  1. Absolutely. I decided to keep it small and calculate the exact amount of the resin needed. For this one 30 ml was more than enough. My second diorama would be a port with 2 ships and my first one with shallow water coloring
  2. My first experiment with epoxy resin. The sticks were put to control the flow of the liquid and supposed to be removed later. Unfortunately epoxy is one of the strongest glues when dry. Cutting seemed a bit risky and since this is just an experiment i just coated them with water based varnish and left them on.
  3. And if you like the 1/700 you may like more this in 1/50 scale
  4. Some artworks by Kostas Katseas, one of the finest sea modelers in the world
  5. I found a series of video on YouTube, how to fully built HMS Beagle. That is pretty encouraging
  6. Are these kit complete?Or I need to buy other items for extra detailing, like photo etched parts?
  7. I am looking to buy my first kit, around 70-80cm long .I decided to go for a frigate model which suits my needs and my budget. So i found some nice models online and decided to share it with you. Every suggestion is welcome. My best option so far is this https://hobi.lt/en/hobbies/modelling/occre/occre-ns-mercedes-spanish-frigate-185-scale-wood-model-ship-kit-14007 or this https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/artesania-hermione.html#SID=1786 Do you think these models are suitable for begginers? Or should i look for something simplier, like these https://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/model-shipways-rattlesnake-MS2028.html#SID=60 https://hobi.lt/en/hobbies/modelling/occre/160-occre-hms-beagle-ideal-beginners-scale-model-kit-12005 Also if you have a favourite sellen in EU, you can let me know here or via PM have a nice day all
  8. Its kinda confusing to me as the most popular brand in my area here is voted as the worst one. Maybe I need to order my kit from other European country.
  9. Worst form of piracy is when those products can put your health in danger(drugs). There has been planes that went down cause of fake spare parts broke down. Thats insane.
  10. This small ship model looks very impressive. Way better than many big ones I ve seen. Looks like its ready to sail!
  11. Im just a newbie here but i think the poll result is a bit biased as the majority of users are from US, therefore they preffered local brands.🙂

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.
