  1. Sorry if this has been asked before but will instructions be in English?
  2. Have you received authorization for the mast part from Ancre? Will masts and sails be part of the kit? When do you anticipate kit to be complete and available? By the way looks great!
  3. I think Hunt's practicum is still available for Armed Virginia Sloop. (You have to buy the practicum and then purchase the kit from Model shipways).I used that for my first model. I now have also the Speedy and Alert to be built. In reviewing the kits, materials and instructions I agree with glbarlow comment above and would also recommend Vanguard Model Alert.
  4. How about Vanguard's two to be released models The (80 foot) Zulu is named Lady Isabella and the (70 foot) Fifie is called Lady Eleanor. https://vanguardmodels.co.uk/coming-very-soon They are supposed to be geared toward beginner with quality parts.
  5. How about Vanguard's two to be released models The (80 foot) Zulu is named Lady Isabella and the (70 foot) Fifie is called Lady Eleanor. https://vanguardmodels.co.uk/coming-very-soon They are supposed to be geared toward beginner with quality parts. From a post here by Chris Watton: "The (80 foot) Zulu is named Lady Isabella and the (70 foot) Fifie is called Lady Eleanor. They are both late 19th/early 20th Century Scottish fishing vessels, built for the rough northern seas. The Zulu has around a third more parts than the Fifie, but both follow the standard designs, but with more helpful stuff added for beginners. Both have a laser etched deck, laser cut skeleton in MDF (tried poplar ply, too weak and birch ply, too thick, well over 3mm), and the rest of the wooden parts are all pear wood laser cut, with the decks being in 1mm limewood. Each has a brass PE sheet, first planking in 1x5mm limewood and second in 1x4mm pear wood, and masts, spars and a couple of other things in walnut. I am just waiting for my sample pre-stitched sails to arrive, two separate sails for the Fifie and three for the Zulu. I figured that just because it's aimed more at beginners, that doesn't have to mean it should be just a box of cheap crap, but hopefully, a project most can enjoy without much bother."
  6. Chris Is this a hint of a direction you are heading? I hope HMS Bellona is in your future plans!
  7. Great job on coppering but when I do my Speedy I am going to opt out. I am not really the biggest fan of coppering.
  8. Excellent ! Looking forward to your posts and release of this kit!
  9. Looks very interesting. Would like to see a built example more than just renderings.
  10. looking forward to see your work. please keep us updated

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.
