  1. Do you wear hearing aids by any chance or need to get them? I've needed them for years, and am finally going to get them (invisible, in-ear canal). Apparently, they can also be configured to receive input from the TV... Alan
  2. Me too. That looked horrifying. Beautiful model, aviaamator! Alan
  3. Should still be salvageable? Paint thinner?
  4. I live "close" to Mountain Home and love watching the flights come in. I'm also able to see a lot of A-10's since the National Guard base is also close by. Alan
  5. Voila! That would be perfect for decal paper, once you did test prints on "normal" paper. If memory serves, I purchased a couple of sheets from my local hobby store (the sheets came in white or clear), and I was able to print them with my inkjet printer. It seems like a follow-up protective coating just needed to be applied afterwards so the ink didn't run. Alan
  6. Lou, maybe try your hand at printing your own decals? I remember doing this years ago, and it was pretty easy. Alan
  7. The vids work for me, and are a lot of fun to watch! Popeye, maybe use a different movie player? Alan
  8. I agree with Mustafa. It really is fun to view the updates to your log, Dirk; especially the close-ups of the metalwork. I'd bet a lot of ppl would love to see you produce a metalworking tutorial, if you ever had an inkling in putting something together.. Alan
  9. I'm in the same "boat". I'm not fond of this aging thing. Glass lenses then? Sigh... ok... Alan
  10. I think natural looks best. Maybe with a wash applied? That would be an interesting experiment. Alan
  11. I've noticed a lot of art prints at exhibitions now have clear acrylic coatings "painted" on, so the piece looks like it was painted rather than printed. Would that add another layer of authenticity to the friezes, if the clear acrylic was painted over the shapes with a very small, fine brush? Alan

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.
