  1. What a low rent bunch. Unfortunately, as juvenile offenders, not much can happen. I'd put them to work to pay the modelers, although a lot of what the club build will be irreplaceable. Good that Sir Rod is helping. He has a very nice model railroad in his house in Southern California and is a very proficient structure builder.
  2. That little guy the mechanic or the instructor, Jack?
  3. Looking good, Jack. And I like the way the decal fit on the prop. 👍👍
  4. I'd second that idea with a low stone wall in front of the cannon. Think Cushing at the Copse of Trees at Gettysburg, Day 3.
  5. Gotta tag along on this one, too. Another interesting aircraft.
  6. Your painting of that Buccaneer brought back a memory of that first Red Flag for the RAF. My squadron hosted the Buc crews for those 2 weeks. We flew cover/escort for them up to a range in Utah one afternoon. We started down a canyon thru a range of hills and followed them until the canyon got so narrow we were spending all our time avoiding rocks and not providing much cover for the Bucs. They both looked like they were flying on their shadows. We climbed a couple hundred feet and stayed below the peaks of that range, while following. Gained much respect for their skills that afternoon. 👍
  7. We have better weather up here in the Smokies (49F and clear, going up to 66 today. This is a tad brisk for mid May), but NC does have an income tax.
  8. Neat old airplanes. And the build video was great. Thanks.
  9. Denis, some nice fixes to the parts fit. Those older kits had issues there. The left cab seat would probably not get much use by the fireman. He'd be on the deck plates, tossing fuel into the firebox and watching the water level gauges. The fireman was usually the most fit guy on the crew because of all the work he did. Once you get the wheels on, the end caps on the pilot truck, the front set of wheels, would usually show some grease and oil ooze. Just dribble some black/brown around the caps, along with the faces of the wheels.
  10. I vote for Victory and Temeraire from astern also. Gives the reason why these two magnificent ships were "racing".

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.
