  1. Welcome aboard, I'm sure you'll get a lot from the site. Cheers, Medic
  2. Hi all, This build has inspired me albeit I'm not sure I have the confidence to scratch build one. Can anyone provide advice on a good manufactured kit in the same vein that I could give a go. Cheers, Medic
  3. Hi all, So taken have I been with following Popeye's Syborn trawler build that I'm now inspired to try my own. It is too ambitious for me to scratch build one, so can any provide advice on a good manufactured kit on the market. Cheer's, Medic
  4. Welcome to the forum Jim. Cheers, Medic
  5. Ok so to model a well kept cannon in good working order I should paint as suggested above. What about the smaller things such as chain link and metal strappings? Cheers, Medic
  6. Well having just journeyed through the forum it is fair to say that there are a lot of gifted and hard working modellers out there. Cheers, Medic
  7. The decks come up nicely, keen to see more. Cheers, Medic
  8. Hi all, Albeit I'm yet to complete a project/quite new, I was a little surprised to read through the threads and see such a high volume of modellers advising about painting the cannons. I come from an armour and resin figure back ground an have certainly used and like both Tamiya and Vallejo paints. But if the cannons are metal (brass or other) I was of the belief or misconception as the case may be that a patina was more appropriate. Cheers, Medic
  9. I for one will be very disappointed if this is as good as it gets................... don't kill the dream. Cheers, Medic

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.
