  1. Deck looks good Chris. I also do not know how correct this is, but, looks the goods. Just don't muck up the simple sanding job! I have also sworn off 0.5mm planking or using anything under 1mm. For something different, I scraped my last 0.5mm deck with a 1" wide wood chisel. No going back, a much better result. Cheers, Martin
  2. You always seem to find such great videos. Thanks, much appreciated. Martin
  3. Hi Bill, Why not go for one of the earlier vessels that had an initial impact on the US revenue service. Absolutely choose one that has plans or some such available. You obviously know how to model. Choose well and start the build. I'll pull up the chair. All the best Martin
  4. Your Back! Love your work. Hats off to you
  5. Not so serious that we need to worry about a post from 18 months ago., Really!

    We have also not heard from Eddie (Eddie mate with the nodding parrot) from Melbourne. All three were very active members. One notices when they are not posting.
  7. Congratulations Bob, she really looks the business. All the best. Martin.
  8. Hi Bob, Glad you found that reference helpful. Ah, flags. I generally leave them off because I cannot get them to look realistic. The wave you achieved looks good though. Cheers, Martin
  9. Hi Bob, You could check Alexey Baranov's website and see how he attached the anchors on his HMS Cumberland. http://shipmodels.com.ua/eng/models/elite/cumberland/index.htm Cumberland and Vanguard are both 74 guns. Regards Martin
  10. Hi Bob, I for one am happy that you went overboard with the photo's. I confess that I too have been referring to your log on a regular basis. I am building the HMS Elephant option of this kit. (Rigging and masts not yet started) You, Glenn, Fake John Bull, and Arthur, have been invaluable. Thanks! One day I hope to post something that you all can use. Regards, Martin
  11. Hi Bob, Have you hoisted the Ensign? Is it nearly finished? Looks good. Regards, Martin
  12. You are correct, Steven. The dromon is elegant. Your excitement and pride justifiably shine through your commentary. Congratulations on reaching this milestone. Regards, Martin

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.
