  1. Thank you Zappto! It is hard making a choice, especially when there are so many excellent choices - such as your beautiful Dutch Friesland! It's a beautiful ship, and looking great.... Looking forward to seeing your progress! Sargon
  2. Ahoy Mark! That's fabulous that you built the Royal Louis! I'm a very big fan of this design... I'll make sure to do a good inventory on the parts- thanks for the heads up! BTW, I love your build of the 18th century Spanish Galleon... it's such a rare subject to see modeled, and you are doing a great job! Sargon
  3. Hello Ulises!! I know how you feel! The Royal Louis has always been a personal favorite of mine as well. I just adore the Mid to late 18th century French naval design and ornamentation on this vessel... it is simply divine! Wow! You got an AWESOME deal on your Royal Louis too...Nice!! Love how everything is coming along my friend, GREAT WORK! Sargon
  4. Hello to everyone! This is the beginning of my build of the Mamoli Royal Louis 1:90 scale. After wanting this kit for a few decades now, and having been inspired by Ulises Victoria's fabulous build here on Modelshipworld, I am pleased to begin my build of this fabulous 18th century vessel. All the contents look great, and everything is still sealed from the factory. Fittings and wood look to be of a superior quality than my Constructo La Flore.... Will keep all posted here on all build updates! Sargon
  5. I got a Great Deal Ullses.... I paid $550 USD for it.... originally the seller had it at $750 buy it now, with a best offer I got it for $200 less... I feel VERY lucky... I'll post pics soon of the contents in a seperate new build... Everything looking great BTW!!! Sargon
  6. Lovely work Ulises! I'm very proud of you, as I'm sure so are all the forum members of your most excellent build of the Royal Louis! Your attention to detail is excellent! You inspired me so much, I had to order a Royal Louis from eBay this past week, waiting patiently now for her arrival.. Sargon
  7. Looking great David... And thank you for the update on your build... It's really turning out nicely Sargon
  8. Great job Steve! Really impressed and inspired! Keep up the great work... Sargon
  9. Hello Everyone! Been ill a few days, but wanted to update on the progress... I must admit, my first post did have tons of gaps, nailheads everywhere , etc But thank GOD, wood is very forgiving... I've sanded the model quite a bit now, and its still a work in progress, but I feel like the Black Prince, Machiavelli once said... "The ends justify the means".. I feel with hard work, and correcting the mistakes, I can get this model to look respectable, and even beautiful... with your advice, and help as well.. which is greatly appreciated... a SMALL update: I hope everyone is well... Your friend Sargon
  10. WOW! Now THAT IS BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you my friend for sharing this beautiful delight!! SARGON
  11. The Honor is MINE Old Collingwood I thank you very much! I started following your Greyhound. She sure is a fine ship, if I may be so bold. There's something about the earlier period of the 18th century that is so attractive in regards to these lovely vessels... Wouldn't you say? SARGON
  12. Thanks Geoff!! It's a pleasure making your acquaintance!
  13. Thank you Old Collingwood! It's a pleasure to be part of the family! Thank you Dibert55!! Ahoy Mark! Thank you VERY MUCH! It's a pleasure being amongst such esteemed, and cool, Ladies and Gents SARGON
  14. Personally, it looks great if you can scratch build the moulding, and can compensate for the inaccuracies and lack of instruction. Maybe try to get a better newer version on, ModelSpace, or on ebay. Sargon
  15. The Norske Love looks very beautiful.... Is this one fairly accurate to the original Danish Ship of the Line? Thanks! Sargon
  16. This is an amazing Model David.... Thank you very much for sharing it with us! I'm impressed with the full gundeck, with no dummy barrels! I like it alot! Have you had any more time to work on her? Keep up the GREAT work... better late than never! Sargon
  17. Beautiful model! Great job Snow! The quality seems really good... been meaning to try out an Occre kit.... Sargon
  18. VERY interesting indeed! These models look really good. Has anyone any experience with this company? Sargon
  19. Awesome looking Pandora models!!!! Great job gentleman! It's nice to see more Constructo Models being built Sargon
  20. Hi Steve, I don't have the plans for this kit. Have you tried writing Constructo in Spain? I don't have their email address handy, but they are online. BTW, nice score on the Enterprise! Sargon
  21. I've sold models on eBay before, and it can be rewarding depending on the type of model, the amount of time and money that went into it, and if people were willing to pay top dollar. It really depends on whats hot I think. Just my opinion. I wish you luck with your building and sales! Sargon
  22. Looking great! I'll be keeping an eye on this one for sure Sargon
  23. WOW! She really came out great. GREAT WORK! What's the next project? Sargon
  24. I picked up the San Juan Nepomuceno back in the early 2000s, and the kit was really good, even then. I think they have definitely improved, however, with the Santa Ana, the Hermione, etc... especially with wooden sterns, and lanterns with clear parts etc, instead of molded metal. Sargon

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.
