  1. Hi Brian, Nice to see another Fly going on. Mine is not abandonned actually... It is just that life has obliged me to put it aside for the last couple of years. I am currently planking the main deck and hope to post some progress pictures at some point this year. Happy modeling to you, Adeline
  2. Hi Andy, Thanks for your sharing of this waterspout pictures, this must have been impressive indeed! I am waiting forward to seeing you back at modelling, I just hope I'll be able to get back at it myself soon.
  3. Hello Tom, I see that you already received plenty of info from other members! I went to the showroom of Amati in Torino (via Madama Cristina 118 if I remember correctly). I don't regret it: they have all Amati products neatly displayed and there are some very fine build models in the glass cases... If you plan on going to the lake of Como, don't forget to drop at Torino!
  4. Hi Tom, I'm going to Torino (Turin) at the end of the month and plan to visit Amati there. I'll tell you more when I come back. I don't know of the other Italian manufacturers location. Cheers,
  5. Welcome back indeed Peter! This means we will have the pleasure of following your wonderfull builds again!!!
  6. Hi Ulises, Is it so much bigger than the Vasa? I'll be happy to follow your build, le Royal Louis is one ship from my favourite period of history. Enjoy your build!
  7. Mine (as far as I can remember... I have been blessed with living near a big harbour): visited: - Le Bélem - Cuauhtemoc - Pride of Baltimore II - USS Eagle - Sagres II - SS Jeremiah O'Brien - Sedov - Le Retoutable (submarine) - HMS Victory - L'Hermione (in her dockyard) - the ships at San Fransisco Maritime Historical Park... - some surimi-making boat whose name I forgot... sailed: - La Recouvrance passenger: - pride of Porthmouth (and other ferries of the same kind...)
  8. What started my love of ships, I guess was living near the ocean during all my youth. What started my wanting to build them was definitely living far from the ocean at that time!
  9. You did not model a scale pencil, did you? I had not seen this version of the cutter yet but I am truely amazed! Keep on the good work, Michael!
  10. Hum... well, that's a good thing you were not happy with the first shrouds then! As my granny used to say: "doing and redoing, this is working"... So, we'll have a new shrouds picture next time?
  11. Hi Andy, I missed the beginning of this log but I'll follow it from now on. That's a very interesting build... and quite a change from Peggy! Have fun!
  12. Very well done Danny! And what a nice contrast between the different wood colours, good choice! About the timberheads, are they supposed to be the end of the frames on the real ship? Is that why you mention cheating?
  13. Hi Sjors, Yes, every thing's all right, thanks. It's just that I have had very little available time for MSW of late... I hope to be more present from now on.

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.
