  1. Hi AVBiker, Your RC looks great! My rails are not according to the plans as hull and stem from Panart has different shape. I did not want to use the brass wire So I'm trying to create rails from wood. The shape is done to fit the model. PetaV
  2. After final shaping it sits pretty good I would say. Far beyond my expectation! 😲
  3. I take all my courage and started with my bigest chalenge. I don't like the way Panart did the headrails. They use only shaped brass wire. I want to make them from wood. I started with shaping the main rails. I believe I'm very close to the "OK" fit but still some work to be done. First paper stencil: Wooden rails and planty of re-shaping Fore mast crowsfeet also in place
  4. Today I played with crowsfeet. I think it turned out pretty good. Happy with the result 😎
  5. Btw from his videos I learnt how to make ropes...... How to tie knots etc. Super videos
  6. That is fantastic stuff. Thank you very much. His videos are top and in EN...... UNBEATABLE.

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.
