  1. great job. if i didn't know, i would never know. keep up the great work. mort
  2. hi mark, i used adhesive cooper tape my mamoli connie which i completed about 10 years ago and it worked out fine. i first coated a portion of hull with contact cement and after a few minutes applied the tape - which i cut into individual plates before hand - and all was well. hope this helps, mort
  3. hi robert, a few years ago, another caldercraft victory builder - i don't remember who - on this forum in his build log posted that he with the aid of a computer program - sorry,i don't remember which one - reduced the ensign to the size where they would fit on the buckets. he then printed them on decal paper and was able to apply them to the buckets. hope this helps. please keep up the great work. mort
  4. hi michael, question. so i take it you did indeed trim parts #373 in order to get them flush with part# 270. thanks, mort
  5. it is a beautiful build. well worth all the time and effort. enjoy yourself. mort
  6. great job. a quick thought. why not cut away part of quarter deck and fore castle? don't plank them entirely, partially. it's a pity to cover/hide such nice work. you can even go as far as not mounting any boats mid ship. build them and mount them on the display base along side or being towed astern. any way keep up the great work. mort
  7. thank you for your kind words. so far i am very happy with the kit. she's big. very big. she's going to go in my son's office as the admiral is still very upset over the size of the diana. the lower gun port pattern and 8 planks are attached and i am hoping to have a fellow club member help me post pictures. mort
  8. i have the kit under my table and intend that as my next build, hopefully. isn't the aos of the uss constitution as she was during the 1927 refit? i also have the bass book " constitution super frigate of many faces second phase 1802-07. they use the corne painting of her at tripoli as a source. it's an interesting book. 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.
