Well if that's the case Jim. "We won't speak to her."

So you go right ahead and have a ball doing lots of modelling.

And welcome to MSW

Gidday Jim and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder.

You have found a site where members possess a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise.

You will find the collective knowledge is freely shared and questions are encouraged.

If you haven't already I would suggest a search of the build logs as this will assist in your selection of model.

I wish you all the best in your endeavours.

Mark.

Welcome indeed! Your are in the home of the Merlin engine from WWII. Used in watercraft I don't know.

Although I know some Merlin engines were built in Glasgow I thought it was developed at Rolls Royce in Derby England. My family lived in Derby during the war and the factory made it a target for the Luftwaffe.

 

Welcome James.

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.
