  1. A model of modern Russian destroyer 'Varyag' (pr.1164 Slava Class) in 1/350 scale. This is the fourth ship of the serie 1164 Atlant (NATO Slava class). A guided missile destroyer in which the 16 tube launchers of anti-ship missiles bazalt stand out bringing to these class of ships a very characteristical looking. The built is based on Trumpeter's kit together with some aftermarket adds such as GMM set of photoetched parts (sold specifically for this kit) and tons of different stuff from my spare box. As a touch, I made the stern lettering of the ship photoetching by myself a piece of brass DIY. Hope you like!
  2. Nice ship you've chosen. It looks huge, I think you really will need to get a mooring on real pier! I'll follow your build. Thanks for sharing Oscar
  3. Hello @RGL Scale is 1:350 and there are no kits in the market (unless at this scale) for this kind of ships, so I tried to did a bit of scratch using mostly Evergreen styrene sheets and photoetched pieces from my spare box. I build it already a few time ago, so I'm unable to do now a build log. Nevertheless I did one, but in another Spanish speaking forum. You may check it here http://www.u-modelismo.com/foromodelismonaval/index.php?topic=1645.0 Cheers Oscar
  4. Thank you Nils @Mirabell61 for your kind comments! No, unfortunately stern and bow doors cannot be opened. When at the build I thought to do so, but I realized that It will complicate too much the project. For next one maybe Cheers
  5. A model of Russian landing ship 'Azov' pr.775 Ropucha class. Designed as a Ro-Ro with capability for beach landings. They can carry up to 450t cargo. The hull is built with wood and styrene while the superestructure is made of styrene and lots of photoetched details from diferent brands, most of them remains from other projects taken from my spare box. While building I've wrote a Build log in a spanish-speaking forum, for those who may be interested you may have a look here: http://www.u-modelismo.com/foromodelismonaval/index.php?topic=1645.0
  6. I've been following some topics on this forum for a while and I decided for now to stop being shy and start sharing with all whom may be interested my work here. Being passionate for modelling from childhood, I began building modern navy plastic kits and later on trying a bit of scratch and upgradings. Now I'm on historical vessels, so I'm a newby on it. I'm currently building the Charles w. Morgan based on an old Artesania Latina kit bought a century ago. I'm thinking to start a Build Log with my work on the Charly, along with other builds I have started. But being very shy, I prefer first to post some images of other finshed models on the gallery. Thanks for welcoming! Oscar Ballesteros

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.
