  1. I did. I found them on clearance, lol. Seriously, though, thank you very much!
  2. Thank you! I want to build a Char B1 Bis eventually. Those were monsters. A lot of the early war allied tanks were behemoths, though. They were just too slow. But, they look neat.
  3. I made my trunnions. I made the pivot points that the carronades mount into. I now have to make a decision about my cannons. The eyebolts at scale would be too small to thread a breech rope through unless I use thread like I did on the gunport lids. If I don’t want to use eyebolts then I can make dummy eyebolts and wrap the breech rope around the cascabel, French style (yes this is a British ship, hence the debate).
  4. This is a Warlord Games R-35 Tank in 28mm scale. I haven’t wargamed in nearly 20 years, but the 28mm ranges are great sources of obscure subjects (and fun projects). The R-35 was an early war two-man tankette belonging to the French. The German Army liked them well enough to capture them and press them into service. This is a resin kit with metal detail parts. I assembled it a while back and primed it black. I wanted a quick project for today, because it is nice to occasionally make something that you can finish in a few hours (I can’t build multiple ships at the same time). I tried to make it look nice and muddy. I still have some detail painting to do. I’ve had fun painting it today.

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.
