  1. Hello,i build now this kit of OCCRE San Ildefonso.I make now the deck planking. I am in the second deck,but the planks 1mmX3mmX700mm isn't enough for all decks...i need more planks...is that happent in your ship IoannisZ ?

  2. hello sjors, yes it was my choice to copper the hull, and i know you have finished san ildefonso i have read your topic 1000000 times
  3. well...today I finished copper plating the hull and the rudder, and I applied a first coat of blue patina, the result after one hour was this
  4. and some photos of the copper plating, i used copper tape and a riveting tool to simulate the copper plates, this weekend i finished one side
  5. and some photos of the paint job, as you noticed i decided to add aftermarket cannoports cause i had a majot problem to build the frames perfectly square
  6. Hello guys, i started this ship at January 2016 and after a long brake period i decided to finish it here are some photos of the progress so far
  7. hello to everyone. i am thinking to give a try to make more realistic sails for my San Ildefonso i have the sails plans from the kit and scanned images from the book ''The Seventy-Four Gun Ship by Jean Boudriot Vol.3'' fortunately i know how to use photoshop, so i tried to resize the images from the book to my kit plans but i see a lot of differences to the proportions of the sails. when the bottom of the sail is 37.5cm the top is a lot shorter (no1 & no2)....so i tried to distort the sail from the book to meet the proportions of the kit sail..... i really dont know how to continue, if a leave the correct proportions do i have to make shorter yards ? should i continue with distorted sail ?? sorry for my English, i dont know if you can understand me well...
  8. I reaaly liked the brichwood black brass, in the midlle i rubbed it with paper after a one minute bath, and on the right side i rubbed it with steel wool
  9. i have done my best. i am not a very experienced modeller. thank you

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.
