  1. And the parts list? I'm experiencing some difficulty in finding the parts in the box and plastic while working on the Polotsk
  2. So no problem there. Which english brigantine do you have in mind then?
  3. Terrific! And I will watch and enjoy the log when you start!
  4. I guess you could also use an electrical plankbender (which I happen to use sometimes to pre-bend the planks ). Maybe handier than an iron, which is quite bulky?
  5. Ohwell....fine, either way. I won't be ordering it soon anyway (I think). I still have a lot of building hours to go on my current kit
  6. By the way, I got my Polotsk from the same seller
  7. A week ago I asked Greenstone, who promoted the kit in this forum, and he told me : Report post #65emer 30, 2018 Yes, it will be with english text instruction, photo instruction and drawing
  8. It's available at the moment. On eBay, search for Master Korabel Avos
  9. Congratulations grandpa! I'm still waiting for my first grandchild. Might still take a while though. No worries about taking a break from building. It's the same with me. Haven't touched it for a while. But I have several other hobbies as well. The main thing is you enjoy building when you do it. It shouldn't be looked upon as an obligation. It looks wonderful at this stage. A very happy and healthy year to you and your family (and for everyone who read this as well) ((even to everybody who doesn't))!
  10. Great! Will there also be an english instruction/manual included (or available)?
  11. Not boring to me! The pictures and progress are great! Sail on!
  12. Great job, you two! Makes me want to pick it up again as well. But after the summer holiday it's back to work and it will take a few weeks to get things going again. In the meantime I enjoy following your progress.

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.
