  1. Thanks Sjors. Not sure about next build yet. Will have to be something smaller running out of room for displaying them. would like to build a frigate but the lack of space is a problem. Happy Christmas to you and your family also
  2. And the last few. Including where she's going to live. Cheers everyone
  3. Hello all. finally finished my Agamemnon after 22 months. the rigging wasn't that bad but not as much room as I thought there might be on such a huge ship. I'd like to thank Mobbsie again because whenever I got stuck I always checked in on his log, and that got me out of trouble. Here's a few photos. All the best. George.
  4. Hello everyone. I appreciate all the kind words I've had from you. Here's were I'm up to at the moment, not that much left to do really. A few mistakes along the way but enjoyed almost every minute of the build All the best. George
  5. Hi Sjors. I think these are the pictures you meant. Will try to get some new photos posted this week. Its a job to move the beast now to photograph it though.
  6. sorry I haven't posted for a while but here's where I'm up to at the moment. just started fixing the yards. recon ive got a couple of months left before launch, George
  7. Cheers Mobbsie, I thought about making the case myself at one time. But that's a definite no no. Thanks for the info mate, the measurements will tell me wether I can actually Fit a case in anywhere. Just stated fitting the yards will put a post up soon. Thanks again All the best George
  8. Congratulations on a fantastic job my friend. She looks absolutely beautiful. you've been an inspiration to me. I've about 2 month left on my Aggy now and without you to follow I think there's been a couple of times I would have given up. You say your going to display her in a case. couldn't let me know the details size, price ect. Once again well done mate and good luck with the next project. All the best. George
  9. Just finished ratlines. seemed to take forever. took ages to decide whether to leave them natural or blacken them. went for black in the end, even now can't decide if I made right choice.
  10. Good job on the coppering Sjors. I've forgotten what a massive job it was. Coming towards end of ratlines on my Aggie now, another massive job. Keep up good work. All the best. George
  11. Sorry its been a while, but personal issues have kept me away. Here's were I'm up to at the moment. sorry picture's aint that good but the monster takes a bit of moving
  12. Cheers Guys, Mick. Just checked out your Badger build, Excellent work my friend. I received the Badger as a Christmas present. Be a while before I get round to it but when I do I know which log to go to if any problems arise. Sjors. I use Vallejo Paints. The Stern as most of the ship is in Yellow Ochre 121 and Matt Black 169. George.
  13. Hello all. Reached a bit of a milestone in completing the Hull. It has taken me just under 8 months and I've loved ALMOST every minute of it. Hears a few photo's. Happy 2014 everyone. George.
  14. Great to see you have started your Agamemnon. Will be following every step of the way, can't tell you how much I've enjoyed building mine. Reached a milestone today and finished the Hull. Enjoy your build my friend, I'm sure you will. George

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.
