  1. Hello peter and Damian, and a warm welcome to the forum. John
  2. It always feels good to get that first plank fitted - almost like the model has now been properly started. John

  5. Thanks Carl - and thanks to all who have hit the 'like' button! John
  6. Well, the 'Meteor' finally has a stern! The major elements of the transom framing are now in place so she's looking like a ship at last. Still some detail pieces to fit around the transom and then some final fairing up and sanding of the exterior before I give her a bit of planking to firm up the whole structure. It will be a little while until my next update as I won't be in at the museum for the next three weeks. John

  8. This exhibition is now open at the museum. It consists mainly of large information boards and a lot of maps and paintings tracing Bligh's career. There are also several of Bligh's log books, but no models. No doubt a very informative exhibition for the general public, but not of general interest to model makers - unless you're a real Blight fan. John John
  9. George Raper was a Midshipman on the 'Sirius', and also a noted watercolourist, so we should be able to take his painting as evidence of what was actually there, even though it's a very unusual arrangement for a brig. 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.
