  1. middle gun port patterns are glued in place, i have glued gun port battens to both sides of lower gun ports. just have to check alignments and glue them in place - not as easy as it sounds. i have also made and glued the 2 side entry doors in place - thank you dominick - i think longridge mentions them also. the aos shows and longridge mentions that there was a small grate by the entrance doors which i have also made and will attach. the victory owners manual and the aos show a rectangular base which i will install beneath the mast collars at the main mast. since i can't figure out how much of the middle gun deck will be visible i will build the main and aft hatch gratings on the middle gun deck and perhaps the companionways both fore and aft of the main mast. hope everyone had a great day, mort
  2. since last post - no photos yet sorry - have completed planking middle gun deck - have to sand and varnish it- and have glued #270 - top gun port patterns - on both sides - thanks to glenard and roberts helpful posts. am also gluing battens - thank you glenard - around gun ports on middle #271 and lower patterns #272. mort
  3. thank you for your kind words my friend and your build logs - which I have followed from day 1. you are the best my friend, the best. mort
  4. hi, i have a question to other victory modelers. how much of the middle gun deck is visible once the upper gun deck and quarter deck are in place? i am asking because i am planking the middle gun deck and i noticed in the aos victory that within the planked area there deck is furniture - hatches, a capsan, etc. - and i am wondering if i should add that to the model even though caldercraft does not. thanks, mort
  5. thank you robert . i have been following your build since day 1. it's been a great resource. did more fairing and started planking the middle gun deck, - 5 butt method- am using maple planks as i did on the diana i prefer maple the caldercraft supplied tanganika. will post pictures as soon as i can. if any one wants to see progress feel free to send me a pm with your email and i will be happy to oblige. hopefully my son or my brother in law can show me the way. mort
  6. did a little work tonight. faired and beviled the hull frames and made a template for the the port side floor of capt. hardy's day cabin which i hope to be able to display along with the port half of his dining cabin and the masters cabin. mort
  7. hi guys and gals, after many many to many years of following i have decided to post a build log. i bought this kit in 2006 along with the snake and diana. i finished the diana last fall and started the victory in march after completing the duke william. to date i have lower gundeck, dummy barrel strips, stem, keelson and frames attached to the keel. i am working on beveling bow and stern frames. as soon as i figure out how to post some pictures i will and once i do please feel free to comment on any and everything you wish. thanks, mort
  8. hi kevin, quick question. i noticed on p 42 on the upper deck A7 #33 of mckay he mentions a steam trunk. any idea what it is? thanks and keep up the great work. mort
  9. hi kevin, the rudder looks great. pardon my ignorance but what is holding the outer part of the rudder chain? is it another eyebolt? thanks, mort

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.
