  1. Gene, This is a FANTASTIC presentation of your models. Superb work. Love your General, especially the "wood" floor in the Cab and the really nice stack of wood in the Tender. Thank you for the nice high quality photos, direct from the Camera. ( Great work on the rails too; nice painting for realism.) This is a great site for Model Ships. Niels (FSM member), posts here too. You will also find a few other folks that you know. Jim.
  2. That is some fantastic work. Can you add some details about how you made the Shrouds and Rat-lines in 1/1000 scale? I believe you have a Gallery over on Modelwarships too. Is this you?:: http://www.modelshipgallery.com/gallery/users/Joe-Lavender/user-index.html Thanks for posting. You model is a great replica of the Seeadler. I would love to see a manufacturer make a plastic kit of this ship. Nino P.S. In your research, did you locate where and what guns were on the ship during WW1?
  3. Popeye, Thanks for a great Build-Thread. I have been following along. Somehow I never realized plastic kits of Trains were available. You have enlarged my horizons. And really nice work on this older kit. Nino
  4. torpedochief, Thanks for starting this Thread. My stash is up to 2 of the old Renwal Ethan Allen kits. It's about time I started one. I always wanted to try and get the corrections made to the interior so Please continue to post Pics. I suspect this Ethan Allen model reconstruction will bring in quite a bit of interest. Nino.
  5. Daniel, Thanks for all the great Links. And keep up your great work on this wonderful Build log. Nino
  6. I have been following your activities here for some time. Impressive, overwhelming and intensely great work. Love the Carbon fiber reinforcement. Also, I want to wish you a Happy Birthday for tomorrow and thank you for continuing this most excellent USS Constitution Build Log! Nino
  7. From one electrical engineer to another....Outstanding ! This is the most energizing build ever. And, Thanks for taking the extra effort to post here and FSM. Nino.
  8. Almost forgot... Dafi has a full scan of the IMAI/Heller Instr here: http://www.segelschiffsmodellbau.com/t6012f1262-Heller-Victory-die-IMAI-Bauanleitung.html
  9. You can try this Model Site, Super Hobby. They had posted all the parts and all the pages and IIRC, it was in English Link: https://www.super-hobby.com/products/HMS-Victory-110139.html The BEST site for info on the HMS Victory Instructions is: Link: http://www.pete-coleman.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=104&t=2584&p=21672&hilit=instructions#p21672 If no luck, re-post your request. I was sent some copies of scans of the IMAI instructions. However, The scans I have are in Japanese! See attachment. Edit: Here is an update for IMAI instructions: https://www.bishophobbies.com/2009/05/18/hms-victory-imai-or-heller-1-100/ Nino. sample PAGE 1 2017_05_31_09_27_08(1).pdf
  10. Also, for the standard English Instructions try... http://www.model-making.eu/products/item_name-110139.html
  11. Does anyone have the IMAI version of the Heller 1/100 HMS Victory instructions? I understand IMAI also sold the kit but with better Rigging materials and a Very Good set of instructions. I would like to get a copy of the IMAI version. I think a copy was on the "pete coleman's victory" site but the site is gone now. Thanks. Jim. Edit: Pete Coleman's Victory site was restored. http://pete-coleman.com/forum/ucp.php?mode=login

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.
