  1. Tried my and at the weird camo. I think it came out OK
  2. Beautiful ship and model. I always loved this story about the original race. Legend has it that while watching the race, Queen Victoria asked who was second, and received the famous reply: "There is no second, your Majesty."
  3. she’s a beauty. I saw her in person some 15 years ago during a trip to Nova Scotia to visit the place of my mother’s birth.
  4. It is a shame, but enough is visible that one has to do all the detail. A lot of plastic aircraft kits are like that. Detailed interiors that one never sees
  5. Finally got the hurricane house under roof. Wife and I were in the woods (roughing it in an AC cabin, with full kitchen, 2 bed rooms, and a bath, on beautiful Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia, but alas No Modleing😬) so not much got done on CWM for a bit. But I am am finally back at it. we did manage to finish several bottles of wine 😇
  6. Pose it on your driveway with the right perspective and it will look real.
  7. I seem to have opened a can of worms. I am taking a break from modeling for a couple weeks (14 days in the Virginia Mountains) so plenty of time to think about the roof of the hurricane house. I probably will go for a “smooth” top.
  8. The Model Shipways plans for the CWM say that the roof of the hurricane house was covered in canvas. I’ve been puzzling how to duplicate that. I see you just stayed with same material as the sides.

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.
