  1. Please. Just don't do it. Maybe someday but for now don't as it causes issues with those looking for ships. I am and will be removing tags from non-ship models effective immediately.
  2. Hey, folks! You may have noticed that our non-ship/non-categorized build logs area has become rather popular. With that in mind, a couple of things need to be pointed out. This area was added by popular demand, but since it's not directly related to our main mission and calling, i.e. ship models, it doesn't get quite the same amount of attention from staff as our other forum areas. This is mainly seen in the lack of consistency in build log titles in this area. In the main forum, we police your titles and edit them to conform to our naming conventions, but it's a little more of a "wild west" atmosphere here in non-ship land, so we hope you'll police your own selves. Nevertheless, you should give some thought to how you name your non-ship build logs. Remember, titles serve two functions: they tell us what your build log is about, and they are a key factor in making our site's search function useful. Just like a ship build log, your title should include: name of subject (e.g. Brewster B-239, PzKpfw IV Ausf H, Saturn V, etc.) your exact username (spelled and capitalized exactly as it appears in your profile) the name of the manufacturer if building from a kit the scale of your model. You can add other details if you like, but keep in mind that a cluttered title is almost as bad as a title with no details. And the search function really does depend on you typing in your username correctly. For example, if your username is "fictionalguy", but your build log title says "by Fred" or even "by fictional guy" (notice the space), your build log(s) won't show up in a title search by username (assuming the searcher typed in your username correctly) -- it has to be exact. Here's some examples of good titles. Grumman Gosling by duckdanger - Airfix - 1/72 1968 Volvo 142 by howswedeitis - 1/15th scale - scratch Eagle Transporter by oldscifirocks - MPC - 1/72 - from Space 1999 TV series So that's it. Keep it simple. Make it functional. It makes our site look sharp and improves its usefulness. Thanks!
  3. Hi all, All members of MSW are entitled to publish their kit reviews in this area. It isn't just a privilege for staff members. We want a collective voice as to the evaluation of kits, both old and new. However, there are some very simple guidelines that really must be adhered to in order for this section to work as designed. Also, all kits under review must be un-started. This is the only balanced way to get an overall initial feel for the kit. Kit reviews must: Give an initial assessment of the overall package with regards to standard and presentation. All materials must be assessed for quality, including ply and other timbers including strip and dowel, fittings, photo-etch, rigging blocks and cord, sail materials, decals (where supplied), cast materials including cannon and culverins etc, Kit design approach. An overall, personal assessment of the model construction and other interesting and pertinent things you note as you look through the plans, instructions and other drawing materials. Your review must contain clear photographs. Nothing hazy or fuzzy etc. Please do not use this area for starting new topics asking questions about models that aren't under review. Where you do wish to ask a question about a review, then post it as a reply to the review topic, and hopefully those questions can be answered. This area isn't a general model kit discussion place. Please respect the intention of this area and keep other discussion within the other relevant forum areas. Thanks, Jim

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.
