New here...re-entering the hobby...seeking sage advice

Recommended Posts

First, let me say, I appreciate the fact this magnificent forum exists. A lot has changed in the world of information since I began my modeling journey 50+ years ago. I've taken a 20-year hiatus from the hobby (as life priorities mandated), but I'm anxious to re-enter the hobby.


I'll post a proper build thread, but I though the obligatory introduction was the correct way to start.


I look forward to reading through the archives and seeking knowledge. As with other new members, I appreciate your patience.

Hello Bryan and welcome aboard,


Life priorites, I think we can all relate to that. Life always has a way to rearrange your life.


There are a lot of people here who are willing to help and advise and answer any questions you might have. 

We are all here to help and encourage each other.


I wish you smooth sailing with our gallant crew.

As they used to say to me when I lived in Denton Texas (for a period of time) "Y'all gonna love it here!".

This was the wisest thing the NRG board did. There is so much rich and inspiring work within. Welcome to you!

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.
