Hi from NW England

Recommended Posts

A quick intro,I'm Tony 67, been modeling in one form or another from childhood really, starting with Airfix kits and the more expensive Tamiya Monogram etc once I could afford them. Then onto balsa and tissue aircraft and scale RC model boats as the children got older and they could sail them too. Still got all the boats and now I'm retired I could do with finishing the hydrographic  survey ship Bulldog that I was building when life got in the way.

I've always fancied a go at wooden static ships which is the main reason I'm here. I have some of the Anatomy of the Ship books and might have a go at Pandora or Lawhill .I'm well aware of the time these things take .and certainly appreciate the standard of models on the site, and already picking up tips and ideas.

Welcome! Just exactly is NW England? We're about two years apart and I served in the army europe from 72-74. I started with the whaler M.S. Morgan because I had interest since reading Moby Dick in 1966, then seeing the movie. Study-study-study. Ask questions.

Hi David North West England. Oswaldtwistle to be exact. I understand the reason to build a vessel you have an interest in. I came across some photos of Lawhill in a bookshop while on holiday quite some time ago and later spotted the book in another shop so my interest in this ship started from there. I haven't come across any reference to anyone building a model of it yet, though Pandora has been done by more than one member so I have some useful reference material there.

Gidday Tony and another warm welcome from the Land Downunder.

You have found a site where the members knowledge and expertise is second to none.

One suggestion is to look at the various build logs as they may assist in deciding which ship you build.

I still look into various build logs for inspiration and to assist in problem solving.

I wish you all the best in your endeavours.

Mark.

I used to live in Church, just next door to you. Now in Horwich.

 

Nice to see another Lancastrian here!!

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.
