    Falkonet boat model kits quality

    Check out Master Korabel Small boat kits. I built one and it was great.
  2. Tim I have found very little history. There was a little splurge in Wikipedia. MK never gives any color scheme on any of their models so I just do what I think the Ship may have looked like.
  3. Lou it is set up for Anti-Submarine Warfare. Very effective, not one submarine attack during her entire career.
  4. Got the cannons built and installed, built and installed one of Chuck's helm wheels (it is a teeny bit large but it looks miles better than WM that came with kit), built and installed grates (Chuck's), got the binnacle built and installed (Eugene you might want to correct directions and add binnacle location). Worked on head work.

    Avoiding slack in standing rigging

    I do the backstays last and use them to tighten everything up.
  6. I tried to share a video from a friend to the MSW page. Facebook sent me to the MSW signup page.
  7. Chris here is some history and pictures left on my build log by Viggen I thought you might find interesting.
  8. This is a nice build and makes a very good looking model. I suggest you add some color as MK just has bare wood. Have fun with it.

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.
