  1. I hear that! I just tell myself: my early work (I.e. what I’m doing now), will help show how much I have improved later!
  2. Wefalck, is there one or two you would recommend (in English, if possible)?
  3. Hola y bienvenidos!! Hello and welcome!!
  4. Welcome!! As a side note, the designers of both the 1:24 and 1:48 version of your first build have accounts here at MSW. The designer of the 1:48 (which is your build, I’m guessing) has a number of group projects you may wish to peek at, at sometime. Best of luck with the Lady Nelson!
  5. How is shaping, etc. of planks different between the first pass and second?
  6. Awesome!!! Thanks for the pictures - yours are the only photos of a built-version of this model I have seen. As you may remember, the instructions are a bit light on detail. As a result, I keep staring at the box lid, trying to reverse engineer what I see. But there is only one photo to work with (admittedly, there are several copies of that photo on the box top though.) I see you had much better success with working with the given parts than I did! She looks very nice! Again thanks for sharing! i also bought this kit in the ‘90s as well, from a cool hobby shop in the east-side of Manhattan. I cut two pieces and got scared I that would ruin the kit. The kit then survived moves, a fire, having kids, etc. until now when I decided I was fine with ruining the kit and had go.
  7. I don't, but I will hazard the following: most of the Victory models show a yellowish color. The cheapest yellow color in that time period is ochre (yellow or gold), so I would assume that. But I'm ready for an expert to jump and correct me!
  8. My sister had a stroke in her thirties. Similar constraints. It is hard to have patience...
  9. Thanks! I quite like that myself. The string had a coating which caused the dye to bead and not interact with the string. As first that bothered me, but then once I got the dye to seep in, I too noticed the variations and stopped. After poking around the internet, there a few ways to force/create such variation.
  10. I noticed I have be aware of any twist on the string or the blocks tangle up. I went with minimal thread wrapping (skipping the stuff I asked about earlier).

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.
