  1. this AL kit has only 4 gun ports in the wrong place'es, has no scuppers, no gun ports at stern etc.... etc. that's what i mean about making the model correct..... i should have been more specfic.
  2. I want to thank all of you for yuor input on this subject. i bought this AL kit (mayflower) a few years ago, after i bought the AL Virginia 1819 (my first build) . i'm still working on the 1819 and still learning, when other projects are out of the way. so i thought it would make sense to research the mayflower before i atempt to build it. and that brought me to open this can of worms. a lot of work has to be done to this AL kit to make the mayflower model correct.
  3. I tend to agree with you Roger........ makes sence. however i read on the internet that it was the HMS MAYFLOWER at first..... and took part in chasing the spanish out of the english channel....... maybe it was painted when it was the HMS ??? if anything i read is true🙄
  4. here's a site....... you may already knowof it, but if not you mite find something......... i do weathering too. this is a o scale tanker i sold on ebay last winter. http://theweatheringshop.com/home.html
  5. Is this model going to a museum ? and on a other note, have you heard from Doris, the lady building that fantastic card model ship....... she has not posted anything since march............ i pray no miss fortune has come to her.
  6. That's some knock out work that you are doing........ you are another true artist, that i have seen on this site.😉 Did you get your weathering skill's from doing model railroad rolling stock & structures ?
  7. Well if you feel like building another........ you can get the plans in any scale you want.🙂
  8. Do you want to build one of the old airplanes?🙂 Go here - https://clevelandairline.com/default.aspx Home of the very first in the world balsa wood model airplane kit. the company is 100 years old as of this year. you can only buy the plans, pattern sheet is provided . these builds feature the true air foil design of the wings, tail, stabilizer..... no flat bottom wings, tail, or stabilizer........ and they fly. when built they look as real as real can get. you can get the plans in any scale you want. ENJOY ! 🙂

  10. I searched the net, trying to find out if ship's were painted in the 1600's........ near as i could find was the 1700's. i wonder if the mayflower was orignally painted ??
  11. soak brass in acetone. i use JAX green patina........ can be found on ebay......... no mixing........ easy peasy.

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.
