  1. My shipbuilding is going slow because I can only work in my spare time. Here are a few more photos of me.
  2. Roofs in the kit is to small and crooked, so I had to enlarge and straighten them I use balsa wood. I went to a picture frame workshop and got some waste for free. The picture frames are made of balsa wood
  3. Thank you. I'll post more pictures explaining how I did the design flaws. I have recently created this shipbuilding theme so I do not have photos of the foremost, but I think the beginning is familiar to many.
  4. Hello. I think you can paint the entire hull with diluted water glue. In this case, the hull will be uniform in color.
  5. Hi I am a new ship modeler from Lithuania. There is a second model of my ship (the first was Corel Company VASA). In my country are many people (about 2 million), so there are many people who make ship models, there are many company's which sells ship model kits. The most serious company in Lithuania is COREL. So I doing this company ship models. Now I'm doing COREL - WAPPEN VON HANBURG. This is Corel company's most expensive and sophisticated set of ships. I want to say that COREL kits are complex. But I like this company because the quality of the materials is good. I think it will be difficult to make this ship model because the first deck cannons have to be installed before the taller decks can be made and the sides of the ship glued. Swiss. Therefore, ground-floor cannons may be broken.
  6. Thank you. I didn't want to make my first ship simple. I wanted the ship to be beautiful and interesting to do.
  7. Hello fellow. This is definitely my very first ship model. I made a lot of inaccuracies in the rigging, but they are little visible. In the future I would like to produce the most sophisticated models. It can be * royal caroline * or * bonhomme richard *. I like
  8. Hello. I'll share with you some photos of my first ship model. This is a VASA ship model from COREL. As for the ship model kit, I can say that it is a difficult ship to build. The materials in the kit are of good quality. The body details are not laser cut but are hand-cut, so some parts are crooked and need to be repaired. The drawings are difficult to understand. I would recommend this firm's kits to experienced modelers. Not much is shown in the drawings.
  9. Thanks for the friendly consent. In Lithuania, I tried to write a letter to a forum for ship modelers, but no one wrote about the production of wooden models. Just few peoples makes models from plastic, few peoples makes from paper. Yes, this is my first ship model. Only wooden ship kits from COREL are available in my country. It is a small country and there is very little demand for such goods. I bought a sophisticated ship kit from VASA to have a strong desire to finish it and learn a lot. I made the model in my spare time, so it took 18 months. I'll create a VASA model photo section on this page so you can see what the COREL VASA model looks like. Of course, this is not an exact replica of the actual ship, but I liked the combination of blue and gold on the ship paint. Now I make COREL's most sophisticated ship model, WAPPEN VON HAMBURG I. I like ship models that are complex and require a lot of care.
  10. My name is Algirdas. I'm 32 years old. I recently started making ship models. I have been developing ship models for only 2 years. My first ship model was the COREL VASA. Now I make COREL WAPPEN WON HAMBURG. There are no more people in Lithuania who make ship models from wood.

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.
