  1. Roger, for me it's the opposite. I will gain a huge 20'x24' workshop. No downsizing for. And a 12x24 garage in the same building. External from the main house.
  2. And do I have a lot of workshop stuff to pack! Phwee😖
  3. It's official, the Admiral and I got the keys to our new home today. Centralia, WA here we come. Packing still commencing. Changed the address as of today.
  4. Well, adding to the snow story. My area around Tri-cities, WA has got the snow too, not much but enough for some people to think their 4-wheel drive vehicles are the king on the road. And sure enough, those are the ones being seen in single accidents. Temp is around 28F and it's slushy out there. The new location where we have our new house (signing final paperwork tomorrow) will have 55 on Sunday. This still in WA. Looking forward to be deciding when I want the snow, not the other way around.
  5. Terve Mikko, and welcome to MSW. Draken is a great kit to build, and you are doing great with her. Looking forward seeing more of the build.
  6. Really like the top with the sheeps!
  7. Perfect sauna temp for people from Sweden and Finland is between 70 - 90° C, with a couple percent of humidity. On the other hand you don't wear anything, and you can escape to a cooler area just opening a door. Best sauna experience is when the unit is located within a few steps of a frozen lake, so you can immerse yourself into a cut upen pool from the ice.
  8. Have gotten 1/3 of the workshop packed, ready for the upcoming move. But there is so much to take care off..... phwee, looking forward when this is all over.
  9. Love to send some rain too...…. if we had any. Had a sunny beautiful day with temp in mid 55's F (12.5° C) now at 38°F (3.3°) But it sure was windy. Beaufort 5 from West didn't make the most pleasant when walking outside against the wind.
  10. Have the thickness sander and have used it a lot. Paid only 100 dollars but it was a very light used unit. Have a Proxxon table saw which will be replaced some day. Can't go wrong with Byrnes Machines.
  11. Mark, Welcome to MSW and Happy New Building Year Glad to hear you have found us.
  12. Troy, As a member from the East side of WA soon to be a resident of the west side, A warm welcome to MSW. This is the place when you have a question you will get an answer. Happy NEW Building year!
  13. I have Jim's drawplate and another one from Mikro-Mark, I used the MM just once( did throw it away) while Jim's frequently. Oil the drawplates, no matter the brand as they may start having surface issues later in their life.

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.
