  1. The 1/32 Wingnuts version is amazingly detailed
  2. The interior has a lot of Pe replacement. Very nice and somewhat pointless as you can’t see it with the lid on.
  3. perfect surface on the hull for some chipping really plus lots of rust....
  4. Really tempted to build this but I have no skill whatsoever with solder, I’d have to use CA. You’re doing a great job so far. The hull plates really are quite quite large aren’t they will no rivets either! That would annoy the hell out of me. You seem to have it well in hand.
  5. I was thinking of using cut foam blocks.....
  6. If you’ve go to the Wingnuts Wings website, (this kit is Roden) and it has amazing detail of this aircraft and a lot more. Full rigging plans etc, makes you want to build one but they’re quite expensive for the big ones, thus trying my hand to see if I’m any good at the small stuff.
  7. Yep, that’s the plan and the challenge
  8. Well, the Cant Z501 is back in the box and the next seaplane comes out. Much nicer quality kit, plus some extras.
  9. So I'm flying along and discovered I'm missing a float. Can't progress until I find a replacement.
  10. Nothing lines up very well,this large scale stuff is hard!
  11. Yep, it’s a 1972 mold OK, even with the additional PE (you pretty much can’t see any of it when closed up. Lots of putty will be needed yet
  12. It’s so strange working at this scale
  13. I haven’t built a plastic aircraft since about 1980, which matches when this kit was a re-box of a 1972 mold. It’s not that easy to find at a reasonable price (it cost about $30 with postage) plus a bit of PE as I can’t help myself as usual. its going to be nice to build something a bit bigger than usual scale and compared to HMAS Vendetta a bit less fat fingers I hope.

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.
