  1. What have you received today?

    if you refer to the guillotine then it seems sturdy enough but i will see
  2. What have you received today?

    preparations for serious build: Received today the Multi-Angle Guillotine, made some test-cuts on Tanganika-Wood ant Nut-wood 1.5mm, works like charm
  3. What have you received today?

    Received today my copy of "The 50-Gun Ship" This is a possible build i will be doing when i get to 100% scratch builds (Otherwise it's just a nice book to have :D)
  4. indeed, but i have my doubts how often i can do that before the socket is damaged, you dont need to take out the nut (only buy more nuts) Anyway, i am looking now to replace all the screws with butterfly-screws
  5. I actually have a Comment on the instructions @James H, regarding steps 7, 12 and 20. I have placed the Nuts in the Hex-Holes same as in step 8, this way it seems easier to remove the screw if repositioning of the clamp is needed - perhaps for the holders from step 7 and 20 it is not that important, as you would only unscrew them a bit to change the angle/position but in case of the front and back holder (step 12) i would rather suggest to place the nuts in the cutouts - this screw will be more often taken out and you might damage the socket if you do it a few times. Also you can see on this pictures, that's how Wojciech has it on his site: http://www.hobbyzone.pl/data/gallery/256_600x600.jpg http://www.hobbyzone.pl/data/gallery/253_600x600.jpg
  6. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    pity in europe we arent allowed to hunt with Black Powder at all...
  7. These gun Carriages look much better than those on the Vanguard, but still it is not 100% historical how a carriage should look...
  8. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Or go for Black Powder
  9. What have you received today?

    Cannon Barrels and Gratings from RBModel arrived today
  10. What have you received today?

    same here, some workshop stuff to organize all my electronic bits, paints etc. i will need a new workspace when i start my POB Model
  11. What have you received today?

    My Frau is 100% Polish (so am I) but we live in Germany, somehow that argument doesnt fly (although she is generally supporting my hobby, i even got her to sand some frames :P)
  12. What have you received today?

    yes it's beautiful, i have other HZ products already but this is the best one so far (and Huge, wife doesnt approve :P)
  13. As someone already stated, painting the strip with Glue helps a lt against splintering, although i use watered-down Wood-Glue, makes the surface harder and less prone to splinter while drilled
  14. What have you received today?

    I received my Hobbyzone Building slip yesterday and already put it together (couldnt wait). Pics will follow in new Ship Build log (i am waiting for delivery of parts to start)

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.
