  1. What Carl said! Also Jamie at Sovereign hobbies in pretty much the absolute expert in RN Colours, I’m happy with near enough
  2. Continuing with the superstructure. The PE is fantastical accurate down to .1mm ledges for the folds to sit in, but I’m not a fan of the doors which are clunky
  3. Now, some tank photos with Strasbourg in the background (would have made a great diorama.
  4. So some aftermarket resin capstans (kit ones are atrocious on every single kit) some anchors chains and I can start moving aft.
  5. So the PE begins, about 80 or so pieces so far just for the focsle
  6. Lower hull, I oversprayed some primer so I could watch some panels in (as usual the lower hull is smooth), a boot strap sprayed in then the lower hull. I won’t weather this one as she only got a couple of years service before being scuttled.
  7. Skeleton of the ship done, couple of hundred portholes to drill out and city out the hangar space. the plan is now to work up the lower hull before I start on the PE
  8. And it starts. A quick trip down to the hardware store to get a hardwood Plank for a base.
  9. Sorry, should have been clearer. The PE set has done very nice upgrades for the kit guns. The 3D printed stuff stands alone, but you can purchase them with or without blast bags (she had the in 1942 so o chose option 1.
  10. Probably the same problem I have as the shipping costs more. The PE for the guns is amazing too so I’ll trial it on the aft guns
  11. Yes he’s very good, I’m at the stage where it’s supercedes PE but it just becomes a very expensive exercise after a while.

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.
