  1. Hi Mark, I fond your log just the other day, very impressive work and a nice documentation!! I’m also building the Vanguard 1/72 (though from Victory Models/Amati), after fairly slow start (been working and traveling a lot, but I'm now retired) I have and have come to about the same stage of completion ea. the second planking and trying to get the stern gallery in place. which is easier said than done. I see you have so far been quite busy, and have advanced much faster than I have been able to. So I'm sure that I will soon be checking how you have solved all issues and problems that seem to come up. Björn
  2. Hi Pete, Björn here. Your log is very interesting (and helpful) and it looks great! I bought the Vanguard kit from Victory models about a year ago, The process has so far been kind of slow as 'normal' 10-12 hours working days seem to taken up most of my time. As of about a month ago I have however become a part time pensioner, now only working three days a week. So now i hope that i will be able to advance a bit more swiftly. Just now finished the first planking and starting to look at how to fit the gallery pieces together. Cheers Björn
  3. Extremely well built! I bought the kit about 6 month ago and I'm now in the mist of finishing the first planking. I agree with that the MDF is an excelent material to work. I'll sere if I decide to start documenting the process on Modelshipworld. Björn

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.
