  1. Rick, thank you for your kind comments. i have attached the web site I purchased both ships .I also bought plans for the SOS but the details supplied with the kits are quite good. https://www.model-space.com/us/model-ships.html Eddie
  2. Hi Rick, I finished the SOS last year and it is a beautiful kit. DeAgostini makes a beautiful kit and high quality materials. It was a very enjoyable experience. I find the Vasa a more complicated task but such a joy to work on. Eddie
  3. Finally at the point of fixing the gallery to the hull It doesn’t quite sit flat on the hull and I will have to make some adjustments later once it’s dried
  4. I have decided to put some balsa inside the gallery pieces to help to glue better to the hull
  5. Thank you Michael,I will see if I can get some of this here in Aus.
  6. Thank you Martin .It’s funny you brought this up as I was also thinking maybe putting pins in the hull to take the weight while the glue is drying. I appreciate your thoughts. It’s certainly an interesting part of the build now. eddie
  7. I got to the exiting time putting some of the carvings onto the roof area

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.
