  1. fantastic build and log, thanks for sharing. I have this kit on the shelf and your efforts are both inspirational and a little bit intimating. Well done and lots of help for the novice. Malcolm
  2. Perhaps ac stencil might work

  3. Interesting discussion about decals. In my experience decals require very specific techniques, including correct preparation of the surface, and various chemicals to obtain really good results; and that is on plastic/styrene. I don't know how decals would behave on wood. Larger decals can increase the difficulty in my experience, and the potential for error. Chuck is spot on, poorly applied decals look awful and are the first thing the eye will focus on. I think that paper, card, PE, others metals, resin, plastic and decals can all have a place enhancing wooden scale models. It will be very interesting to see what Chris eventually decides. Malcolm
  4. First time checking in on your build. Excellent work. Are you past the 50 hour mark yet!!! Malcolm
  5. Cleat pack great idea. Deck looks fantastic. Extremely impressive effort getting the laser producing items of this standard only weeks after purchase. regards Malcolm
  6. Congratulations Chris on your second kit. What a fantastic and exciting time in this hobby with your entry into kit manufacture. I plan to purchase another kit from you , but have to keep my powder dry & wait to see what exciting larger ships come on stream next year. Very much looking forward to what is next. regards Malcolm
  7. What about the CSS Alabama for an idea?? Great example of sail/steam transition era, maybe a welcome change of pace for you Chris?? Might be a hit with the larger US market?? Malcolm
  8. Wow, great update, this really looks a wonderful build and sets a very high standard for model ship kit manufactures.
  9. Excellent posts Chris, you really are an expert. I very much enjoy your posts and the comments of other followers. Your speed and volume of work is amazing.
  10. I agree, my Alert arrived all the way to New Zealand safe and sound (very well packaged). The kit contents and instruction manual look fantastic. Congratulations Chris on this kit. What a great start. Malcolm
  11. Ordered the Alert today despite having the Amati Revenge on the shelf, a 3/4 built Caldercraft Mars on the work bench (and the artesania latina Endeavor in the bin) but felt support of Chris and his efforts was something I'd like to be part of. I'll state publicly that I will complete the Alert. It looks a little beauty. Malcolm
  12. Very handsome looking ship, great scale and excellent quality, its certainly a kit that I would purchase as a novice, and kit I would be confident of completing (I spend more time researching than building, I'm ashamed to admit). Malcolm

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
