  2. Greetings from your northern neighbor And welcome to MSW
  3. Thank you everyone for the nice comments. (Carl, I'm not a fan of football. I also like peace and quiet). I have added some bolts in the upper wales. Bolts that remain visible on the inside are also fitted. So that it looks that these bolts run through the frame and the wale. And i have become the proud owner of some interesting books. First I will read and study before I continue to build
  4. Beautifully painted. I use CA glue for PE parts. This is indeed difficult, to glue everything neatly in the right place.
  5. My second order has also arrived. From Buyback Express in the USA via AbeBooks. I'm going to have a lot to read

  9. Indeed I'm not really that good with electricity so I bought a ready-made set. The disadvantage is that all lights are at the same distance from each other. That is why it is sometimes a puzzle to get the lights in the right place. cannon deck below Welcome on board Pieter

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
