Happy New Year to everyone!  


It's been six months since my last post and I have not been at the bench as much as I would have liked, but thats life.  Here is a  current photo of the 80' ELCO.  I must say she's very close to being completed.

Congratulations on completing your PT Boat​.  You did an excellent job on building it.  I know that your ship modeling mentor would be proud of your work.  It is a shame he passed away before you finished it. I am looking forward to your next build.

You did a fantastic job Tim.  What is good about this boat was that it could be modified for different missions.  To bad the Navy got rid of all of them after the war.  I was at a show several years ago and at one of the tables I think I saw ten models of the 80' and each had been modified for a different purpose.  This following page can give you more info on what I am talking about.

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.
