  1. The ships launches. Not that the kit ones are bad but I got two from Black Cat models which are 3D printed and they are just amazing.
  2. The Pontos set provides the Veteran models twin mount, it’s a complete swap out.
  3. The issue with staffing the ship means it blows out the cost by lots,
  4. The search lights are replaced and actually have little glass lenses which just look like toys to me, so I rather have them with a dark wash. the three shades of blue is quite growing on me, it’s very dark but looks quite real.
  5. Nope, I only did 2 of the lots and lots of 20mm. Almost finished the island.
  6. The remaining guns, the 20mm’s are now pretty standard replacements, the 20mm quad borfors were just horrible to build as the barrels are mismatched, but the 5 inch singles are very easy and nice. The kit plastic blobs are painfully inadequate
  7. Island painted, Navy Blue flat blue highlights blue grey overspray. next filters then weathering.
  8. The 5 inch guns, (Kit on the right) and the upgrade with the Pontos set on the left.
  9. Paint cue, Primer added to 30 life rafts with extra strapping for the undersides of the catwalks. The kit provided ones are rubbish so I got North Star ones, and 5 star have the tie down straps.

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.
