  1. Chuck and all, I joined SoS long ago, not member anymore as I got banned speaking up against their "support to pirates kits" even though they clearly states the opposite on their website.
  2. After the storm last Monday, and spending time in the yard for some clean up. When I saw that the shed had lost some shingles, glad there's two packages in their. So I did fix that. It's not matching the rest, but it's a shed. At least it's weather proofed again.
  3. Beautiful nice day in Connell, Wa. No need of jacket, just a regular long sleeved shirt is enough.
  4. Had a severe storm passing through last night. Was able to save the grill and glass top table before they were damaged. This morning my back yard had chairs everywhere. No power outage which was good. Temp was at 28 but wind made it colder. Constant wind at 35mph gusts towards 45 to 50. No damages to report. This morning it's cold. 22 degrees, but sunny.
  5. Amalio, good morning to you too. Having breakfast and enjoying the latest pictures of yours. Thank you!
  6. I think I did a good deed, I renewed my NRG membership a week ago and received the latest issue of the Journal just the other day. Truly missing these magazines. Good evening reading instead of Tv along with a nice cup of tea.
  7. Richard, send that math problem to her ... 😁
  8. Jan, I think having them taking out the garbage is acceptable too.
  9. Lou, I never realized we had tulip plants like those in Washington state! Besides I visited Mt. Vernon just two weeks ago……. I am in the dark for sure...
  10. I like your way approaching of the top rail in just one piece. I created all mine in pieces according to plans. I have to get used to using the ship curves.
  11. Very nice! One advantage creating a model in Fusion360 is that the base frame (keel and bulkheads) will be straight. Unless you make it like a banana on purpose. Now add on with some plywood surface and do another rendering (HQ) and we will be blown away. Rendering makes a huge difference and so realistic. Keep it up!
  12. Just recently I was fortunate of getting a free kit. This kit was already started with the framing and planking done. I am looking forward to continue this kit. The cannons and walkway are just dry-fitted so is the stem piece.
  13. Friday treat on a Thursday? Thank you, Amalio You made my day.

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.
