  1. Hi Mark-oh boy....I swear it’s not my fault. I place the blame solely on the clean-up crew. They’re obviously not up to the task. I mean, how hard is it to pick up some popcorn😏? Hehehe. Hi Carl - I’ll take your word for it (about the scale, I mean). I seem to recall that Igor did something similar in a bottle a while back. Now that was tiny as well. Enjoy the rest of your weekends, folks! Cheers Patrick
  2. Hi Marcus It’s great to see you’re starting on your new beauties to add to your Maritime Museum. I’m in! Cheers Patrick
  3. Thanks Steve. I struggle to think what the scale would be (I failed maths at school!). All I know is that it’s freaking teeny tiny😀. Thanks for your compliments. Have a a great weekend. Cheers. Patrick
  4. Thanks Denis I hear what you say about the macro-setting. I’m like a kid in a candy-shop now. I’m constantly taking more and more macro shots, just for the hell of it. They’re a lot of fun to look back and see what I’ve done or, not done). Ahem....what’s this about an upside down chair back, I say? Oh well...you know, the problem lies in poor quality control...you just can’t get good hired help nowadays...😊😊😊 Have a great weekend. Cheers Patrick
  5. Hi folks Many thanks for all of your comments and encouragement. Well, well, well...In addition to being a lover of modern art, I’ve decided that Genesis’ owner is also ‘into’ radio controlled model yachts (strange that, isn’t it?😉)? If you look closely, there’s now a tiny radio controlled gaff - rigged yacht, leaning casually against the writing bureau in the Main Saloon. It seems the owner is getting the model ready to put her in the water for a quick sail. Have a nice weekend, folks. Cheers. Patrick
  6. Thanks Josh. Your last luxury yacht???? Never say never, they say. Once you’ve done, there’ll be another, then another, then another....😀 Enjoy your weekend. Cheers. Patrick
  7. Hi Phil Damn you work fast!!!! Nice job on the rigging. Not long too go now, that’s for sure. Cheers. Patrick
  8. Hi Josh Nice job! I especially like the sails and how they make the whole boat ‘pop’. The use of magnets on the superstructure is also a really nifty idea. I might just pinch that idea for my models one day, too. I hope your niece liked the boat. All the best! Cheers. Patrick
  9. Hi folks. A quick update on Genesis’ progress. Ok. I admit that I’m not tech-savvy. Having said that, I’ve just discovered how to make my IPhone 8 zoom in closer than 2.0x. I know, I know....I’m not young like you guys😀. Armed with this new skill, I just thought I’d show off some of my new zoomed-in photos of Genesis’ details. Enjoy. Cheers Patrick
  10. Hi Carl - yes, I have often wondered about these ‘modern art’ pieces and the astronomical prices that they fetch. Oh well...it’s all in the eyes of the beholder, I guess. Have a great weekend. Cheers. Patrick
  11. Hi Marcus-Thanks! I, also really like the addition of the photos and paintings. They kinda give it an extra touch of realism. Hi Denis-Thanks for your comments. Genesis has been a whole lot of fun so far; allowing me to let my imagination run wild...hence, all the colourful decor. Definitely not your boring interior, that’s for sure. Have a great weekend! Cheers Patrick
  12. Hi Dave Hah. Thanks! I wish I could paint...with my level of skills, I could probably only manage to paint a blob...just! Thanks for the compliments though. Cheers Patrick

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.
