  1. Stunning pictures and I echo your statement,THANK YOU Martyn
  2. Hi Martyn,

    Can you tell me what glue you are using to fix the carvings to the hull.

    Thanks Eddie 



      Hi Eddie the glue I am using is ca gel from locktite.

      Hope this helps m8 


  3. Nice job Snoepert the carvings are right fiddley blighters to paint . Martyn
  4. Lovely work Ej she will complement the SR . Pulling up a chair for this one mate . Martyn
  5. Well saved with the tyre m8 it must have been a really scary . The Sol is looking stunning. Martyn
  6. I wouldn't worry about the different hight of the dead eyes as I have been on real ships where the dead eyes have been different heights it all depends on how tight the shrouds are . Martyn
  7. I live about 30 minutes from Felixstowe and hadn't even looked at that one 🤔 Definitely will now Martyn
  8. The Camel f-1 and the Fokker v.ii . The next one I want is one of the seaplanes not sure which one yet? Martyn
  9. Looking forward to seeing this build as I have built several of the wing nut models and the quality is superb and love aircraft of this era Martyn
  10. Cheers for all the likes guys. A bit more work done on the Vasa The stem has now been built and painted and the messenger port cut into the side of the hull as Deag seems to have missed this out?. I have also fitted the rudder as the instructions tell you to fit it later in the build when all the galleries are glued on and I didn't like the thought of leaning the ship over while trying to fit it . A bit of a heads up the rudder pintails are very hard and snap easy unless you soften the metal first by heating them up over some heat and letting them cool slowly, hope this helps. Back to painting lots more carvings. Martyn
  11. Thanks for the comments and likes guys. The decorations have now been fitted to the stem . I went with EJL idea with using epoxy to give me a lot more wriggle time to get them in the right position. More to follow Martyn
  12. Having built this kit you get quite a lot of line to finish the rigging as long as you don't go to mad with rigging the blocks. Martyn

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.
