  10. Hello All, Thanks for the comments and Likes, as always very much appreciated. well things are moving along very nice and a steady pace. As the wife is away i have the place to ones self, 🤐 so i thought i would sit back watch some tv and do a few small parts ( no cleaning up yet). Anchors, well this has baffled me at the moment, as instructions said reference plan sheet 5, i have been though most sheets and not found any info on Anchors, and even the rigging of then.. is anyone able to shed a bit of light on this.?
  11. Hello All, Thanks for the comments and Likes, as always very much appreciated. Well Been a few months since the last update, I have Completed (almost) Lines, Fore and aft, Starbordside atm. Could not be bothered at the moment to do the main mast lines. (Fore )I could make a few improvement, as this side is not the viewing side. Hard part was making sure lines are same length and level. (Aft- Starboard) Really Happy how these lines came out.

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.
