  1. sure would be wonderful to know if this masterpiece will progress........
  2. oops...i stand corrected ....i had been looking at the kits from china, and got mixed up.......thanks.......
  3. one thing i may add....i'm using basswood which i have left over from other kits, but i don't like having to stain wood or use minwax polyshades....it is so hard to get an even color....i even tried pre stain......so i just have to accept the way they came out i can't afford to buy nice hardwoods........all together i think they'll end up lookiong ok.......
  4. very kind steven......got the messy dirty gluey stinky stuff done....all the finishing should be relaxing work......that is until i start the trireme after finishing these.......will use plans from the trireme trust if i can figure them out.......so that's still up in the air.......
  5. added some decoration to the phoenician, and have made the storage seats for the viking....hmmmm...should have painted the innards of the roman flat black....pretty soon i have to figure out rigging which will likely result i my pulling out the remaining hairs on the top of my head......there's gonna be a lot of mickey mousing
  6. use the firs two...the little one is only 3/4'' wide or under 10mm....quite handy for small models ...cheers....vic
  7. just completed the planking on the viking ship.....very difficult to figure out how to fit the planks evenly ...i couldn't....but i don't think i gave it enough pre-measuring time..hope you can do better....lots and lots of measuring before gluing....get lots of tiny clamps like the miniature ones in the stationery store....and make sure you temporarily reinforce the first v shaped bulkhead at the stern....it will break very easily.......good luck
  8. what happened to the viking ship??

  9. gads....this build is way beyond my ability or patience ๐Ÿ˜ฒ....super...........
  10. gosh ...lucky you.....we use a wood stove and a pellet stove, not to mention that i do my building in the house...haha...actually, for small stuff, in the living room so no case is no option๐Ÿ˜€......she's just soooo tolerant .....cheers.....vc
  11. yes yes super dave.....but you gotta have a case.....i made one where the end acrylic slides up for easy access....works great....you could use glass if weight is not a problem
  12. made some stands, and the greek penteconter hull mostly complete....ha...noticed i did the stitching incorrectly on the egyptian hull...should have been horizontal instead of vertical...c'est la vie.... will finish the hulls of the roman and viking before doing the finishing on all the ships....and then i'll think about the trireme..... how about this fellow Lodewijk Crijns from holland who sent me some info....quite impressive ....scroll down to find ship photos..... http://bennosfiguresforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=18962&start=140
  13. hmmmmmm......it's amazing how many people start builds, then disappear without an explanation or a good bye....

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.
