This build is based on BlueJacket's 1/192 solid hull Liberty Ship kit. The detailing is a combination of scratch-building, adding to kit parts, and after-market items, particularly for the cargo rigging.

What type of 37mm guns are you showing her armed with up forward?  I really wish i knew what they were.  I am having a really hard time finding out what model of gun they were.  And how accurate is your model when it comes to the placement of the ship's 6 machine guns?

    • superb build and brilliant presentation - saw all 38 photos 
    • Great work.
      Very realistic.
    • Great display. I particularly like the stonework. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so I think I'll flatter you when it comes time to display my next build!

    • It's crazy how good an iPhone camera is! Love all those dockyard details: the stonework, the moss, the various bits n' pieces. I even love the dirty grey/green water in the berth!
    • Nice job! What a great way to display the Diana. Just wait until that coppering gets a dark brown patina! You'll then need to consider her in "dry dock" for repairs 😂. The Diana was my first Jotika/Caldercraft build and it remains one of my favorites. I'm now doing dioramas for all my builds. Great fun.

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.
