  1. Beautiful colors selection. You are turning this little kit into a masterpiece. Yves
  2. Delf, You are starting a fantastic kit here. Chris Watton's realizations are top notch and I have been following his work for many years. The structure of the hull seems to be the MDF parts that Chris started using for the Victory that he designed for Amati. I will be following with a lot of interest. Yves
  3. In parallel to the building of the frame to display the model, I am starting the antennae module, containing the infamous AE-35 device that is the reason HAL 9000 invokes to terminate the astronauts aboard the Discovery: The parts are very delicate and the main cross was broken in my box. A coat of German Grey before applying the white color on top. Below is a picture of Stanley Kubrick, inspecting the original antennae prop built for the 2001 Movie: Yves
  4. All these round shapes do not make the planking easier.... You are doing a good job on that delicate part of the construction. Yves
  5. This model is absolute perfection in realism and details. Where will you stop? Yves
  6. That island is incredibly realistic. You did a fantastic job. Congratulations. Yves
  7. Old Collingwood, here are a few pictures of the two Mosquitoes that were on display (and flying) at the past 2019 Oshkosh airshow. An incredible machine and so elegant in flight: Yves
  8. So, you are testing the water with a scratch build, before going for the big challenge? Very good idea. Yves
  9. Very nice model. I love the theme that you gave it....naughty and spicy, for great evenings and nights! Are you planning to place some figures, men in elegant suits and ladies in long dresses? Yves
  10. This is a fully rigged vessel, for sure. Thank you for explaining to us what each line is used for. I find that very useful. Yves

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.
