  1. This idea might have come up here before but I hope this helps someone. There are always tedious little things to do in this hobby so when I come across an idea that can help speed things up it's worth sharing. I am up to the stage in my build of rounding the bottom of the Balusters to 2mm dia (there are 34 to do) and the instructions says to round them with a file. Well...I found a small collet that comes with my Dremel and used that to round the Balusters. 👍
  2. Thank you all for the helpful advice. I already have the balsa wood and a couple of dimensions from the drawings to start. Wouldn't it be great if there was a CAD drawing of it....Anyway I'll start with the framing then do the bow and leave the hard part till last.
  3. Thank you for fixing the title of my post. I'll have to scratch build these two parts. Part 18 at the stern will be challenging. I purchased the kit privately from someone that did not have the time to build it. The box which the kit came was in plastic so it was not tampered with so no fault of the seller. Yep, Artesania Latina are no more. I have little chance of getting these parts. The parts in question look to be molded. I am not worried about the part at the bow it's part No 18 at the stern.
  4. Hello everyone, I don't know where to post this I hope I am in the right place. I am new to ship modeling and I have been waiting to buy my first model for a long time and I finally did the HMS Endeavour by Artesania Latina 1/60 scale. Now...I have a huge problem. The kit is missing two parts. Going from the parts list it's part No 17 (Fore Crotch) and part No 18 (Alt counter) I'm just wondering where I can get these two parts from? Can anyone help please. Ed
  5. Hi All. New to the forums. Just a question on subscribing for the Deagostini HMS Victory. I live in Australia and I'm wondering if this is still possible here in Oz? Thanks for your replies. Ed.

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.
