  1. Impressive work. I am going to sound a dissenting voice, but I like the picture of Jupiter better. It would contribute to make the whole set-up more realistic, IMHO. Hubert
  2. What to say other than I am in absolute awe of your machining skills and ingenuity ? Excellent work seems a bit lame for a compliment. Hubert
  3. Another amazing build and fantastic detailing. Love what you have done with this one ! Hubert
  4. Yes, but which one is it really ? The first one, or the second you bought because you could not find the first, or the third because both the first and second of the same had disappeared 😉 ? That the one who has not multiples of the same tool throws the first nail at me 😁 ... Hubert
  5. My workbench (used essentially for 1/32 plastic aircraft models) used to shrink to the usual free one-square-foot. I have invested in Hobbyzone (hoobyzone.pl) modules, and my modelling life was changed. Now, part of the discipline in modelling is to end up any session (admittedly not as frequent as I could wish) with a cleaning and putting back tools in their right place. It makes modelling so much more enjoyable, especially when you start every time with a clean (and orderly) bench . Hubert
  6. You’ve been away from MSW for some time, Doris, but certainly not idle ! Wow ! What a return ! Tremendous progress, and always so beautiful ! I am sorry I cannot contribute more to your thread with more than praise, but your talent is way above my own modelling skills 🙂 Hubert
  7. If it was ever possible, you keep besting yourself ! You certainly did with these gratings 👍 ! Hubert
  8. It’s great to read that efforts to explain issues, and educate people about implications and impacts of certain behaviours have paid off. It also shows that, when informed politely and quietly, a lot of people will react positively and in good faith. So much more positive than pretending issues don’t exist, or escalading fights on social media. Heartfelt congratulations to Chuck for his efforts, and to Tom for changing his business practices, and Mr Berti for entering into these negotiations. As a side note, I went to visit CAFmodel’s website after this post. I could see that the pages linking to the Ancre-based models are inactive atm. I also saw an aircraft page, with a 1/32 SG-38 wooden model : most likely I will order this one sooner rather than later, and would never had considered such an order before. I hope that Tom will conclude from my little experience that behaving fairly can bring additional business ! Hubert
  9. Wow, Doris ! I had been totally impressed by your Royal Sovereign seen on a paper modelling forum, but this one promises to be even more jaw-droppingly good. Your talent is simply out-of-this-world. Hubert
  10. In my eyes, the J-class is still the epitome of racing yachts, and you have rendered true justice to this classic among the classics. She looks sleek, beautiful, racy, even sexy ... A master achievement you can be proud of. If I may venture a small criticism, the cradle you have chosen, whilst justified for stability reasons, looks a bit « heavy » and spoils a little the fantastic lines of the hull. A fantastic result nevertheless. Well done ! Hubert
  11. Impressive work evidenced throughout this thread, and even more impressive finished result. VERY well done 👍 Hubert
  12. Absolutely unbelievable craftmanship ! All I can say is WOW ! Hubert

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.
