  1. My hold well box, decided to use dark ring with copper paint touch simulating bolts.
  2. I will be, definitely I will add support pillars under each overhead beams which will add a decorative touch to the walls. I will post some picks soon.
  3. At first I wasn’t sure about this little detail I created on the pillar chock, but it’s growing on me.
  4. Decided to stain the first part on the bow side since it better access now and made the deck look a bit rusty to simulate real deck.
  5. Thank you Henrik Being new to this I am still trying to figure all this out. I do appreciate your help! Another question I have is the dilemma I am having with mainmast step. As per picture attached do you drill into the mainmast step or square off the mast itself. I marked the mast just in case since I will not be able to get to it later. What would be the proper install.
  6. Hi Henrik I am working on Artesania HMS Bounty 1783 scale 1:48 Robert
  7. Just curious Rick, what model are you building or have just built. After my Bounty I want to take on HMS Victory. its 1400 mm in length that giant.
  8. Thank you Rick, in that case I will do just that. i think this is the best way. Can’t wait to start on my planking. I will post many picks with my progress.
  9. Hello, just started my Bounty build and at the framing stage. My concern is to glue the frames at the beginning and than not able to align the deck. Any suggestions? Should I wait until I put the deck in and than secure the frames with glue? Thank you for your help!

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.
