  1. Hi chriswi. In my kit all the masts and yards are made of ramin. I have spent some time wondering how i will paint or stain these. Painting them black sounds like an good option. I think i will stain the mast in mahogny and paint the yards black.
  2. Nice work. I started on Diana about a month ago, so I will follow your log build closely. I am currently working on the first planking.
  3. Hello everyone! 31 year old newbie from Norway here. I have just started on my second build, HMS Diana from Occre. I discovered ship modelling last christmas when my dad bought a kit from AL and i wanted to try it for myself. My first kit was the Scottish Maid from AL. It was a nice experience building it, but the instructions in the kit were very poor. I came across this fantastic site and found some very helpfull buildlogs on the Scottish Maid. I doubt i had finish the modell if it werent for all the great tips om this site. Luckely, the instructions in the HMS Diana kit is much better, and i have found some buildlogs on the modell that i gonna follow and learn from.

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.
