Hi Nic,

sorry to hear you had to go through that surgery,  after I had mine it took me about 2 months to get back to normal so be patient, be sure to walk everyday it helps tremendously in your  recovery,  don't let yourself sneeze on any account!  I sneezed once and it felt like I have been ripped open again.

 

take care,

john

So I have been out of the hospital for a week now. Get tired very easily, every day is a little improvement. Got to looking at the RJ last Friday, and wondered why there are no scupper ports in the bulwarks. Careful examination of the plans shows 8 tiny channels from the deck out the hull. I thought "why bother?"but I couldn't ignore them. Here's a shot of one of them (just left of the locker) and its exit. Time to bring out the black touch-up paint.

     Glad to see you back modeling again. Takes awhile to get back to normal. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Nic,

 

So happy to see you back in action and hear that your recovery is going well.  Making tiny wood shavings is great therapy and I''m learning great for the heart too.  My doctor told me this morning my blood pressure is much better and I couldn't put it down to anything else except the peace of shipbuilding.

Very glad to see you back to it, and I hope above all else that you are feeling better and that your recovery is as smooth as possible. My Dad recently had a heart attack and is undergoing tests to determine if a bypass is necessary-- it's a pretty scary time and it is good to see that you are moving past it. The Red Jacket is looking beautiful!

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.
