  1. First, let me say I am new to the message board/website. If I have posted this question in the wrong place pls let me know where to post it. I am working on HMS Victory based on a kit by Corel, 1:98. I am not using much out of the kit. I am really puzzled by the hull ornamentation and some fittings. They are made of pressed wood fiber. I have attached some pictures to give you some idea of what I'm talking about. These seem to be extremely fragile/brittle. I have no idea how to use them, bend them to there proper configuration for installation. I have emailed Corel, but have not received any response. Any help/suggestions/guidance/ideas would be appreciated.
  2. I am in the early stages of building HMS Victory. My wife bought me the Corel 1:98 kit over twenty years ago. About ten years ago I started it and got the first layer of planking. I was not happy with the results so I put it aside and just recently decided to start all over again. I am building this iteration pretty much from scratch, about all I'm going to use from the kit are the fittings and some of the material. Wish me luck! I'm going to post my first question shortly. I have joined several ship modeling sites so you may if you visit multiple sites you may see me elsewhere too.

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.
