  1. Yes Amazon is very good with sorting things out, even if 3rd party seller is involved, so one way or another it'll be sorted out.
  2. To take my mind off the missing parts from my dauntless I bought myself a scroll saw (used) for £50 I thought it was a bargain 😉
  3. Update on the missing parts, as it was purchased through Amazon I think it'll be easier to send it back and get another, as the seller wishes to see photos which I have sent but heard nothing yet. Seller is Paraiso Japan EU. I have to wait 2 working days for a reply, so this build on hold for a bit. Sorry😥😡
  4. The tobacco for the pipe could be flavoured with a touch of rum😀my great grandad used to moisten his old baccy this the smell was lovely.
  5. Fantastic build and display 😃. The lighting in the "cockpit " area looks very realistic, I for one think you got it perfect.
  6. Thanks Craig, with any luck the parts will be sent. The original parcel took eleven days to get here from Japan. In the meantime I have started to paint the other cockpit parts, I'm using Tamiya cockpit green as my order of Mr color paints not turned up yet and I can get Tamiya paints locally. Checked it on a conversion chart and it supposed to match, but I don't think it will matter as long as all the other parts requiring this colour are done the same. I'll get some photos on tomorrow Cheers
  7. So began to check the parts for the cockpit and was going to paint but have noticed that two sprues of parts are missing,🤔🤔 mainly cockpit pieces and the whole of the undercarriage, wheels etc... its brought the build to a halt until I can obtain the missing bits.😡 E-mail winging its way to Hasegawa as I write!!!
  8. Hi, have you thought about Chuck's Winchelsea? It is a plank on bulkhead build but you can either scratch build all of it or get some of the laser cut parts if you want. Just my thoughts. Cheers
  9. I just did quick measure of my guns on Sherbourne and the barrel is 27mm and the carriage 16mm, so on Tony's calculations if yours are the same they are a bit oversized.
  10. Yes one with the ladder on the track so you could get along the top shelves, and sit in the wing back chair to read the chosen tome
  11. I agree with Chris on the planking, on my Sherbourne deck planking was 0.5mm although even with thinner decking it looks as though the barrel would still catch the port lintol. It's hard to tell from the photo but the gun does look a tad oversized. It wouldn't do any harm to try thinner decking.
  12. The themes by Elmer Bernstein to the 1960 Magnificent Seven and 1963 The Great Escape, while not strictly in the films as such, they are instantly recognisable and quite rousing!!
  13. I reckon you could write a book for modellers with all the great tips you gives us Craig 😆👍
  14. Thanks OC, I'm glad to be here. I thought after lurking here in non-ship I'd take the plunge and join the fun
  15. I've been tempted into doing this build after watching Craig and his many non-ship projects and picked the Dauntless as I like carrier borne bombers and fighters from the Pacific campaign. Now it's been at least 40+ years since I did a plastic aircraft model so please bear with me, also its OOB, no mods or aftermarket stuff, just plain as is. I'll be going with the US navy tri-colour paint scheme but they not arrived yet so maybe a while until I
  16. After 11 days my package arrived from Japan!! build log to follow when grandkids have gone home as they're stopping for a couple of nights
  17. You took the words out of my mouth, the clubs nearest to me tend to be RC flying or train clubs😥
  18. You're doing a grand job LS keep up the good work and Victory will look fantastic 😁
  19. Welcome to MSW, a very nice looking cutter you have there.

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.
