    Do you get a fleet? Maybe a flock or a herd ? Or even a swarm !!!

    Just to let you all know I have now completed the Albatros as well complete this time with a fully working control stick. Practice makes perfect don't you know ! I still have the Curtis Jenny in my stash to do and have been trying to find a Nieuport at a reasonable price but no luck so far. Sometimes I wish I lived in the US - so much cheaper there. Anyway, a few pics for you.
  3. Brian, go for the Occre kit. It's great fun especially with the interior detail.

    This is the most wonderful model.
  5. The posts I mean, not the railings.
  6. Looks good but why did you paint them white ? They looked so good dark.
  7. I would stick a covering on the 'clipped' roof in fact I would plank it then plank the other one as well. You will never know the difference.
  8. Brian, can I go back a bit and ask about the clamps you used at the beginning of your planking. Did you make them or were they bought from somewhere ?
  9. What's happened to your paddle steamer ?

    And finally, finally, I didn't like the stand much. It was too low and so now we have the dogfight from the ceiling !!

    I don't know why, it just happened that way and I think you are right - another hole in the ceiling !!!

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
