  1. Thanks to all for the welcome!!! Some of your works are so much inspiring, so helpful, that why is an honor!!! Moving on, climbing decks... I didn't want to put the bulkheads because it's will be a lighting stopper, and I'd haven't so many leds. so the only thing new here was the stove. its a simple one, I didn't put so much detail here, I want to leave my strenghts for the upper decks!. For the record, my models dealer, recently contacted me saying that a Siren of model shipways, has arrived, so I'd probably buy it. Good price, and probably never could import a new model.
  2. Hello to everyone!!! my name is Matias, and I write from Buenos Aires, Argentina. yes that country, with so many political and financials problems right now! without importations, what make realy realy dificult, find tools and materials, not to mention models, no production, dollar very high, 10 to 1, so, do not want to bore you more, but I needed to put some background. This is my first post ever, and I thought that was time to show my tries, as the title says, to feed my hunger for details, I think that phrase describes the feelings of some of us. I bought a heller Victory a year ago, and started to get complicate the model, learning a lot about that I like so much, ships. Before this, I made 7 plastic kits, each one has a minor modifications, my goal for now should be to make my first build from scratch, Y think that's because here it's so much difficult find, and buy good models. Ok! so. Stop write boring things and straight to photos!!! Here is the general view, and the way she looks right now. you can see the leds and the interruptor, I bought that one, in a tiny, ancient, dusty, local hardware store o as it's call here, Ferreteria!. Everything started as a normal plastic model ship! And then it's gets more complicated. The first real hardware appeared, and a lot of research was necessary. here you can't find anything to buy and if you imported the most common is that never passes the customs. so the internet was the first information supplier! The new wood pieces started to mix with the plastic. And finaly I knew there no way back!. and the people who watch my progress saing.. so detail, and then it's are gonna hide it with a deck!, and I reply yes! but it just for the sake of practicing. Ok, feel free to criticize everything, I know she looks awfull, but those were my first steps. I shall be posting new progress soon!!! thank for watching! Matias J. Welsh

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.
