  1. Well done mate, once you’ve done individual stanchions you’ll never go back as it looks so much better.
  2. It’s a matter of understanding how they work first, then how to rig for it. There are lines running everywhere alongside the hull.
  3. And finally so little bit of bling for the base when finished.....
  4. Canute shows just how much detail there is, so additionally I’ll do individual stanchions, (the Tamiya metal set will be fine as it’s got two railings, there is a ship’s bell on the forward funnel, and lots of little bits and pieces that be used to enhance it. A lot from spares but it needs a large amount of rigging blocks. I photocopied the drilling template so when I stuff it up or pour something on it I have an emergency.
  5. Geeze I wish. I’ve got a lot on this month. I’ve got to put the ringols on first anyways. There is a lot of extra detail to put on this one even with the aftermarket.
  6. Should be good, I noticed the Anatomy Of the Ship is bringing out the Iowa this year too. I would so so love to get a sponsor to fuel this habit.
  7. I’m thinking your big M will never be finished. I’m planning on 6 months for Seydlitz, should take me into our winter and rugby season.
  8. So I do t know how I’m going to pull it off yet, but I’ve bought quite a few sets of these 1/700 blocks for the rigging. I lived in Timor for 6 months in 2001/02, some of it would not have changed since the 1800’s.
  9. It’s a nice little kit that, I’m thinking of a torpedo boat after our next build.
  10. It appears he was paroled as soon as he got here to work as a book keeper so I reckon he volunteered
  11. One of my ancestors was transported to Australia for Bigamy, I reckon he would have been relieved.

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.
