  1. I suggest you prime (if you didn't) and use Mr. color leveling thinner to thin Tamiyas paints, I assure after that you don't have any problems of paint peeling off anymore! The leveling thinner makes the paint so much stronger and with good primer is a damn good combination.
  2. Thank you for your couraging words! Fun ride, even though at times the sheer ammount of work can feel a bit overwhelming... What's next? Hmm.. a carrier? No, gonna be something small and cute just to clear my head! 😋
  3. And we have reached our destination! Tamiyas old model brought back to life with the help of Pontos and Infinis and some special sauce from my own hands!
  4. Just fold them. It's best to fold them in a hold and fold using a sharp knifes blade to do the bend so it comes as sharp as possible.
  5. Just search it for from your hobby shop. Atleast freetime has it https://freetimehobbies.com/gator-grip-hobby-acrylic-glue-original/
  6. Gator Grip white glue is worth a try. It works really well for PE doors and other details you want to adjust. Though you need to be patient with it as it can take over 15 minutes to cure so you might "adjust" the part unintentionally!
  7. Thank you gentlemen! Just a few launches to finish, some final detailing passes and we should be guchi! Fairly fast 6 months with all the detailing in mind though! 😁
  8. And prolly the last update before finishing! After seeing this I knew exactly what I wanted to have on the helipad! Only one I could find in 1/350 for the moment was a Sea Dragon from Orange hobby so that had to do! The chopper is made of resin and some PE details. I dressed her up with my own details including grab handles wires etc. details. And on the deck! Had to move the Pioneer a bit and added one deck equipment tractor.
  9. Some minor stuff before the great end! Some finished liferafts and a bushmaster. Some launches. It's getting there!
  10. I would if I actually made a sea base for it! In my opinion displaying the ship like I do doesn't really fit into it. Atleast in my opinion. If doing a simple diorama then hell yes!
  11. If you look at real pictures of the ship you can see that there are 2 types of railing. Solid and ones with wires running through them. The ones painted black are simulating the wire ones.

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.
