  1. Looking really good! what did you use for caulking on the deck planking?
  2. Yeah these sponsors are legit. Some have active threads going in the community. Also start a build log, It's this communities bread and butter.
  3. It will be Razeed 44 for sure. If I recall correctly Somewhere in Chris's thread he talked about having a 1/64 and 1/72 Sir. Edward Pellew ready for casting.
  4. I can definitely agree about watching Chris's thread. When he finally gets around to developing the HMS Indefatigable I'm going to be bouncing off the walls.
  5. I used Admiralty Paint's Yellow Ochre on my HMS Snake. I added white and yellow to it and I got something between Vallejo's Yellow Ochre and Admiralty. Honestly go with what you feel because you are going to have to look at the model. Look at some of the other Victory builds on this site and you'll see a massive array of colors. Here is a link for a video about the color change.
  6. All of that is really top notch work!
  7. https://www.acrylicjob.com/custom-order I got a case from acrylicjob for only $150 CAD before shipping, I've had my Sherbourne in it for years now no dust or build up. I would recommend getting one after you do a thorough cleaning. It's most definitely affordable.
  8. God I love Master and Commander! I've considered this movie for color schemes. There are so many variables to consider with this seemingly simple aspect of ship modeling. Thanks everyone for you're input.
  9. Yes they are Both very good options and I've thought about that combination. I'm still going to keep searching a little bit for running rigging colors. #2 Aurifil 5011 Rope Beige is really close to Caldercraft's rope color.
  10. I've been Experimenting with different colors of cotton thread and would like to know what you guys think of them. I'm not quite sure about any of them so the search is still on. From right to left #1 Aurifil 5013 Asphalt. #2 Gutermann 3020 Seal Brown #3 Aurifil 4241 Very Dark Grey #4 Gutermann 1001 Black #1 Gutermann 2700 Khaki #2 Aurifil 5011 Rope Beige #3 Aurifil 2314 Beige #4 Gutermann 3260 Beige #5 Aurifil 2310 Light Beige Gutermann 3260 and 2700 on the belaying rack. I feel they are the closest but still could use something in between Here Is my home made rope walk V2, It does the job but by God does it make noise. V3 is still one the drawing board.
  11. Deck planking is in the works. I'm currently unemployed so I'll have some time to work on her over the holidays I'm reasonably happy with how it's turning out, Little bit regretful of not adding margin planks. Next build perhaps I will delve deeper.
  12. Nice job on the coppering! The extra glue can be removed by acetone (nail polish remover) or debonder.
  13. Hey Vane. If you want to add a signature go to your account settings at the top. Go to signature and within there is a button to link you're builds.
  14. I knew it! You made the right choice. HMS Diana is on my someday list.

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.
