unrest with the KKK. I don't have all the facts, but in retaliation to what they were doing to the black community, a group of blacks killed the grand wizard's son and took his wife and child, tossing them in the ST John's river. neither survived. I moved down there in 1974...... this carried on until Christmas, when the KKK wanted to have a float in the Deland Christmas parade. against their better judgement, they allowed them, and during the parade, they were pelted with rocks and vegetables, which brought the parade to an abrupt halt! Michael is my best friend, since 1st grade. funny.......I noticed this kid being bullied by a couple of other kids........call'in him four eyes, because he wore glasses. I broke up the taunting with fists blaz'in {can't stand that bull s......}. his parents were like my second parents....they moved to Fla in 1969. it was Michael that convinced me to move down there best five years I ever had ! so many stories are you stalling J..........throwing in your trump card..........your dog to distract us?!?!?! you'd better tell Murphy to take a hike! we want to see this model in all it's splendor.......can't do it with that lout hang'in around! stop.............count to five..........breathe you'll get her fixed up.........and yes, I do what lame a$$ hinge your talking about....I quite agree

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.
