  1. absolutely gorgeous!!!......and very elegant.....
  2. dear friend herve in france, did some fancy manipulation here....pretty cool
  3. you seem to be able to capture a fluidity in your sculptures, a feeling of movement, which is nice....
  4. thanks hubac-calhoun.....my R/C build, along with other's is on this forum.....https://www.rcgroups.com/scale-sailboats-653/? under coronne II.. hope i was allowed to post that link......the rudder, the yards are radio controlled...that's it....some fellas actually attach a submersible motor and prop to the rudder or drop keel to help get them out of trouble....me...i have to be on the water in a boat, as this old style of ship ends up drifting downwind and i have to tow it back.....a trades wind sailor, opposed to the more modern designs which can go up wind to varying degrees.....all the windows and lanterns have led's....cheers....
  5. great...and the excitement builds!!!
  6. thanks, even get smoke rings sometimes
  7. just a simple record that she sails, and the cannons work.... will try for better at a later time.......
  8. are you sure???...are you really really sure??? ............nice to have company.....
  9. forgot to look at the drawing...haha....have to add more lead.....should be a little below the lower wale.....
  10. thanks ej............video was pretty shaky, being on a boat, so we'll have to patch together some of the better shots....we'll see....
  11. am quite relieved, thanks...........do you think she should sit a bit lower in the water?....
  12. ok..............got her in the water with the help of a friend......first effort was a struggle finding the technique, but we'll have to do it again, and it will be a lot easier, plus we'll take better shots....videos were too shaky, as we were on a boat....now i know how much ballast and how and where to launch.......will make another effort at the proper time........
  13. interesting......never thought of this before, but i think your scratch carvings actually have a more dynamic emotional appeal, than factory ones.....ship has more of a life force which effects those who see it..............
  14. haha.....was referring to the ring on your finger rather than the wreath

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.
