  1. La Reale is at my daughter's house now, the same exact of my last post. Cheers Gimo
  2. Hi Kikatinalong, as your first build you did an excellent job, I suppose this is the first of two overlapped planking so, make sure that each stripe follows its natural course. I see two stripes moving away from their bulkheads in the aft (due to lateral tension) Try to direct the strips towards the upper part of the stern cheers Gimo
  3. Frank, your decorative stripe is very close to absolute perfection.😉 Cheers Gimo
  4. Hi Frank, with my model built on 2013 I also have no memory of particular mistakes on the plan, but honestly I did not always follow the Instructions. Have a look at my log into the signature, I hope you can find something useful for your good work. Cheers Gimo
  5. End of log. The base was quickly done from a picture frame. The barrels and the anchor were taken from an old kit. Cheers Gimo
  6. Yesterday morning I finally received the Brass-Black. The time for experiments is over. Cheers Gimo.
  7. Hi Mark, I may have used an incorrect phrasing. I've literally fried the guns. Gimo
  8. Blackening. While waiting for "Brass-Black" delivery, I've decided to experiment with the pig-lard. Gimo

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.
