  1. hello Adrieke ,wishing you a good xmas and the best for 2018 ,edwin

  2. hello Carl , the model is about 45 cm long hi Scott , yes its been awhile hey Piet nice to see you again too this week not much progress, still working on the second layer. I struggled a bit with the angle at the stern but got it done on one side , hopefully the other side will be easier.
  3. Thanks Carl and Grant as promised an update on where I am at : I had a look at what the real Pilar looks like and If possible adapt my build to it. I am a bit confused though as I found pictures of it renovated where they removed most of the air intakes.
  4. Its been awhile but I am finally back to building. I recently moved and I don't have a workplace anymore at the moment, just a foldable table setup outside. that's why I got this kit which don't require as much room and I can pack away after I am done building for the day. So far I have already finished the first planking. I didn't take to many pics but I ll add them in the next post.
  5. thanks for the advice guys. I don't have a sanding belt Augie. might be the next tool I buy but no budget at the moment so I ll have to do it by hand
  6. WEEK 37 - 41 all the parts for 12 undercarriages for the cannons on the middle deck and also some of the cannons themselves I am trying to decide if I am going to paint the undercarriages or not. from what I can tell from images they weren't in the movie however I really like the look of the 'endeavour' cannon which is painted bright red , but I don't think it would fit in I might have to watch one of the movies to have a better look at them
  7. WEEK 35 - 36 First layer of planks. this has taken me a fair bit of work and with all the manipulations some of the barrels and crates from the first deck came loose. after I have finished sanding and filling the hull I will try to place them back. I haven't taken any pictures yet after I finished just a few in progress pictures that shows the wiring in the lower part off the hull I stained some of the planks on the inside as they will be visible from the other side
  8. WEEK 32 - 34 all the parts for the gratings on the lower deck. I have them all assembled which wasn't easy. the edges are laser cut in mdf and when removing the burn stains I broke several of them. luckily I got them all back together without it showing. I haven't glued them on yet.
  9. little or no progress and I have a dilemma the picture shows the instructions for the little structure where the doors need to be fixed above the green border however in real this would mean the doors will go all the way to the top which would be impossible in real so I can either shorten the doors (they are metal so wont be easy) or I cut slots in the green border so they sit lower haven't decided yet
  10. if I can get decent with spray painting, I might invest in a spray boot.
  11. thanks Carl and Augie when I am spray painting I am wearing eye nose and mouth protection, already have enough problems with allergies
  12. about a month ago I received my display cabinet this will be home for the KOM, the Virginia , my current and some of my future builds

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.
