  1. Hi I love the idea of different colour schemes such as yours. It does make me wonder how the kit manufacturers decide on the recommendations they make. I guess they are as much in the dark as the rest of us and just do what they think - unless they have some documentary proof. With the Victory, it will be possible to take colour samples on original timbers to get a good idea of the original colour scheme, much as they do in historic houses. I imagine virtually all the other ships will be speculation to differing degrees. No doubt the appearance of a ship will change over time as repairs and repainting is carried out in service so anything goes. That's my theory at least and it allows a Captain to do as the Admiral pleases (well that's the case in the Navy I'm in.........) Geoff
  2. Hi Just a further comment on the use of roots for knees. I believe that trees were 'shaped' as they grew to form the basic shape for a variety of uses in the construction of a ships hull. I've no idea of how this might be done but it indicates the timescales they were working to were very long - decades. That's serious forward planning! Can anyone confirm this - or have I been dreaming?? Geoff
  3. Hi This is a beautiful build of a beautiful ship. Congratulations - you must be very proud of her! There is one thing I've noticed - and I'm really sorry about this - but on the stern, you appear to have transposed the two acanthus leaf(?) decorative swirls situated at either end of the windows to the cabin on the quarter deck. I've thought long and hard about raising this but the quality of what you've done and the attention to detail you've shown suggests its the kind of thing you would wish to attend to? I hope I'm not wrong!!! - if I am - I'm sorry!!!!!!!!! Geoff

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.
