    Old sergal sovereign of the sea

    The old Sergal kits are really problematic worse if it is missing parts.I would stay away from it.Cheers! John.
  2. I love your interest in all the victory feeds john, I guess you had some interest in her.


    Regards  OC.

  3. I would like to do the bow, waist and stern sections in 1/64 as a diorama.I am just in the planning stages now and builds like this are very helpful in my research. Cheers! John.
  4. This is not an easy build.When I started my Sergal kit back in 1973 when I opened the box I knew that this was going to be challenge.No decent plans or instructions and what there was in Italish.With the help of Longridge, I made it through to the end with lots of blood, sweat, and tears.It was a real challenge as there was no internet then and not a lot of pics.Looking back though it was a great introduction to research and planning.I don't think that many Victorys got finished in those days.Cheers! John.
  5. Love this build.Cheers! John.
  6. Looking forward to seeing some new pics.Cheers! John.
  7. Very nice Victory build Gary. Cheers! John.
  8. Lookin' good Cheers! John.
  9. Very interesting build,Love it! Cheers John.
  10. Hi !William.I find that on any long build I start off with great enthusiasm then have a dry spell around 2/3rds in then when I see the finish line the enthusiasm slowly returns.Hang in there.Cheers! John.

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.
