  1. Great work on the dry dock (and the cross section of course). The navy sail training ship, was this the Zenobe gramme??
  2. Congratulations, It is always a relief when all those holes are drilled and filled Beautiful work Ondras
  3. Looks like a home made build of The Golden Hind to me.
  4. Hello, The 2nd cannon is ready. All plastic parts come from my military partsbox, plastic sprue and strips. cannon installed, together with deck beams and knees. A ladder is also built. There is not much room left therefore she is placed between the 2 doors. And: My painting job on the house is ready. I don't like to work on a ladder, i start sweating and get the shaking in my legs. ( Dutch : Ik begin dan te zweten en krijg dan de bibber in de benen ). Thanks for following
  5. Euonymus alatus, known variously as winged spindle, winged euonymus or burning bush Snoeien. (Dutch) Bij deze heester beperkt zich het snoeien tot het weghalen van het aanwezige dode hout, het wegnemen van verkeerd geplaatste takken. Beschadigde of afgeknapte takken snoei je weg tot op een zijtak eronder (als die aanwezig is). Eventuele verjongings snoei: Knip de oudste takken laag bij de grond weg. Pruning. (English) With this shrub, pruning is limited to the removal of the dead wood present, the removal of incorrectly placed branches. Damaged or cut branches should be pruned to a side branch underneath (if present). Possible rejuvenation pruning: Cut the oldest branches low to the ground. Maybe try to remove all the dead wood. And pruning the good branches into shape. And then hope that the plant comes through.
  6. Nice workplace. You still have many models to build.
  7. Good luck, and welcome to MSW.
  8. Good idea to start with a small model. Greetings, and welcome to MSW
  9. Very nice work Fabio. In the 15th and early 16th centuries, there were indeed few ships that had a figurehead. And if they had one, then this was minimal and small.
  10. Thanks for the nice comments. I actually wanted to make wooden spoked wheels. In plastic this was possible, but in wood this was beyond my skills. Meanwhile : Backer is busy painting on the house A nice view from a height of about 8 meters

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.
