  1. Looking wonderful :) Instructions only in spanish? Thanks for sharing this! Cheers
  2. Welcome to heaven! I am also in Linköping :) Have the same background as you I would say. ie: Im a returning modeller. Cheers!
  3. Hi there Good luck with your new project Patience is the first thing you need. That can not be bought though I would say a bender could be nice to have, but you can come a long way with simply a small steel ruler and a razor blade for bending PE. Remember it should always be done on a hard surface, like maybe a tile or a small piece of glass. CA works fine. Another option is the acrylic Hobby glue from Gator Grip. It is a bit more forgiving and gives more time for placing/building your PE parts. Bigger PE parts can be placed with tiny amounts of CA to hold it in place, and then glued more solidly in place with for example the above mentioned glue. Any sharp hobbyknife would be ok, as long as the blade is small. There are special PE cutters, but I would say you can come a long way with simply a knife. Remember cutting PE should also be made on a hard surface (to awoid unwanted bending). Cheers!
  4. Wonderful idea :) Love it. Is this the 1/350 or the 1/200? Cant really tell from the pictures... Kind regards
  5. One thing is for sure...about 300 days in the atlantic will for sure take its toll on her underwater body. Some wathering there would be correct I would say. Other than that, not much. As a side note though: I am quite sure I read somewhere that only her port side was specially touched up before departure from Southampton. Maybe some faint, tiny rusty spots on her starboard side could be correct :) 300 days in that environment would be slightly seen I would say... Cheers!
  6. You are very correct Mike: Great video even though there are no subtitles Pictures speak for themselves. Thank you! Cheers!
  7. I guess the number on the back of it might be the interesting one....maybe :) Cheers
  8. Hej granne Welcome aboard! Cheers!
  9. OcCre has a new kit on the Beagle in 1/60 out now. Cheers
  10. Their more recent ship kits are very high quality. Cheers!
  11. Wonderful pictures, thank you! Do we know anything of the colors of the "dingys" and "lifeboats" of Standart? The yacht herself was black, but I recall having read somewhere that these were very very dark blue (and white). Any info on this would be wonderful. Kind regards
  12. Hi Nice build! I just wanted to tell you that the letters beneath the crowned king, is supposed to be: G A R S Looks like the moulding is a tad off from the manufacturer. G A R S is for: Gustaphus Adolphus Rex Sueceae (Gustav Adolf King (of) Sweden) in latin. Those letters are clearer on the actual ship. Cheers!

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.
