  1. Gentlemen, my regards! Tell me, please, for what purpose was a small box made on the deck with windows (in the photographs I indicated an arrow)? What is it? Eugene
  2. BEFORE OIL after polishing (400,1500 and final 2500 sanding paper) AFTER OIL As we can see, looks good.
  3. Thanks for the feedback! We are trying for you, colleagues. The laser nails deep are half of material - 0.25-0.3mm
  4. Good day! I will show a few photos of one of the modellers, who is now building a kit of "Tender "Avos " This kit is made entirely of pear. On the boards there is an imitation of nails with a laser. This is our exclusive kit (art. MK0303PXN)
  5. This is very sad news. His books are on my table and every day I read, even fall asleep with his book. Thank him for his many years of productive work. I will always remember him

  7. Of course. In Australia, we have an official sales representative who has been selling our kits for a year.
  8. It is finished. gentlemen! Sales of a new kit of Tender Avos MK0303 began in Russia this week. In a month and a half we will be able to please buyers around the world. Some photos from first buyers ;)
  9. My regards! Question to colleagues. There is on the drawing an element of the Swedish cannon of 1780-1790 The naval cannon of Tornqvist`s sistem How it should look: A, B, C or else. I can not find a photo of this real cannon in internet. Colleagues, help me please.
  10. On this 22-gun cutter-brig Mercury сaptain Robert Crown, a Scotsman in the Russian service, attacked the Swedish 44-gun frigate Venus in 1789 and was able to capture a superior enemy. Then Robert Crown commanded his prize - this frigate Venus. Therefore, in the Russian archives there are drawings of this frigate Venus, which served in the Russian fleet. So, I do not think that in the Swedish archive can be drawings of the cutter-brig Mercury. Although, who knows .. Although the cutter was bought in England, it could have been built in another country. I guess it was built in Denmark. I have not seen a similar drawing in the English archives. But something similar I could see in the Danish archive
  11. For my part should be explained. The photo shows a model from the Central Naval Museum in St. Petersburg. Model cutter with a brig sailing. The figure is the god Mercury. 1/24 scale Model made in the 19th century According to the museum, this is the model of the cutter-brig "Mercury", which was bought in England in 1788, and which in 1789 captured the Swedish frigate "Venus". I found in the archives information that after the purchase in England, this cutter was immediately sheathed with copper on the Thames River in private shipyards, why its arrival in the Baltic Sea was delayed a few months from the plan That is why I have a question. On the one hand there is a museum model with clinker, and on the other it is known for certain that there was a copper plating. And where is the truth? My personal opinion is that - probably, the creator of the model was wrong when he made clinker. Sailing equipment on the model is shown as of the 19th century, not at the time of purchase of the cutter in 1788 P.S. Long stored in a warehouse in the basement. The condition is very deplorable. Now the model is under reconstruction in the museum.
  12. This cutter-brig served in the Baltic Sea. The sea with colder waters and the paint should be White Stuff, as you wrote.

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.
