  1. A friend of a friend had Monty Python's "Always look on the bright side of life" song as a ringtone... until he forgot to mute his phone and it rang during a funeral... Nick
  2. Hi Vane Lovely build. I did exactly the same thing with some of my second planking but spaced out the CA so that I could add normal wood glue as well. That should give a stronger bond to the first planking. My two pennies worth anyway! 🙂 Nick
  3. Morning all The family and I went to Portsmouth yesterday trying to make the most of our season tickets before they ran out. Had no idea that HMS Prince of Wales was arriving that day... As one of the guides kindly told my wife: "Madam don't you listen to the news?" 😄. Anyhoo here's a few pictures Nick
  4. No worries No Idea! Think I had seen that link already. Just gotta keep looking at Lidl website...
  5. I'd love to get one of those but unfortunately they come up very rarely on the Lidl website...☹️ And I can't find anyone else in the UK that sells them.
  6. Just had same issue. Appears we have been logged out. Log back in and everything seems back to normal! Nick
  7. Can't compare to other products but it is easy and quick to use. Gets my vote! Nick
  8. Like it. Next challenge: redo the kit but build the bottle first...😋 Nick
  9. Hi Mike That's a lovely first layer of planking! Have a good Christmas! Nick
  10. 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
  11. 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

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.
