  1. Hi, time seems to fly by so quickly, one good thing about a workshop is you can walk away and when you return it's exactly how you left it. Going through a few medical issues at the mo, nothing to worry about but hoping to resume where I left off ASAP.
  2. Thanks for all your nice comments, I'm back in the workshop now after a long absence.
  3. Hi Kier, nope.......no gloves....................confession to follow on that nice copper hull I did.
  4. Haha, It's a great hobby Here's Gils link http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/485-hms-victory-by-gil-middleton-finished-caldercraft-172/
  5. Well this turned out to be an absolute mess, they just don't fit, even when filing down the windows they seem to protrude and they should have depth. I'll have to start this all over again with a different approach, looks like the only way i'm going to get some sort of depth is cutting out the window openings carefully just so they fit with some depth, risky I know
  6. Well spotted David It's not broken, the cannons are loose on their spindles, so all's good
  7. A little more progress on the stern, brass strips are proving to be a right pain
  8. I think Old Collingwood has a beast of a Camera my present is a little snappy one, exactly what I asked Santa to bring me

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.
