  1. To get some relief from the Pom Pom I started on the aircraft while searching for information I found this video on the launch and recover of a Walrus it showed great detail.
  2. Started to assemble the Pom Poms on the Rodney, there are 6 of them with over 60 parts each. I noticed the Hood had only 3 on your model. The hardest part is keeping everything squared.

  4. Another part this time a pom pom gun director , the thin parts are less than a human hair, taken 5 hours.
  5. Trying to work out position of motors, batteries etc. Not much room for access.
  6. I know the feeling, just spent the afternoon assembling the signal lamps on the 1/200 Rodney, the two pieces on the front are so small I can't pick them up with tweezers.
  7. Fitted the brackets for the cutlass bearing, this involved opening up existing depressions and modifying the brackets to fit. I wait for glue to dry before I add 2 part epoxy.
  8. The kit Trumpter 1/200 the RC is after market. I will need to add rudder servo, speed controller, battery pack and receiver. Lights and other moving parts are in the planning stage. Also using PE kit.
  9. Added larger rudder for RC this required a small modification to the hull. I use 5 min epoxy to fix to hull.
  10. Started on some small bits with PE. I don’t know what this is and can’t find a reference, maybe someone can help.

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.
