  1. Hi everyone. Try use water with citric acid. It cleans all the oils and grease off of parts to be blackened. Immerse parts in the solution for about 10 - 15 min, simmer from time to time, rinse with clean water, let it dry and you are good to go with blackening. Use disposable gloves or try not to touch the parts with bare hands. I get perfect results every time.
  2. Hi everyone, That is correct. I contacted them recently asking for english instructions because my kit had Russian only. They sent pdf's in english no problem. They also suggested to buy kits directly from their site. I checked and it comes much cheaper than buying elsewhere and you get the highest spec kit with english instructions. Also Avos will be available internationally in two months time and they are working on two new kits already. Peter

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.
