  3. Hi to you all, I have all of a sudden had the problem of when replying to a message and I wish to move the page down as in a new paragraph I have to continuously press the space -bar to the end of that line and then begin. After pressing the submit button it usualy comes out all jumbled up, I haven't got a clue as to why kier
  4. Well Wallace, after your build so far (p40) and Harlequins quote (p41) has definatly pull up chair and follow along, even though I'm a bit late. kier
  5. I don't know how I have missed this log. Your Brig is looking beautiful, with many ,many great tips to make it so. I particularly love your photos of your building work a
  6. Hi Vane, Blimey, I can't believe how quick your building work is going. she's coming along nice. I love the hull work.
  7. I now realize that Druxey, that's one thing that will not be forgotten. ( already imprinted in my head) Cheers Kier
  8. Well I must say Nils and spyglass, you both have made things so much clearer too me, I new there was a certain way of doing it but didn't know how. Since being a member a good few years now I thought they were fixed in a totally different way🙄 Many thanks , kier 🙂
  9. Hi you fellow shipmates, can any one help me for in the future of possibly attaching brass pedestals to a model ship? It is something I have always wanted to do in the future so that in the future I could possibly display the model on perfect display in a glass cabinet. Sorry for asking but I thought it would be a subject that should be bought up as there are probably not only myself that doesn't know, but other builders. Any help would be most kind.
  10. HI Ricky, in response of the so called deck chains, rope and capstan . As we all know what a capstan is and what it's used for which is of course powered by sailors. I was anle to find out that the capstan is not only used for hauling heavy ropes but also for hauling heavy objects such as anchors. weather HMS Terror had chains to be used with the capstan for her I do not know. also I am unknown of her other ship which accompanied her on her on her arctic expedition HMS Erubus. so Ricky I am a bit stuck with being able to help despite looking at other build logs including scratch built. Sorry🙁 kier.
  11. In response of your question in regard of the capstan and chains, I myself have only known a capstan for the use of rope only,. you now have my mind ticking as to weather one or the other maybe perhaps both. I will try to find out, but if I can't find the answer maybe some other shipmate looking in on your they can possibly help. kier
  12. 'HOORAY' 😊 that's another 'HMS Terror', on the way. I will be sitting in the front seat to follow along as she is big and brutal ship. Good luck forward and enjoy. kier
  13. I only recently discovered your build of this mighty warlord, she's beautiful. I love the lines on her and I think if I was in the process of building her I would be crying as to paint her or not? either way she would look this beautiful. keep up the great work she is a ship to be admired.

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.
