  1. Hi Mark -aaah. Yep, “burnout” was the term I was searching for, but I couldn’t quite remember it. It was on the tip of my tongue when I was writing the post... The actual two engines are there, but you can’t actually see them as they’re obscured by all of the pipes and what not. Thanks Patrick Hi Pat Thanks. It’s good to be back, for sure. Have a great Easter Cheers. Patrick
  2. Hi everyone! I’ve been a bit scarce on MSW over the past few weeks...I think I went into a ‘bad place’ and needed a break from the world of models and MSW. Anyho, hopefully that’s all done and dusted now. Thanks for everyone’s comments and feedback! Much appreciated, as always. Here’s a quick update. Over the last few nights, I managed to work on the Engine Room. It’s the best I could do so far; given the small size of the model. I hope you like it. Cheers Patrick
  3. Hi Keith I’m just catching up. Oh..my..Lord...! Totally gobsmacked. Your skills are just amazing. Cheers. Patrick
  4. Hi Lawrence I’m just catching up with your Build Log. Your OC is looking just great. The re-do of the magazine, etc is well and truly behind you and you’re cracking on beautifully with the rest of the build. I especially like the tiny details, such as the four scupper hatches. Very nice! Cheers Patrick
  5. Hi Frank! Amazing as usual! Congratulations on finishing your model. You must be justifiably proud. Well done. Cheers Patrick
  6. Hi Vaddoc Marvellous work, so far. I still can’t get over how BIG your ship is. Have you thought about a case for it, yet? If so, it’ll have to be suitably large as well. Have a good one! Cheers. Patrick
  7. Hi Josh I think you’re having too much fun with this ship! I don’t blame you, either, because it looks great. Gotta love the octopus. Cheers Patrick
  8. Hi Mark Great to see you back at things with Licorne. The ships boat looks marvellous. Mistakes? what mistakes? LOL All the best...and I’m so happy to hear that things have taken a turn for the better. Onwards and upwards! Cheers Patrick
  9. Hi Marcus It’s been a while since I’ve popped in, but dang, those sails looks marvellous! As as for the rest of the build, well, you know what I think of your boat overall. Yep, I’ve said it before..loads of character and charm. A real joy to look at. Cheers Patrick
  10. Ah hah Igor!!!! I’ve been waiting for you to get back onto this boat. What took you so long (LOL). You know me, I’ll be eagerly following on as usual. Cheers Patrick
  11. Hi John I take my hat off to you for surviving 16 years of running your own business! Small and lean seems to be the way to go, I guess (as you found by downsizing from 16 staff to three). Do you still own it after all these years? Cheers Patrick
  12. Hi CDW Thanks - you’re definitely right. My preference would be to stay small and have a larger profit share. I never really appreciated what what it meant to run a small business, until I bought my own. A very steep learning curve, that’s for sure. 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.
