  1. Thanks for the encouragement! It is nice to see a finished ship. Omar
  2. How time flies. Over 2 years. I did not realize it had been so long. I added a few items to the ship this week: 1. freeing ports made from card stock. I was going to use very thin balsa until I realized how out of scale they would be. 2.The grates at the helmsman station. I had saved some copper screen from who knows what that gave me a reasonable grate at my scale. a 10mm X 10 mm is too small for me to make out of wood. Obviously I did not perish at sea. The ship sits on my work table along with an alien space ship still under construction, but I have been putting my creative time into my 1967 Barracuda. It is finally at the final few adjustments to linkages and I now am ready to do more work on my ship. Omar
  3. I am restoring a 1967 Plymouth Barracuda and it has taken me over 5 years with easy access to parts. What you are doing is AMAZING!!!!
  4. this is a beautiful ship. Congratulations
  5. as usual, I see your work and must make changes to mine Cutty. I have my boats made but I think your clinker method will greatly enhance them. Instead of working on Cutty, I continue to work on my 1967 one owner car. 5 years and very close to completion. 50 years and 200,000 miles (321,868 kilometer) took their toll.
  6. I love the HUGE fins on these Cadillacs. What a challenge, it is a huge car
  7. You have an excellent model. You definitely created a "wooden" ship.
  8. your work is always worth waiting for. and now to go back to my little boats and add more detail. Omar
  9. once again you raise the bar. It is a very satisfying to work smaller and smaller getting finer detail. Welcome back Omar
  10. Hello!! The ship is on my work table and I have been working on other project instead of her. My energy primarily goes to my 1967 Barracuda. It has been a long restoration and I want to start her up this spring. I bought her new and she has over 200,000 miles and had a lot of things to do to get her up and running So I have satisfied the ship itch by watching the work of others Omar
  11. I really like the jig. Being able to screw items to it while making your ship looks extremely helpful I am looking at page 1 for this comment. Great build

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.
