    That is impressive, OC.  Years ago someone did the Battle of Gettysburg (US Civil War battle) and it was huge and impressive also.

    Instead I just got all my  soldiers out all over the living room floor  my mum used to go mad as she couldn't move for treading on my armies.

    The standard of photography on this site is normally exceptional. I suppose numpty's like me have come to take it for granted.

    A dedicated camera doesn't have to be expensive; I've been using a Fujifilm Z2 compact for years which I bought second hand and it was ten years old when I got it. Every time I download to my laptop I'm astonished how good it is. Stay safe.

    What I will do  Is to do some updated pics now I have my  phone camera working better  (same one I use for my  aircraft builds  in here)   I have some work to do on the Ole Girl  (new chain)   so will do some fresh pics then.

    Hi, I was hunting around and found your build, which looks like a grand job, I hope you don't mind me saying how disappointed I am with the fuzzy photography. I've trawled through 3 or 4 pages and given up. Such a shame.

    At first my  phone/camera was playing up  hence why some of the pics were fuzzy, but thanks for bringing it to my attention.



  5. Evening all. or shall I say  morning / afternoon to my friends,   so  after spending an afternoon in the back yard,   I decided to  work on the  bomb bay  parts still needed, I started by spraying the bomb bay doors - then put them away in the box to dry,   next  I put the Four 500Lb  HP  bombs together  inlcuding slimming down the rear fin area, they still need spraying Green  and having the Red and white rings  painted on.




  6. Do you know Phil, some people build a  kit  using normal  routines and  straight forward precedures,   then  someone like yourself says  "heck that  - that aint enough  - I want to put my own stamp on it"     that is what you are doing  - its not just boat building or even scratch building,   its Artistry my friend.


    Keep going  this is a Special build.

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.
