  1. I love your interest in all the victory feeds john, I guess you had some interest in her.


    Regards  OC.

  2. I would like to do the bow, waist and stern sections in 1/64 as a diorama.I am just in the planning stages now and builds like this are very helpful in my research. Cheers! John.
  3. This is not an easy build.When I started my Sergal kit back in 1973 when I opened the box I knew that this was going to be challenge.No decent plans or instructions and what there was in Italish.With the help of Longridge, I made it through to the end with lots of blood, sweat, and tears.It was a real challenge as there was no internet then and not a lot of pics.Looking back though it was a great introduction to research and planning.I don't think that many Victorys got finished in those days.Cheers! John.
  4. Hi !William.I find that on any long build I start off with great enthusiasm then have a dry spell around 2/3rds in then when I see the finish line the enthusiasm slowly returns.Hang in there.Cheers! John.
  5. Hi! Mark.The patina is just wonderful.The idea that it was a study model makes it all the more interesting to me.It has a storyline all of its own and dioramas are all about the story.It is wonderful as well that you have taken the time to research this piece of history.I will be following your project with enthusiasm. Cheers! John.

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.
