  1. One thing to do is not use a sanding drum on my Dremel and sand other pieces of the same stock but collecting the sawdust in a small dish. Mix in some white glue and now you have the exact match for your wood. PVA glues do not sand that well so it would be good to find some other type of water soluble glue. HTH
  2. I believe that only Panart made a Royal Caroline kit. It was a good build.
  3. I really would love it if other kit manufacturers would try to build the model from the kit. Every so often, I come across something that makes me wonder - did they actually try to do this?
  4. If you are airbrushing, Tamiya acrylics can be thinned with standard hardware store lacquer thinner. A lot cheaper than Tamiya thinner. This also works with Gunze acrylics (Mr Hobby). Don't even think about trying it with any other acrylics unless you like a big gooey mess.
  5. Did AcrylicJob also provide the base? I am working on one for my Royal Caroline and it will have to be 36" x 27" x 12" - rather large.
  6. Those old kits are starting to resurface these days. I am currently working on a resurrection of the Billings Danmark (3 of them!) Best of luck
  7. That is some serious equipment. Very well done.
  8. A full build log can be found at: http://www.modelshipwrights.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=242693&ord=&page=1 HTH
  9. Very nice work. I like the look of the decks. For more info, go to http://combinedfleet.com/ HTH
  10. For those who want to do this version in 1/350 - good luck. To the best of my knowledge, the 1/350 is the 1941/42 version. As for the wood colour - they used hinoki cypress and not teak. FWIW
  11. Great work - thanks for sharing. I am working on the 1915 version with the Trumpeter photo-etch. I think that I might chicken out with those torpedo nets

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.
