  1. micro towels and NO cleaning agent - unless it has been specifically designed for acrylic transparent sheet
  2. glass is easy to clean - but also easy to break. Something to keep in mind - particularly since you plan on parking it close to the front door.....

    Chebece 1750 by Forlani Daniel

    As in the titel, it is a Chebec (in arabic Shibec, I believe). They were used in the Mediteranian Sea between Europe and Africa.

    Hi Daniel, thanks for your answer. Could you briefly explain how you use it to mill on a curved surface? Do you draw a line, then follow it while milling? If so, with what do you draw the line, pencil of pen? Slainte gu mhath L.H.
  5. The arrow on the LH side is gone, nothing on the right😒😕 Will stop posting until I read it has been sorted
  6. found it. A fair bit lower then where I usually go, but will take account of it in the future Slainte
  7. Something entirely different, but on the old system I could click on the LH margine and it would take me to the top of the page ( I used this a number of times, particularly if I only had a small numer of topics in my notification screen). This is now either not working, or not there. Can you IT guys get me out of my misery 😒

    Hi, do you have a manual milling machine or a computer driven one? Whatever you use, perfect work
  9. love the bit about frustration and joy, exactly why I stopped with plastic models for a long time. Now I make 'alterations' to kits to get this frustration/joy

    HMS King George V by RGL - Tamiya - 1/350

    I closed my ebay accoumt some time ago because of 2 things: 1) I had shipping issues that both the seller and ebay refused to look into 2) I do miniature painting, and I found it increasingly annoying that so much of their 'recommended' stuff came from known recasters (people who buy a figure from a reputable manufacturer and recast them (inferior quality) at a fraction ofthe price. It came to a point that it was nearly impossible to determine if an unusual figure wasrecast or not. Since I am a bit bored with most sculpters approaches (too static or the same pose for different subjects) the novel pieces are what gives me pleasure, and for that I am willing to pay the (sometimes relatively high) price those limit ededitions bring. I am on a miniature forum, and all manufacturers that are on there report having the same problem and ebay not giving them adequate protection. So I chose to leave ebay and focus on going back to the more old fashioned way of finding companies I can interact with properly, either physically (shop) or online. Anyway, rant over, let's getback to this wonderful build and no longer hijack this thread.

    Ta, Old Colingwood, I will
  12. Will the stem and keel parts be the simple version, or the more complicated version?
  13. I for one would like to have the option to explude pre-spiled planks. As you said, Chuck, it is a basic skill that will allow you to progress to much more complex builds without having to worry about how to do proper planking

    Anybody can point me to a company in Europe ( preferably UK) that can reliably provide me with Pontos upgrades? Also, what basic ship do you use? I have experience with Tamiya and find them of good quality. Compared to them the likes of Heller and Revell fall short. Slainte gu mhath L.H.

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.
