  1. Hello All I did some planking work on the I-400 Sub, this is the first planks layer, I intend to have 3 layers , the first is 3 mm to build the shape then the second layer will be 1.5 mm after some sanding , and this is to have a smooth straight surface for the model .. Then I will apply the final Layer using also a 3 mm thick Balsa wood to enable the refinement and corrections.. Below are some photos .. please feel free to add your remarks. Thank you
  2. Good Morning GrandpaPhil Thank you very much , I'm very interested in this model too and I keep gathering information about this weapon, I'll do my best to come out with something nice. Thank you
  3. Hello All I started Building the I-400 Class Submarine Model, which is a Japanese Submarine and were considered the largest submarines of World War II and remained the largest ever built until the construction of nuclear ballistic missile submarines in the 1960s. I got the Following Info from Wiki Each submarine had four 1,680 kW (2,250 hp) engines and carried enough fuel to go around the world one-and-a-half times. Located approximately amidships on the top deck was a cylindrical watertight aircraft hangar, 31 m (102 ft) long and 3.5 m (11 ft) in diameter. The outer access door could be opened hydraulically from within or manually from the outside by turning a large hand-wheel connected to a rack and spur gear. The door was made waterproof with a 51-mm-thick (2.0 in) rubber gasket. I plan to follow the same Tech. that I use in building Model Schooners and brigs. Here are some photos .. Thank you
  4. Good day to you all This is my second diorama, that i built from scratch using Foam, balsa wood, Acrylic colors and kitchen paper towels. I consider myself a beginner in building Diorama models, and relied on my knowledge in building scale ship models from scratch for the scale and painting issues. Actually, I found this hobby very interesting and enjoyed it very much .. working on details like waves, grass and trees .. to me , this is a relaxation time during building the scale boats .. I hope you like it , all your comments are really welcomed .. Thank you very much.
  5. This is my Third Diorama, to model a small fishing harbor, concrete dock, Trees and a small shop and a fishing trawler ... Weathering is applied

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.
