  1. I love those deck details! Clean, precise and masterfully executed! Thomas
  2. This is a really fascinating build! And it blows my mind how fast you put this model together! Thomas
  3. You are now into the fun stuff, and you do it extremely well πŸ˜‰ Thomas
  4. You are a master of rigging! It looks fantastic! Thomas
  5. Great progress, Peter! She is a real beauty! Thomas
  6. Thank you, Richmond and Chuck! Thomas
  7. This battery of guns is a marvelous sight! . . . and a LOT of work πŸ™‚ Thomas
  8. Thank you, Dirk! Where the color is concerned the hammocks look whiter in the images than they really are. I chose an eggshell colored fabric, the silkspan is kind of yellowish too, and the white glue (in spite of its name πŸ˜‰) did not really whiten up the end result either. I know, Mondfeld states that the hammocks should be brownish because of all the dirt. But then he also describes the making of a hammock as simply 'folding a little roll of fabric . . . ' ☺️ Thomas
  9. Jason, Jim, Carl, B.E., thank you so much for your kind words! And thanks for all the 'likes'! After weeks of building nothing else but hammocks I am really happy to have them finished, and encouraged to get this kind of feedback! It is much appreciated. Thomas
  10. Hammocks are finally finished (see images below)! Thomas Image 1 Image 2 Image 3 Image 4
  11. Your deck fittings look great! They always are a lot of fun. Where the cannon balls are concerned I also had the feeling that the kit provided ones are a bit on the small side and went with 'larger calibers'. Thomas
  12. The companionway looks fantastic! I love these little projects! Thomas
  13. Your progress on this model is amazing. At that speed you'll be finished in a couple of months! Thomas

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.
