  1. Thanks for the quick replies Chris, I am just thinking about what details I could add throughout the build. I am open to suggestions
  2. Thanks Chris What about the upper deck? loving your kit by the way. I have 2 months of work (no choice) so steaming ahead with this . One other question does she have any scuppers or such like to release the water from the decks?
  3. Hi I am just about to plank the decks but unsure as to what pattern they should be layed. Can anyone help? Thanks

  7. Thanks for the quick response Allen. I will be using the Victory model kit but I hope to 'enhance it' some what. I just like adding that extra bit of detail that make so much difference and increases the satisfaction of the build.-- if that makes sense I have been reviewing the build logs on here for the kit and have some ideas already..
  8. Hi I have almost saved enough pennies to buy my next build. Is there a recommended reference book I should buy I don't seem to be able to find a AOS for this ship?

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.
