  1. I understand what you meen - this shot I took also shows the frames and texture of the hull plating. OC.
  2. I recommend these dan, I use them on my Warspite and understand they are authentic colors for Hood aswel. OC.
  3. We are trying Duty @dutythefilm ‏ 1805 England is at war with France and Spain. Napoleon is set to invade England, all that stands in his way is the Royal Navy. copyright Jeremy Webb. @jemweb OC.
  4. I decided today (well the admiral did) to tidy out a cupboard so I could better home my boat bits, very good job was done so it was double rum and biscuits, after doing this it inspired me to work out my next progress with the build. It occured to me that the hatchway with steps (still needed steps) anyway its right next to where the capstan will be located (and as I dont want any accident claims from sailors falling down the hatch whilst doing capstan duties) I have decided to lay a few planks fitted flush with the hatch frame, have to make the ship as safe as possible the crew will have enough to contend with during battle. OC.
  5. If by having a look at my build (as I too am building a 18th century Frigate) it would be an honour and if you cane get any tips from by build - that would be great. OC.
  6. Any kit is achievable patience and time and most important - enjoying it. OC.
  7. I was going to leave it for one of the mods to welcome you to our unique little family, but I thought I would anyway. OC.

  9. Lovely work and what a great subject. Have you seen this I posted - https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/18038-new-film-about-nelson-and-trafalgar/ OC.
  10. I think its a facinating subject and possibly one of the most colorful aspects of naval warfare and history, and potentialy could have changed europe in so many ways if nelson and all who where with him, had not won on that day. OC.
  11. So much facinating info above. So hope that the film my friend has written and is currently being looked at by a famous film producer, will bring all this to light in a fantastic way. OC.
  12. Thank you pat, im quite happy with paint scheme now, it took a few goes but got there I feel. OC.
  13. Looking very good, so much commanality between hood and warspite with the position of the props. OC.
  14. Thank you so much darrell for those kind comments, its a very exciting journey and its been well said the potential for this film is Huge, the script is in the hands of a well known film director friend of mine at the moment, he is giving it a thorough look over before coming back to me. 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.
