  1. Excellent work so far! Your skill is most impressive. I was once in a discussion with John Tilley about this model. He remarked that this model is based on research at the MGM Studios library and bore no resemblance to any real ships and was hugely inaccurate. He also stated that that high stern castle could not stand. Yet, I have found references to show similar designs, and the kit components such as cannons, gun carriages, etc. are indeed accurate. I don't know if this model represents any particular ship but I believe it depicts many design characteristics of the period. Bill
  2. Excellent job! Did you sew the sails yourself or are they commercially available after-market products? Bill
  3. Wow! I have been modeling for sixty years but you have taught me several new techniques! Thank you! Bill
  4. Beautiful work so far! I do have one question concerning the forecastle bulwarks, though. Your model has them as solid structures but I have always seen them as opened, with the railing supported by pillars. Should the dark wood between the painted pillars be cut out? For example, look at the row above the green and white triangular markings. I wonder if the seven lighter and narrower vertical and slightly slanted areas are actually pillars or posts that support the red and white striped railing? Bill
  5. Stunning work! The Amati kit seems exceptional! Bill
  6. The first planking looks great! I have heard that this kit is not very accurate but it does seem to match the drawings I've seen. Bill
  7. I'm currently working on the defunct Constructo HMS Pandora (24) and have had a hell of a time trying to correct the bow. I would love to see a better kit of this historic ship! Bill
  8. I don't know . . . I have been reinforcing masts for over a decade and my masts still look great. Bill
  9. Beautiful paint job! What shade of brown did you use on the hull? Bill

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.
