  1. And launched already! Fair winds on your new project, Caroline.
  2. Congratulations on a long but ultimately successful project, Caroline! Looks great. And you are already onto the next one???
  3. I have to agree with wefalck: the whole model looks terrific, but he loose lay of the line strikes my eye immediately in those photos. I use cotton to spin my line, and the result is not stiff at all. The lay is at about 45 degrees.
  4. It is a large, heavy volume and is a terrific bargain. It must have been heavily subsidized to be sold at the price point it is.
  5. It's an interesting concept, masa. However, would this self-destruct in time as the coefficients of expansion/contraction of metal and wood are dissimilar, plus the effects of varying humidity on wood?
  6. What a lovely, atmospheric model, Javier! Congratulations on completing yet another miniature masterpiece.
  7. Thanks for the tutorial on turning faux miniature screws, Michael. That spalted wood looks great! Also, the burgundy cushions look pretty nice as well.

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.
