  1. Yes - I am getting the clear coat fog issues - Thanks for the info.
  2. Great work Danny. Puts my current efforts on the Tamiya 1/72 spitfire to shame .
  3. Can anyone comment on applying clear coats to models when living in the tropics? would humidity be a factor with clear finishes? Regards Richmond
  4. Follow this link https://www.artesanialatina.net/en/modelcrafts-initiation/427-wooden-model-ship-kit-san-juan-nepomuceno-s-boat.html
  5. The micro clear coat forms part of microscale set from BNA
  6. Looks good - that's a lot of decals and stencils - I noticed Plasmo used a hair dryer to assist in decal conformance on a very tricky area on one of the motorcycles he was building - I think there is a link on my Youtube channel. Will you be doing any panel washes?
  7. Thank you for the clarification - wish I had seen this before I stuffed up my trawler build and had to purchase another kit! Irrespective as CDW remarks this seems a delicate operation requiring great skill.
  8. Thanks - 'Ground' seems you are more than drilling - if so what are using to grind? as if you used drill bits to complete wouldn't the finish be uneven?
  9. On another model I really struggled with cutting out rectangular windows in that I couldn't get something small enough to sand the edges. May I ask how did you achieve this?
  10. Thanks Slog -for a very detailed and interesting log and fine photography as well. One thing I noticed when placing Eduard pre-coloured PE onto my spitfire build was there was a problem using CA in that it tended to attack the paint maybe I just wasn't being careful enough. Anyway after some research I have since gone over to micro crystal clear for attaching the PE - not sure if this will be robust enough over time. Love the console. Your dry brushing doesn't look bad to me - maybe a wash will darken it down if you are not happy with it? Look forward to more By the way I have located some links to other builds over at Scalemates https://www.scalemates.com/kits/eduard-11110-crusader--1067628
  11. Jo - Chuck talks in detail about sanding frames in his logs - I think he uses a black marker or pencil which marks off areas to be sanded and not be sanded
  12. Love this guys videos https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCG0ZCl2VfG9PcCJyucWJR3w
  13. Another 'beginner' video - as step up from the first one I posted

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.
