  1. Steven, Super interesting build along with brilliant detailing - a real history lesson here - thanks as well
  2. Johann, Brilliantly scaled detailing !!!!! Your work is superlative within this hobby - as always thanks for sharing this log.
  3. Frank, It’s my error. I had many files available to look at (see one below) did it wrong – Gave a look at my Vasa (all correct) – weird that I would attach the lanyards off to one side for this one. Easy fix – thanks for the diplomatic “heads up” Was goofing around last night took a few of the lights - here’s one I like. Seems as if I will need to do some dusting off before building its case. PS: I had, sometime back, occasion to speak with the owner of Evan Designs LED’s. Suggested that he contact MSW and possibly become an add sponsor (mentioned the 33k membership) – Still don’t see him listed in the sidebar – hmmm. Cheers,
  4. Ferit, Very well done!! - they look so well scaled - nice work
  5. Frank, Looking brilliant as you get deeper into this complicated build
  6. Hi mates, Minor updates - completed the hull gun doors, added deck support stanchions along with some other bits here and there. Decided to use kit provided frames, but make the doors.(happy that all the lights are still working !!) Now onto the mast, yards etc... Thanks for you continued interest in this very slow going log.
  7. Update on Santisima... cross-section; Hull exterior fittings, interiors, upper deck details all done. Few more needed bits, but now time for masts and yards. As always thanks so much for the likes.
  8. Eddie, This will solve ALL of your problems. Use a very very small amount– it is thick, will adhere in a few seconds. It will attach anything to anything. Used this for all of my Vasa gilded bits+++. Use it for only FOR specific applications. Once you use it you will determine the best use for this product. It is great. If you need to move a piece - after glue has settled - just slowly pull the piece away – the dried glue will, like a rubber band, also pull away and can be completely removed leaving no glue marks on either bit. It will be difficult to pull away but it can be done. PS: used it for the ballast rocks – perfect.
  9. Hi Mates, E.J., Patrick, Frank – thanks for the kind thoughts ------------------ Completed the installation of the upper deck furnishings. Here are a few updated photos. Think that the sponge pole is a bit out of scale – may fix. With that fourth carriage decided to leave it unfinished placing it close to the unfinished gun port area. Two of those train tackles that I could not make use of (made a notations in previous post) instead worked out real well for use as gun tackles (wrapped the ropes as it would be in a “stored” position). As always thanks for your likes, notations and just dropping by.
  10. Ferit, nice to see your update - as always excellent work. Rigging looks just right.

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.
