  1. Thank you so much for the kind words. They do look similar. Scamp was a Cairn Terrier/ Norfolk mix . Thanks again Martyn
  2. I have just said goodbye to my little friend as I have had to have him put to sleep because of liver cancer RIP mate and may you chase balls for ever
  3. Hi all . I have been a bit busy on the FD . The planking has been finished and sanded down. I was going to second plank the hull but I like the look of it as she is meant to look all beaten up. Next job planking the decks and capping the bulwarks. All the wood has been left over from all the other builds I have done so this has cost me next to nothing so far and quite pleased with the outcome. I'm not very good at carving so I plan to use modelling clay for the carvings so just wondering what the best one to use . Thanks for following Martyn
  4. RIP Danny you will be sorely missed. Thinking of your family and friends Martyn
  5. Hi amazone the plans are from the Corel Vasa which I built several years ago but I have changed a pop decks to look like the Flying Dutchman. I looked at the ship from the film and thought that looks like the Vasa so it was the perfect candidate. Thanks for following Martyn
  6. Hi all I have now completed cutting out all the bulkheads and kell and have dry fitted to see how they fit and all seems fine. Next job cutting out the decks from some 2mm ply . Thanks for following. Martyn
  7. I would like to give Brian aka probablynot a big shout out to say thank you so much for making me some masks and sending them to me. I look after my wife so we have been self isolating but I still have to go shopping so these will be brilliant. Thanks again Brian 👏🏻👍🏻
  8. Hi all . I have cut out a few more bulkheads and the false keel . I must admit they take a lot longer than I thought but I'm not going anywhere so they will take as long as they take. As you can see from the pictures I have cut them way side the line so I can sand them down to the right level. Hopefully it's going to be a nice day tomorrow so I can cut some more. Cheers for following Martyn
  9. Hi all this is my build of the ghost ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean the Flying Dutchman a bit of a fantasy build but looking forward to going a bit freestyle. I have just started cutting out the bulkheads with my new coping saw so will post some pics tomorrow. More to come Martyn
  10. I wished you lived near me, trying to get a face mask is near impossible for me. Well done my friend for looking after your neighbors Brian
  11. Where can I order the Temple one Dave I love it 😍 Martyn
  12. There's a RC club where I live but they only do speedboats . I would love there to be a model ship club in Suffollk/ Norfolk. 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.
