  1. Hi Dave, I am not sure of the scale of this vessel. It says on the top cover " authentic scale" and on the side "scale 1 inch = 9 feet 5 inches". As I am not used to scaling in feet and inches, is that = 1/118? The kit number is 828:150. // Kent
  2. Thanks again for the welcome (especially to the swedes!). As I wrote before, you'll have to wait for Santa Maria in that suitable Lidberg scale, due to a man cave move. I'll be back! // Kent
  3. Hi guys. Thanks for your warmly welcome! I planned to start my first build log this week. But the rear admiral had other ideas. The space in which i do my modelling is going to be overtaken by her😠 I am movng up to the 2nd floor. But that is not so bad after all! I can easily put in two working tables there - with lots of drawers. Also I can, at last, have my spraybooth up the whole time! So things are going to be for the better I think. But now you have to wait at least 3 weeks before I am ready for my first build log here. Oh, if you are wondering what subject it will be? It will be Lindbergs Santa Maria from 1965 in a "suitable scale"
  4. Hi folks, I just stumbled in on this magnificant site. I especially like the athmosphere on all comments and the fenomenal will to help! I´m not a beginner, have built models for a long time - mostly plastic airplanes. However I have in my stash a number of ships and thought that I have to do something about them. Here they are: Revell Cutty Sark 1/96, Thermopylae 1/96 (old one), Wasa1/150, Snowberry 1/144, Heller Passat 1/150, Lindberg: La Flore 1/133? (old one), Santa Maria (old one), Victory (old one), Flying Cloud (old one). I guess that these will keep me occupied for a number of years but I have patience not to rush. But which shall I begin with? Any suggestions? Bye now from the south of Sweden

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.
