  1. Hi Dirk, not sure if I have asked before, but the Vallejo primer and the Tamiya acrylic do they go well together? Vallejo being water based and Tamiya being solvent based I have had my doubts.
  2. Excellent work. Would love to see someone tackle a water diorama in a build log.
  3. Apologies if this was mentioned before but didn't Buster Keaton make a movie about the General?
  4. Dennis - maybe we have stumbled across a very small part of one particular mountain which in itself only forms a small part of a large mountain range!
  5. I purchased the blocks, sails and masts for the Wolf. I wouldn't want to tackle the card blocks that come with the kit. The masts not being kit supplied are a must unless you are able to make your own. The sails are a personal choice. Others on the site may choose the kit sails or make their own. There is a YouTube upload I did on the blocks if you refer to my Wolf build.
  6. The metallic finish is amazing - I had heard great things about the Xtreme Metals. I note you use Tamiya black as a 'primer' - rather than the Xtreme Metals primer - is there a reason for that.
  7. Apologies if I have posted in the wrong section https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyxzC5kqbyw I thought this was really neat - the only observation was shouldn't there be a lamp and diffuser at the top of the light box?
  8. This may be of interest to some http://www.finescale.com/~/media/import/files/pdf/d/9/f/quickeasyweathering.pdf

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
