  1. Frank, This kit is way above my skill set - really enjoying following your excellent work. It's nice to dig into something totally "new" keeps this hobby stimulating IMO. Your research is certainly also part of the pleasure of your current log. Cheers,
  2. superb build and brilliant presentation - saw all 38 photos
  3. Richard, Brilliant. PS: Your shipyard table looks way to organized haha PS2: Is that a big BMW you drive around on? Regards,
  4. Well said Bob - indeed the best way - this also avoids possibly splitting narrow planks when hammering in nails however small. Emmet - welcome back
  5. Richard, Again, you raise the bar very high with you super detailed skill set - congrats - looking so good.
  6. E.J., Just catching up - Woa your ship looks awesome outdoors in natural light. I'm still so impressed with all of those well detailed carvings - great addition to your skill set. Lower standing gigging and stays also look just right. Cheers,
  7. Marc - you're responsible for this fix -thanks SO much PS: Glad that it meets with your approval I'll revisit here one last time - now back to current very slow project
  8. V nice - the printed panels are just perfect as well - great idea
  9. Javlin: way too kind – thanks so appreciated Dark Angel: Glad that you will find some inspiration – so kind of you to post. I’ve also found so much inspiration from builds that I follow here as well. Cheers. Richard: Thanks so much – your work, BTW, is brilliant indeed EJ: We’ve been following each other’s builds for quite a while now – as always so kind of you thanks. Not quite finished – but now done. Afterthoughts made me think that those vent stacks (not correct anyway) but still needed a bit more of a fix. So done here – now for the install – Need to coordinate with the Admiral - she will need the Vasa's resting space in Feb for a party she’s having (baby shower –for a friend’s daughter) – so will remove the Vasa, and its case then. This lantern will certainly look more appropriate - glad that I finally got around to this bit. Mates thanks for the likes and just dropping by,
  10. Doris, So nice to see your work (no art actually) back on site again. Beyond stunning !!! Respectfully,
  11. Dirk, Brilliant indeed - My mobile phone has been pinging almost continuously these last few days hahaha with your updates - stunning work PS: There was an earlier comment about your grid frames poss. running in the wrong direction. This got me curious - been looking through several books of period built model ships - photos have grid frames running in either direction. Hmmm??
  12. Richard, As always dropping by your shipyard is a real treat - your work with metals combined with wood is superlative -beyond well done indeed. And the scaling of these bits together is just first class. Nice informative sheets as well. Cheers,
  13. Found this by accident. Needs to be indeed shared
  14. Hi Mates, Thanks for your nice thoughts and visits, Here are some updated images. Next post will be when installed. Cheers

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.
