  1. Extraordinary! What a beautiful model! I would like to know more about the steam yacht in the background of some of the pictures too.
  2. Inspiring work Adrian. It will be an incredible model when it is finished.
  3. That is fabulous detail at 1/72. It looks great.
  4. Looks like it will be a fascinating build. Lots of detail to drown in! 😀 Enjoy!
  5. That's a very interesting way to make gratings, I like it. How do machine the excess wood off the underneath?
  6. I just read it too! Fascinating, and highly recommended. I really enjoy the clear-eyed, objective and dispassionate lens that some modern historians are bringing to these subjects, leaving out all the romanticism, jingoism etc. The books written by James Holland on WW2 are equally good.
  7. A very nice looking ship too! Ketch rigged, presumably. Mid 1700s?
  8. Great start - lovely clean detail. Looking forward to more! I assume this the EURYALUS of 1803, a 36 gun frigate? But you haven't finished the beautiful model of the Boudriot 74!
  9. Handsome ship, a bit reminiscent of the US ship sloop Peacock, of about the same time.
  10. I haven't read Shattered sword, I'll have to look for it. As it happens I recently read the account of Midway by Mitsuo Fuchida and Masatake Okumiya, giving the Japanese view of events, which was a fascinating perspective.
  11. SILENT VICTORY is a great read too, highly recommended!
  12. I'm watching with great attention Ilhan. Fascinating to see your solutions to the various build challenges. The propeller and its housing are wonderful.

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.
