  1. Hi Steve 

    Was looking for a victory build and stumbled on your victory log,  was blown away fair play on a wicked build,  I've now inspired, bought the Panart Victory and will be starting it in a couple of weeks,  so cheers for the log mate and I hope I can call on you if help is needed. 



  2. Hi Dave I'm ready for another vic considering the Calder craft
  3. Thanks for the comments guys the cub is an absolute buety to fly but only after a lot and I mean a lot of experience I started by flying a foamie orientation was my first hurtle (what way up was it ) after concurring that I soon discovered I'm short sighted (others seemed to fly far away and I thought how can they even see that) after a trip the opiction I purchased some glasses solely for flying later I purchased some ready made almost ready to fly balsa planes the acro wot being one of them people from the uk will be familiar with this plane such a buetifull flyer I later purchased the acro wot xl and hey that thing is the best flyer I have then it was time to maiden the cub ,what a relaxing flight and lands like a dream everyone in my flying club adores seeing the big bird which has a good number of successful flight under her belt such a joy to fly
  4. Allow in the model ship building world at 37 I may be considered young in the computer world I'm still old school in the past week alone I've stormed out of mc Donald's in a huff after not being able to work the self service till and walked out of the local builder supplier after being asked data protection to buy a plank of wood
  5. Jack your a gentleman I was panicking there
  6. Thank you so much chuck my apologies for being so stupid
  7. Help jack or any other reading it's been ages from I've been on here I don't have a clue how to do the pm thing I really don't want to lose the log
  8. Just deleted my whole bounty build accidentally I was trying to mark as complete and choose the first option to edit or whatever came up it did warn me to be carefull this may delete the build etc.,I think the etc. Bit should be left out cause that prompted me to search further resulting in the whole build lost dam shame
  9. Marking this one as complete can't see me adding to it in the future thanks all for following I hope it has helped looking forward to my next ship build all you guys have helped a lot with your suggestions and encouragement many thanks steve

  11. Finally got round to my shore leave post of the piper cub it's only been a year apologies
  12. Hello all ive been away for a while from ship building as rc plane building has sparked my interest i thought i would show you all what to expect from a balsa plane kit and how i got on with my first build ,the build itself was quite quick built over the course of a couple of months and very satisfying to see a large airframe come together over the first few weeks ,at about half way into the build i joined a local flying club and knowing what i know now i 100 percent would not have succesfully flown her without there help ,over the course of the past year i have scaled her out a bit and now enjoy flying on a regular basis

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.
