  1. Evening all hope all are well and not going too nuts yet, I spent another hour or so on the Spit, I decided to make the stab frames / stabs and rudder, quite straight forward with minumum fuss, I decided to droop the stabs and give the ruidder a bit of angle. OC.
  2. No thats where the Bow goes with the Arrows 😉 But thank you for the compliment. OC.
  3. Plan for today (later) there is still a hairline gap where the wings meet the fuselage so I will work some plastic putty into it, then I will either attach the rudder stabs and Rudder or the wing tips (depends what I fancy doing first). I know I keep saying it - but I really recommend thses Eduard kits they are simply first rate in every way. OC.
  4. What makes it worse - we have very little fridge/freezer space and not much cupboard space so even if we had been able to stock up for months we would not be able to keep it chilled/frozen or stored - the downside of living in a tiny box of a house. But were in Ok health both still smiling and even cracking the odd joke - despite the tiredness. Oh and the admiral has been singing outdoors (((Very Loud))) "Im going slightly mad" by queen😲😲 OC.
  5. Struggling with our main grocery delivery Tesco they have been fully booked up just to get a delivery slot, we have been trying throught the day and even into the night (both had not much sleep over the last two weeks) as soon as they put new slots on they are filled up before we can get one. The problem is you can only order up to 80 items at a time and if you can get a slot most of the stuff ordered is out of stock. Over the last month we have been able to get the one main order from them but that was for about Ten days worth of food. I send them a decent email but no good they dont want to help despite us being loyal customers of over Ten years with them we are also on their system where we are supposed to be able to secure slots - but makes no difference. OC.
  6. Very nice work mate - very nice indeed, that red colour really makes her stand out. OC.
  7. Love those masts and start on the yards - the detail is spot on. OC.
  8. Yellow ocre is the colour we all know for the bulwarks and carriages, but if you find the shade a we bit too bright you could always dull it a bit by adding a bit of white, its completely how you want to display it my friend and how pleasing it wil be to your eyes. I am loving those canon/carriages though they will look super when finished. OC.
  9. Thank you EG, credit to the kit as its Superb best I have ever built. OC.
  10. Lovely job Edfward a real credit to you mate - it really has come out first class, I will miss the banter and viewing oyur work in The Special section (Here) hurry up mate and find another thing to build - we will be waiting. OC.

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.
