  1. welcome and good luck with the rest of the build which looks great so far
  2. lol i dont quite know how i keep missing the start of your projects, hopefully that will change soon, as i will get to stalk everyone more regularly
  3. hello my friend, glad to see you back at the bench, hope you and family are well, the pearl looks great
  4. Looking good, now would be a good time to obtain a decent rigging plan
  5. i think the admiral is far more excited about me packing up, i am certainly going to miss being in a work place, i have worked since the age of 8 years old (paper and milk delivery rounds), the Navy took 35 years of me and the last 8 have been in a factory, and private healthcare warehousing, lol thank god i have a dog to take walkies and a wife that always supports everything I do Lifes good, and hopefully going to get a lot better
  6. thank you i hope to see some real progress on her during Feb i am getting to the stage where i need to decide how i am going to secure the superstructure to the hull, at last i will be able to say, so much to do and all the time in the world to do it
  7. Lovely work, you and the fellow workers are going to be so proud of the finished project
  8. Good evening everyone progressing with the railings and netting also the stations on the bridge roof are nearly complete have stained half the netting with a Flory wash to see the difference as i tone the white primer down
  9. bought off Ebay for a fraction of the price, great book
  10. Good evening everyone, yep two posts in one day and LOL i have still got 12 working days left put everything on that i have made up for a photo tonight, so i can start to work out how i am going to achieve making her look like a working boat, next month should be back to the hull and do some catch up work with that, i would say she is about 50% built now, but then on top of that there is all the clutter to be made the bridge walkway railings still need to be adjusted, as they form the handles on the steps leading down

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.
