  1. Beautiful job on your Syren, Novastorm! It will be a pleasure following you along! Thomas
  2. Thank you very much for your kind comments and all the likes! I wasn't aware that there was so much demand for jolly boats 😊! Thomas
  3. Well, it has been a while since my last update . . . Currently progress is very slow. I built a nicer stand for my model (images 1 – 3) following Chuck’s initial example on his Syren. I also experimented with hanging my jolly boat from the rear davits and noticed a few things: - If I hang the jolly boat ready to be lowered it does not cover up the stern carvings and its details are displayed best (images 4 – 8). - Although I have some pear wood accents on my Syren model, building the whole jolly boat out of pear wood does not match the color scheme of my Syren and looks far too dark (images 4 and 5). So I had to rebuild the jolly boat a second time using bass wood with box wood accents. Image 9 shows the work in progress.

  4. Thank you for your interest! Don't worry, I will finish my Syren, every little detail of it, and will continue posting as well. In the moment only 'a lot of life' is getting in my way and progress is very slow. This hopefully will change again in the future, at the latest once I retire from work 😉 Thomas
  5. You do a wonderful job on this build, Mike! It is a pleasure to follow! Thomas
  6. Another one finished! As expected it turned into a master piece. Congratulations! Thomas

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.
