  1. Your building skills far exceed your photo skills greg - she is looking stunning - you do need a better camera to show your best. OC.
  2. Like them mate, its amazing how much difference pe and metal fittings make to a kit, kind of gives that extra reasurance of strength and not forgetting realism, please excuse the poor spelling i suffer from word blindness sometimes lol) OC.
  3. I love that color contrast mate and the fit of the stab/elevators looks real good, are the wings going to be the same camo pattern as the stab units? OC.
  4. Thats an interesting scenario say and F8 vs F16 just dog fighting using just thier guns - compairing agility. OC.
  5. Looks like there might be a bit of wiggle room going from these plans from this build pic. OC.
  6. Makes one wonder how it would get on in a dogfight situation with modern tech F16 type thing. OC.
  7. Im still about folks havn't left the country - just cant start this thing till I have finished the Pearl, I did get the box out for a sneaky look while the admiral wasn't looking - damn I cant wait to start it. But to give myself some me time I am going to try to do a one off airshow this year, just need to save some pennies to get me there being my number one passion - planes it would be a good break and put me in a good frame of mind to build my mossie later. OC.
  8. Evening all, a massive thanks to all the commens and likes and for all who follow my piraty adventure, I left you all with a top foreyard made on my mat, so next off I added a few coats of paint - then I glued and lashed it to the upper mast, after I connected up the lift ropes then fed them down and tied/glued them to the forecastle bits. OC.
  9. Do you have any home decorating stores? that sell D.I.Y. tools and materials paints/paper etc, they should sell fuse wire pack or even Ebay. OC.
  10. We have a household store over here called Wilko down the tool section they have plugs - extention leeds and little cards of fuse wire that comes in three ratings, I use the thinest think its 3amp. OC.
  11. Nothing much really - just making another yard including the lift blocks and foot rope supports made form fuse wire. 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.
