  1. There's another old one I recalled today, haven't heard it for years but it's a true classic. I was walking in the bush, enjoying the serenity etc when I noticed my shadow was quite long and it was time to head back, hence the old saying among the bushies "The shadow's gettin long" Meaning time to knock off
  2. Or the aussie classic "no wuckas" being a derivation of "no wuckin furries" and I'm sure we're all capable of working that little gem out
  3. Enough with the negative waves Moriarty
  4. Ladies and gentlemen take my advice, pull down your pants and slide on the ice!
  5. I wonder, SHF has the original reproduction boat (Child of Bounty) that did the first re-enactment voyage, I think there have been three now. That would be interesting to have on display
  6. Mate that's going to look great and you won't have any trouble with months attacking the sails
  7. I put it to you that the item forward of the engine is in fact a gen set therefore the plumbing to the stern is its exhaust.
  8. You can't have exhaust below the water line therefore you can't have cooling system pick up beside exhaust.
  9. I was thinking perhaps exhaust, cooling water outlet and bilge pump outlet
  10. My father once asked me where I got my skills from because they didn't come from him, I think I said something like life
  11. Jim, the model makers bench is one of the first places I go when I visit, I'm thinking i'm due for another visit soon too
  12. Keith when I build my next full size wooden boat can you do the finish for me?
  13. Keith, I was thinking french polish when you mentioned the cloth, wadding etc. It's the way they do it but I have no idea where the pumice stone comes into it.

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.
