  3. Hi Ian, I am new to model ship building having just finished BLUENOSE 2, I have now started on Corels UNICORN. The first problem was the slots in the bulkheads were to small to fit the keel, this has been fixed but when they are fitted to the keel none of them are flush with the top of the keel they all sit at different levels. Did you have this problem? if so what is the remedy, file them all flush? I would be gratefull for any advise you can give. Your UNICON is looking superb. Regards, Pomy
  4. Hi Zyxuz, I am a retired engineer { fitter/turner} and have just started making model ships. I have just finished making BLUENOSE 2 by Artesania Latina, this is my first model! The plans are very good, many coloured photos easy to follow. I am now building HMS UNICORN by COREL, I am having the same problems as you, slots in the keel and frames not wide enough, these were milled out to size as I have a small engineers lathe with milling attachment. When the frames are fitted on the keel every one of them sit proud of the top edge of the keel by as much as 5mm down to 2mm, should they not be flush with the top of the keel? also the plain frames # 5 7 9 11 are all too wide! Could you please advise me. Regards, pomy.

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.
