  1. Thanks for your thoughts. I have tried coloured back drops and it creates to many problems and detracts from the model. I'm never going to be able to reference the model with back drop
  2. Not sure if there will be any appetite for my models on this forum. No wood was harmed in the production of this model at 1/144 She is typical of the numerous Mackerel and Pilchard Drivers see around our coasts until the early 1900 when they were replaced by steam. The hull length was around 39' (12m) overall with fore and aft out riggers loa. 69.5' (21.2m) The boat is based on the Happy Return, a lugger which is still operating today from Penzance. The back drop of St Michaels Mount in the background was taken from the Happy Return by Len of the Mounts Bay Lugger Association http://www.mbla.co.uk/index.html

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.
