  1. Just had same issue. Appears we have been logged out. Log back in and everything seems back to normal! Nick
  2. Can't compare to other products but it is easy and quick to use. Gets my vote! Nick
  3. Like it. Next challenge: redo the kit but build the bottle first...😋 Nick
  4. Hi Mike That's a lovely first layer of planking! Have a good Christmas! Nick
  5. Hi Sjors Good to see you back in the shipyard! You know what they say fifth time lucky!😋 Happy Christmas to Anja and you! Nick
  6. Morning everyone Small amount of progress. First cannon build. Got a smaller one to do and I can start drilling the round gunnports. The barrel was already as shown above but I used birchwood brass blacken on the trunnion. Worked really well. Quick and easy to use ( I have no affiliation with the company by the way). Gun lines up pretty well with the existing gun port. Phew! 😀 Thanks for visiting Nick
  7. We're lucky enough to live close to the Portsmouth dockyards and got a half price family season ticket during black Friday weekend. Here's a nice picture of warrior at sunset. And another one of my son who's being silly but hopefully it will make you smile...😀 Cheers, Nick
  8. Is it worth mentioning this to Daniel Dusek as he is redoing the Royal Louis in not too long? Just in case he hasn't picked up on it.
  9. Thank you very much for the kind comments! That's one of the main reasons I chose this model, "painting with wood" as someone else put so well. I'm glad the oil has deepened the colour of the wood. Personally I think that this tones down a bit the gold from the columns (and the rest of the decorations to come). I don't mind at all! Nick
  10. Evening all In today's episode of "Pimp my Ship"... OK nothing that exciting I'm afraid. But I do have the first lot of gold columns supporting the handrails done. Nice to start adding a bit of detail! Next up I need to build a couple of the deck guns (two different sizes) as some round gun ports need to be drilled on the sides and I want to make sure I get the height right! As always thanks for visiting. Nick

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.
