  1. Steven, Everytime I log onto your build I'm always impressed - I also read the written contributions from fellow historians (I'm not haha) but the learning is much fun as well
  2. Marc, Superb work - also learning so much from your build log!!
  3. E.J, nice - close to closing - update. Lower furled sails are indeed "the answer" when adding sails IMO nice work....
  4. Doris, As always there are not enough words in any language that could fully describe the stunning beauty of the art that you create - Creations that also reflect historical accuracy. A superlative feast for all of our eyes - thank you indeed. Sincerely,
  5. Glad you've re-booked your holiday to Tenerife. My wife and I were set to go to Brazil in Early April - all fell through as well - Temporarily frightening times world-wide. On the +side shipyards everywhere must be fully open - I've even just gotten back to mine in between Netflix and HBO haha Regards,
  6. Just catching up - Nice work as always --- Hmmmm Tenerife, certainly beautiful, but from the bus. I used to be in that name only brings one event to my mind 😦 Regards,
  7. Robert, Just catching up - super nice - love the lanterns!! as well.
  8. Patrick - that block looks so perfect !! looking forward to the "how to" - glad your yard is open again along with your mice exterminator on hand. Cheers,
  9. Richard, "Came out not the best" really !! 🤔 (as most builders - we're much too critical of our own work) Brilliant scaling they look SO realistic - and your two sliding cover grooves are also superbly done. Cheers,
  10. Thanks for the comments mates - as well as dropping by. Now moving on Regards,
  11. Thanks mates, Here's one last image (promise) that allows for a better perspective view.
  12. Hi Mates, So at last I finished up the re-install for that lantern that has been sitting around for a while. Here are a few images to completely put this log to rest. That Taffrail is really "sad" I was tempted to pull it off before re- installing the new lantern - but - "done here". Need to finish my Trinidad current build - and then much looking forward to the Viking ship under my table. That one will be something totally new for me to learn about. Will also keep areas unpanelled and open to show some hull and interior sub deck construction details the vikings used. Attempt to anyway -----
  13. Denis, Went back and had a much better look through your log. - Project looks to be super well put together - Also grabbed a chair will follow along as well Regards,
  14. Yes - of course - "we" Mac fanatics keep forgetting that most of the world uses Android devices..🤔

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.
