place suddenly just dissapeared from the known universe.

I personally would like to see you start a build log on this kit, even if you started it at the point you presently are building. I have the same kit that is on the MUST DO list for my wife. I have never worked with PE before and it is giving me some concern as are some reports that this kit has some flaws that need to be dealt with.

Hello Lou


I will consider starting a build log, even though I am unsure that would be ok, as the build was already started somewhere else.

Thanks for the interest!

   The kit for sure has some flaws :)

Firstly, it is an old kit, with its big big fit issues and very bad mouldings.

Secondly it is NOT correct in MANY ways, and lacks much detail (as it is an old kit) compared to todays standards.

  The kit does in many parts depict the Olympic, more than the Titanic (mainly the outlay of A-deck or "promenade deck" below the Boat-deck).

To turn her into a "correct" model of the Titanic, there are about 1200 corrections/alterations to be done :)

  You can read about them in "The Rivet Counter Tutorial" here:  http://www.rivet-counter.com/

This is a VAST instruction on how to fix all the problems/faults in this Titanic-kit ONLY, and improve it, all in 51 (fiftyone) chapters :P

   ENJOY ;)


Kind regards,

Byzantine dromon update. Masts and "spur" dry-fitted, yards temporarily in place with rubber bands, xylocastra (wooden castles) incomplete but put in place to see what they'll look like.

A quick update on Genesis’ progress.  The main saloon is nearing completion and is sporting an eclectic collection of sofas, chairs and assorted furniture items.  She also has a bar with bar stools, as well as a silver sculpture.  


Lots of work still to go, folks!

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.
