  1. This is a very well planned and executed beautiful build by an experienced craftsman! The hull and stern of this SR look spot on! I hope we may see some inspiring updates soon again. In the meanwhile, I’m ordering materials and downloading your drawings because of your build... 😌 Very inspiring!
  2. Very beautiful build that I'm following with great interest. I've always hesitated to buy the Heller HMS Victory kit as bad reviews about the rigging are around on the internet. But buying the wooden Caldercraft 1:72 kit I hesitate even more because of the price and numerous build hours only to come to the point where you arrived I assume a lot quicker and perhaps even more beautiful. But I read and see you used Caldercraft blocks for the side tackle. Are these in the correct 1:100 scale and are most or perhaps even all of the 'off scal' or wrong Heller rigging parts available from other companies like Caldercraft, which have the reputation of producing detailed, authentic and correct formed parts. I hope you post an update soon, I cannot wait to see more! Thanks, Frank.

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.
