  1. Hi all, I think I have rectified the back strap problems - I scraped off some of that double line detail and the nasty gouge I caused, now they are smooth but with just a subtle line detail, with a couple of thin white paint lines they should look ok. OC.
  2. I might make him an experiment - could try sanding off some of the raised detail were the straps would be, and try to cut some very very narrow strips of tamiya tape, see if I could get them to stick then prime over the top again to seal them down, then in theory they would just be picked out with paint. Or I might not and just slap the packs on.😵 OC.
  3. Evening all following with popular requests I ahve started on the KGL Line Infantry that was sent down to support the Light Infantry defending the Farm, constructed and primed with flat back acrylic, these ones for some reason have better back detail so I think I can leave off the packs. OC.
  4. Yep , the plan (for want of a word) is to place the KGL light all over the farm with thier rifles, also mixing it with thier line brothers, then I will use the same figures when I get more to do Sharpy boys 95th little group defending the end of the wall between the sandpits and the gravel road. Sort of a plan. OC.
  5. Got to wait on some Green paint for the KGL Light colours, but will do a few when I get them and paint. OC.
  6. Thanks Ken, yep I think messing around trying to correct thier backs will be more than its worth. OC.
  7. OK just for you I will build a KGL Line Infantry person resplendent in his Red and Grey uniform and with his Musket.☺️ OC.
  8. Yep the packs contain - part of the coat tails, Ammo box, and even the scabbard all moulded together. OC.
  9. Its great having you showing us all your work Ray, please continue to its an inspiration and a pleasure to watch. OC.
  10. Do you know Mark even the coat tails are moulded onto the packs - so they assume everyone will be fitted. OC.
  11. It would have been an excellent idea if they had thought about people not wanting to put the packs on. 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.
