  2. Hi It's a kit from Caldecraft, " à suivre donc .... Thanks for your interest ! Alain
  3. My work on the HMS Agammemnon is progressing smoothly.I was not satisfied with the stern decoration of the kit, elements that were separated and glued without any link between them, lack of decorative parts, etc ..This is my attempt at modification which I am submitting to your appreciation. The lanterns are still missing.Thank you for your comments,Have a nice day,Alain
  4. Hi again Thanks for your kind welcome, I am not an expert photographer, but I will post a few pictures from time to time. Here is two photos of our little town. It was almost 40 °C today ! Alain
  5. Hello from Provence, I retired a few years ago, I was an osteopath, and my wife who has now also retired was an English teacher. I finished Caldercraft’s HMS DIANA a couple of months ago and I have just started working on HMS AGAMEMNON, also a Caldercraft model. I have made other models, COREL ones, but while I was working in the clinic, I had very little spare time to devote to my models. We live in Provence, not far from Avignon, in a town house with a rather small but very pleasant garden. The elder of our two sons who is a mathematician and statistician will be forty next autumn and our younger son is a musician. Neither of them is a model maker … The Caldercraft models have fine dimensions and they are quite complete and well designed ; yet they are not always perfectly accurate historically. But as kits, I know of no better ones. I am very happy to be able to join this forum, I thank you for accepting me. I wish you all a very pleasant weekend. Best regards, Alain

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.
