  1. Ken, It's his private magician, and the other his bodyguard
  2. Jo, what a relief ... Steve, the best is yet to come, big bronze props ( I know, I will hardly be able to discern them from the rest of the build myself)
  3. Sheila is in the house!!! With the expected result Jo, as you see, just ask me kindly (Robin Hood, version with Kevin Costner)
  4. I very much enjoyed the voyage, Ed. I don't see myself following in your footsteps, though you were an excellent teacher, and quick with your responses to questions. A very beautiful build, and as druxey wrote, a marathon feat in rigging. I myself am still very much taken by your smithcraft. Thanks for sharing
  5. I wanted to give you a standing ovation, but that will have to be postponed since you are not quite ready ... nevertheless ... a very beautiful set of galleys
  6. I always find them small parts a pain to glue, the sticky stuff always seems to be to generously applied no matter what you do ... nice progress, Jack
  7. Thanks, mate. I'm glad I decided to buy them afterall. Just another interesting details
  8. Go for it Mark. Liven things up a bit on deck and you get some colour in your build too Great going Jack ... not much PE on the Fletcher, camouflage came out rather well ... giving us the silent treatment right ... we'll have to watch out for you ... sen in spies to check upon your builds
  9. Thanks for the likes, and positive comments Mark, she does ... very observant as it is hard to spot ... must have taken a hit or bumped into something piercing her hull ...I'll have the command issued, but you know, it may be to darn late mate
  10. Got me glue from the UK, rigged the tub, but forgot to take a picture, added some depthcharge launchies (3D print). Tomorrow I need to laquer the hull with mat varnish, add the propellors, and that should be about it ... Cheers girls and boys
  11. And then there are the Sampson post, and the beam and truss arrangement ... Bates p 28 - 29 ... it seems you have some more delving to do

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.
