  1. I need to make bollards for my Arizona. I tried to make one from scratch and planned on casting copies, but the bollard was so small and I lacked experience doing casting. I decided to make them assembly line style. Now I just need to glue them together.
  2. As promised, I have an update! I reduced copies of the plans, cutout the deck plan and marked where I will make changes.
  3. The cannons look great Patrick! I learn so much from this Bounty build, and also your M35 Funkwagen build! Thanks so much for sharing on the forum. Shane
  4. Thanks Guys! I have actually have worked I my Nina and was planing on posting something the weekend. See ya then.
  5. Greg, your build is truly remarkable, it is hard to believe it is not 1/200!
  6. Harley, job well done! I hope I can measure up when I build my USS Kidd. I can't remember if you're going to add sailors?
  7. Jo, Bite that prickly tongue of yours, your work is beautiful and I'm just getting started. Anyhow, thank you for your encouraging comments. 😽 Shane BTW Thanks for all the likes everyone!
  8. Thanks Jo, it means a lot to me. Got a little farther, the first frame is in the jig! Only eight more to go!?!
  9. Thanks Jo, It is time consuming, this is just the first of nine frames! So, it may take me awhile. Shane
  10. I meant to post this photo on the 78th anniversary of the tragic sinking of the USS Arizona.
  11. Very nice job on the ship's bell! I too look forward to the cannon improvements.
  12. I have made some progress on the Blandford, I cut the notches in the keel and added brass tube to hold it in place on the jig. Also, I have glued the pieces of the frame halves together and will glue the frame halves together next.

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.
