  1. Some painting today. Must say this dark red paint looks very pink to me 😄
  2. Added a coat of sanding sealer/shellac. Will be using this as the finish of some parts and others will be painted.
  3. Not sure if its much of an improvement
  4. Well tonight could've gone better. I was unhappy with how this railing that the bowsprit slots through turned out, so I decided to try pulling it apart to do it again. Should've just left it. Broke of 3 of the corner ends as well as splitting pieces off longitudinally. Manage to glue most of the bits back onto the rail except for one corner. Now to recut the 3 posts and hope I get it square this time
  5. I really like the gun sleds that came with your kit as well as the etched transom piece. Much better than my renard kit
  6. The weeks progress. Fore-deckhouse and cabin. I looked up the names before posting this time lol 😅
  7. Hi Keith this looks amazing I was wondering what is it you’ve placed under the skylight grills, the blackish bit? You may have already mentioned and I might have missed it. thanks Tom
  8. Hi all this is referred to as a skylight in the plans. I assume the area under the brass bars would be glass???? Does anyone have a suggestions on how to get the right look? cheers
  9. Looks really good. Considering this kit for my next build. If I ever finish Le Renard, 15ish years and counting 😂
  10. Finished putting together this grating/hatch/deckhouse thing. I'm sure it has a proper name
  11. Sadly don’t have a drill press. Do have a pin vise and a dremmel

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.
