  1. thank you for your kind words my friend and your build logs - which I have followed from day 1. you are the best my friend, the best. mort
  2. hi, i have a question to other victory modelers. how much of the middle gun deck is visible once the upper gun deck and quarter deck are in place? i am asking because i am planking the middle gun deck and i noticed in the aos victory that within the planked area there deck is furniture - hatches, a capsan, etc. - and i am wondering if i should add that to the model even though caldercraft does not. thanks, mort
  3. thank you robert . i have been following your build since day 1. it's been a great resource. did more fairing and started planking the middle gun deck, - 5 butt method- am using maple planks as i did on the diana i prefer maple the caldercraft supplied tanganika. will post pictures as soon as i can. if any one wants to see progress feel free to send me a pm with your email and i will be happy to oblige. hopefully my son or my brother in law can show me the way. mort
  4. did a little work tonight. faired and beviled the hull frames and made a template for the the port side floor of capt. hardy's day cabin which i hope to be able to display along with the port half of his dining cabin and the masters cabin. mort
  5. hi guys and gals, after many many to many years of following i have decided to post a build log. i bought this kit in 2006 along with the snake and diana. i finished the diana last fall and started the victory in march after completing the duke william. to date i have lower gundeck, dummy barrel strips, stem, keelson and frames attached to the keel. i am working on beveling bow and stern frames. as soon as i figure out how to post some pictures i will and once i do please feel free to comment on any and everything you wish. thanks, mort
  6. hi kevin, quick question. i noticed on p 42 on the upper deck A7 #33 of mckay he mentions a steam trunk. any idea what it is? thanks and keep up the great work. mort
  7. hi kevin, the rudder looks great. pardon my ignorance but what is holding the outer part of the rudder chain? is it another eyebolt? thanks, mort
  8. hi paul, the hull steps I think look fine. the entry port is nicely done. where did you get the sheve. keep up the great work, mort
  9. hi, i am still researching and organizing as far as the victory is concerned. i intend starting her in 3 weeks or so. thanks, mort
  10. hi peter, could you post a picture of the spectacle plate? thanks, mort ps I love your build and hope to build a 74 one day
  11. my pleasure. i hope to use your build as a guide when i build her in a few years. mort
  12. perfect, great thank you. did not do a build log for the diana. if you send me your email in a pm I will be happy to send you some. thanks very much, mort
  13. hi paul, i have a question if you can recall. on 3/23/16 post #2 are parts # 105 and 106 the stern inner and outer extensions even with the ends of the gunport patterns #270 etc? they appear to be and I would think they would be. thanks, mort
  14. hi paul, just discovered your build log - very impressed - and having just completed the diana am about to start on the caldercraft victory. question about the stern fascia. you built the entire piece on your work table and then glued it onto the stern? thanks, mort
  15. hi, when I built my snake - about 4 1/2 years ago i moistened the middle of the deck and gently and carefully with the aid of my plank bender was able to fold the false deck and slip into place. others have cut the deck in half and glued in both halves. hope this helps, mort
  16. very very impressive. I look forward to more posts. I have the kit under my work table. mort

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.
