  1. Nice work lou, those belts look mighty fine mate. OC.
  2. Really nice work craig, it reaslly does look the business. OC.
  3. More progress - I closed up the fuselage - will need a bit of tidy up on the seams, but it went really well. Pictures when I have cleaned up the seams. OC.
  4. Cockpit is better than no cockpit - imagine the pilot trying to fly without it🙃 OC.
  5. Some nice detail there EG looking forward to seeing more (I understand your frustration over getting parts) I think the world will see a mass of kits made during this madness. OC.
  6. Thank you kindly Ken, what stands out about the kit is not just the fit of parts but also the quality of the plastic, its has a more solid feel to it yet in scale thickness. OC.
  7. Thank you Mark, very kind of you, Im really impressed in the accuracy of it - very tight tollerances but it just fits well. OC.
  8. Same from me carl, that is some lovely detail work you have done - lovely job. OC.
  9. Congrats on the purchase - that will make a great build. OC.
  10. A bit more progress to day (boy I love the fit of this kit so far - it almost falls together) next was to paint and fit the two pedals, quite straight forward they pop in below the bottom frame, next I glued the other side to close up the cabin bath tub assembly. After putting this aside - I woked on the two fuselage sides adding a few more fittings that were then painted and weathered, I thne did a dry fit - all seems well with the fuselage going together well. OC.
  11. Exellent work indeed - you have chosen The referenece kit for HMS Victory and what a superb start you have made on her. OC.
  12. Phil you are making some Superb progress - its a pure delight to see your baby build into such a loverly piece of art. OC.
  13. Kevin its looking mighty fine - take no notice what others think, your attention to detail and workmanship is outstanding in everything you build. OC.
  14. Most important thing lou - try to keep your spirits up and I am sure everyone else agrees - this is our family on here and we are all here for each other. OC.
  15. Thanks denis, its RAF Cockpit Green straight out the jar diluted 50/50 then brush painted on. OC.
  16. Hi Lou, thank you for the kind words, the instrument panel is made of pre painted PE sections - a backing piece with the clocks painted on, then next the frontage with the dials and last a center section, after fitting them I dropped some semi gloss top coat onto the dials, superb craftsmanship. 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.
