  1. Hey Tom...great! I would call it "a precision work"! Stay healthy Christos
  2. @DelF thank you very much for your quick and extended reply. I guess you are very much correct saying that nails in 1/48 scale are "virtually invisible", and that's (dont forget) on a dark coloured wood. So yes you are pointing out the obvious, which I should have had realised already. Still am thinking of using a sharp pencil and punching very thin nails on the deck planking, on which I got a very lighted colour wood, where I suppose the nails are more likely to be seen even in a very faded out fashion. But Derek, the most important point in your reply to me... is your building log. What a work! Congrats! Am going to spend some time on it, there are a lot of fine details worth looking at and its a great demonstration of a high level craftsmanship. Thank you for all your important help sir. Christos
  3. @Thunder thank you. @DelF what do you think Derek, treenails or no treenails? Is it too much for this scale? Its surely much of monotone work...
  4. @Kevin thank you very much... I hope I will enjoy it as you did.
  5. Hermione now sits in my library on a nice furniture covered with glass. Coronivirus lock-down continuous though things look much better. In the last days Cyprus marks single digit numbers. Actually I wasnt planning to start a new model so soon, but lock-down drove my hand to the cupboard where the R.Caroline kit was stored. A kit in a scale that I really desire to build... where details can be seen, I hope. Its my second ship of the 18th century. After Hermione I though the scale and the rich decoration of this ship, it can become a much enjoyable build. So am sailing again.
  6. Cannons look awesome. Metal black barrel finish superb. Detail of the wheels top. Rigging rope... fine. Very well made cannons... I think a master's work Tom! Christos
  7. Great! Congrats for completing this fine model by which as I can see you did well even with the smallest details What brought you back to the build after so much time.... 😀 ? Am guessing ... Great work again Christos
  8. @Tom E thank you Tom for your nice words. Am following you great work. Christos
  9. Psychotherapy, and the sails filling slowly with wind. Wish to all of you, all the best and an end to this catastrophe that came on us so suddenly.

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.
