  1. Thanks for the nice comments! Concerning the wood, just a good sanding. The one in the background, well, she is the Fly. Will try to find some time for good pictures of her, but one to give an impression!
  2. 'Long time ago', I promised to show the finished model of my Lady Nelson. Well, finally, here she is!
  3. Yes, Thomas, I nearly finished the rigging. Expect new pictures soon. Thanks for the comments. There are a lot of nice examples on this forum that can help you!
  4. Gregor, they look lovely and in the right proportions! My Lady Nelson is armed with 3 pdr guns but I decided to replace them by Caldercraft 4 pdr guns. Compared with the historical models, the 3 pdr guns look very small. Moreover, I don't like the metal carriages supplied with the kit. For a decent rigging, the wooden carriages are more easy to handle! Peter
  5. Thanks for the nice words! This forum is a great help for me to achieve this result. Also the pictures of historical models, for example in the National Maritime Museum, give a lot of inspiration. Now, I'm going to concentrate on the rigging.
  6. Hello everyone, This is my modest attempt on the excellent HM Cutter Lady Nelson kit. At this stage, the hull is almost ready. Inspired by some outstanding examples in this forum, I decided to add some nice little details. I do not have much time to send many posts to show all progress. So, the next post will take a while... Enjoy the pictures! Peter

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.
