  1. Wow just caught up with your build, stunning as always m8 Martyn
  2. Trouble is that they try to defend it as its nothing to do with them but theft is theft weather it's copying someone else's design or breaking into some ones house it's still theft and they don't seem to get it. Martyn
  3. I'm surprised it's still on their forum. I put some comment on their a while ago and it lasted two minutes before I was thrown out. They certainly don't like criticism
  4. Thanks for the comments and likes As promised some more pics taken in better light now the clouds have broken up and we have sunshine Martyn
  5. Thanks Eddie, glad my build has helped. That's the great thing about this forum we can always learn from each other's build. Rgd Martyn
  6. Thanks for the comments guys. Sorry about that rubbish pictures but it's as gloomy as hell here at the moment. will try and take some more when the weather becomes brighter. Thanks again for following Martyn
  7. Cheers OC for the comments and the likes I have now finished the Vasa . I can say I have really enjoyed building this model . A few miner admissions but nothing that can't be fixed . Thanks for following Martyn
  8. A merry Christmas and a happy new year to all Martyn
  9. Stear well clear of this rubbish a friend of mine got one and all it was good for was lighting a fire. Total rubbish Martyn
  10. Lovely work Denis I have a B17 to build for the local museum at Rougham near Bury st Edmunds in Suffolk so yours has given me the get up and go to start building her . Well done my friend Martyn
  11. Thanks for all the great replies guys A small update. My wife is slowly getting better still a long way to go but onwards and upwards we go All the rigging has been completed on the foremast and I have fitted a missing gunport on the mizzen quarter deck . Next job fitting the gunport lids to the side, quite a long job as each one is pinned with a brass pin to give them strength. The thread hanging down the sides are from the rigging as I leave them till I put the rope coils over the belay pins so I can adjust the sails to how I like them . cheers for following Martyn
  12. Absolutely brilliant I'm still laughing now Martyn
  13. Not surprised this is probably the best site out there 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.
