  1. Sorry to hear about the misfortune, Nenad. Hope the damage is limited, and easily repaired.
  2. Don't indulge on the diet products (like diet sodas), neither your body nor your nervous system do respond to well to a lot of artificial sweetners. It actually is quite a list. How is the last part of cleaning moving along?
  3. You know you really confirm the established impression of Americans: You only eat burgers and drink coke ...
  4. B turret doesn't have a lot of leeway either when the crane is up ...
  5. Looks like the vertical part can be lowered, which also would lower the arm. The winch might be below deck as well, although the latter is not very practical ...
  6. I am curious as to how things will evolve EG By the way, what's that "Carl's" thing on your bench?
  7. Sewing thread in the required colour would do the trick. If it's to thin just twist one or more strands to the required thickness. I created a chain for 1;96 dolphin striker by making knots, one after another on a piece of sewing thread.
  8. Right, I forgot: No airbrush! I used Ak xtreme metals with a brush ... you just have to shake the bottle frequently ...
  9. Bob, well done. If you have tiny scratches you can also use Mr.Surfacer 500 (also available in rattle can)
  10. Did somthing go wrong? I can't see any damage! Very well saved, wefalk. As I found out, you'll probably find the missing piece when you no longer need it, and least expect it
  11. Sharp eye, Jan. When I look at the black and white bands I would say so ... bit I just can't read the name on the bow
  12. Kurt is right Bob. You will be irritated or very annoyed in the future, if you do not correct the problem. Every time you look at that hull ...

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.
