hello all

Recommended Posts

I am a long time lurker from Northern NY where I teach organic and medicinal chemistry.  Have been enjoying the hobby off and on for about 20 years.  The contributions from people on this forum have been invaluable to me. I have a strong aversion to photography and refuse to be bound to a cell phone so pictures are not something I can offer most of the time.  I am quite willing to answer any questions on the models I have tackled.  From MS the Niagara and Confederacy, from AL the Endeavour and from Bluejacket my current project the Notman which is done except for the rigging.

 

thank you all

Welcome, LG! I only took one semester of o-chem in college, but I really enjoyed it. Too bad we cannot see some pictures of your Charles P. Notman, as that is a showstopper kit as well as one that doesn't get too much face time here in social media land.

 

Cheers!

  • I'll try to clean up my disasterous work space and ask the wife to see if she can get a couple decent shots of the Notman.  It is a beautiful ship for hauling dirty coal.  Also a nice respite from building multiple dozens of canon and the rigging is not over the top difficult.  I'll take the booms and gaffs over yards anyday.

Gidday and welcome from the glorious land  Downunder.  I also have an aversion to photographs and mobile phones. I am not exactly a Luddite but am closely related.

Good luck with your builds.

Mark

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.
