  1. Thats looking really nice - love the detail and history regarding the engine fire - puts a real persoanl take on the build. OC.
  2. Hiya mate, how could I have missed the start of this - my appologies, anyway I will pull up a bunk and follow along if I may. OC.
  3. Just jumping in here to wish you and yours well - stay safe and well. OC.
  4. Just thinking a head - I think I will mask up and attach the canopies tomorrow as they will protect the delicate cockpit parts - gun sight etc. OC.
  5. I feel your pain with cockpit canopy woes - It almost ended my Mossie build, thesee canopies seem to come so delicate where by the slightest touch and they break or not glue down well enough. Hope you get it sorted mate - fingers crossed you will. OC.
  6. Hi all, right "Pictures-pictures-pictures" I did some light wet and dry sanding along the join seams (not a lot) then It was time to start on the lower wing section, this is a one piece unit except for the wing tips, fitted to this is a strut and weel well walls, these are made up in three sections each side, again very good fit and quality, to aid strength I ran some glue around the outsides. I thought I would include a pic to show the excellent fine detail on the bottom of the wing - this is evedent all over the model. OC.
  7. That is looking nice - so much detail crammed Into the space. OC.
  8. I hear you mate, the media doesn't help - if anything its making things feel worse, I try not to watch any of it, try to stay focused on coming on here keep your mind off the madness that the world has created. OC.
  9. Really nice work craig, it reaslly does look the business. OC.
  10. 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.
  11. Cockpit is better than no cockpit - imagine the pilot trying to fly without it🙃 OC.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Thank you Mark, very kind of you, Im really impressed in the accuracy of it - very tight tollerances but it just fits well. 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.
