  1. Wonderful work on those open bulwarks, Rob. Nice to see those Diana builds coming along !
  2. Beautiful indeed, Jason. Your finishing is a benchmark for my future project(s) One question ( probably overlooked this in your buildlog) which brand/color code do you use for the red parts : gun carriages, inner bulwarks,...?
  3. Looking forward when you are to resume shipbuilding activities Take care
  4. Bonjour Cri Cri, Very nice frigate To answer your question and only my personal opinion, from an easthetical point of view Gun : black Wheels : black or dark brown Carriage : red ( but not to flashy ) However : you're the captain
  5. Hi BE, Whatever you're to decide : another jewel to complete a brilliant collection. Although I tend to go for fully rigged ships, this build obviously demonstrates what a superb cutter this is. Your craftmanship & dedication to this hobby is stunning
  6. Nice books, Patrick. You just can't have enough of them and related to such purchases : happiness is just mouseclick away...
  7. You're always welcome, Rob And I 100 % agree : this kit offers a lot of possibilities/opportunities. Regarding the columns : the AoTS inspired me, the first pages show different (lookalike?) Diana's with columns Besides, this is what's MSW all about : by different approaches, exchanging ideas and trying to improve yourself (myself ) for the next build
  8. Hi Rob, Looking forward to your progress on this (side)-project. I went for a rather "straighforward" approach and the way both you and Jason manage things are lessons learned for me. Keep up the good work !
  9. Hi Bob, a simple hit on the like button will not do. Your work is truly a benchmark for many of us. Regarding the project to come, if I were to decide why not proceed by elimination : a fully rigged 3-master or something smaller ? Which scale do you have in mind ?
  10. Hi Patrick I'm looking forward to your recovery. Circumstances may differ : sometimes life get's in the way of hobby-matters. Get well & take care.
  11. Hello and a warm welcome from the not so far away Gate to the "Flemish Ardens". Take your time to visit topics, buildlogs,...I'm sure you'll find answers and a lot of inspiration.
  12. Hi, B.E. quite challenging. But I'm confident as your commitment to this hobby is as huge as the support you'll receive from many MSW-members. Keep up the good work !
  13. With all due respect to the shipwright assistant : Nice Job on the planking B.E. ! Many of us (me included) would settle for this. Looking forward to the treenailing chapter

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.
