  1. Good evening folks, I have decided my next move with my build will be to increase the width of the black band that was just covering the wale, I will measure an equal gap from the top feature edging downwards to above the top of the wale and mark a line, I will then mask this and fill in with the same black as the wale. Here is a picture of similar frigate to show how I want to extend the black band. OC.
  2. I had to do a similar thing with my stick down wood sheet deck on my Warspite as it was slightly too short compared to the hull, I made my join/gap in the center between superstrucer blocks. OC.
  3. Wow! that hull looks real nice so smooth she is coming along so well. OC.
  4. Just posting a link to the discussion about the film I have mentiond folks - Please have a visit. OC.
  5. Hi All, I have a good friend who has an extensive interest in Nelson and all things Navy, he has put considerable time into creating an amazing script for a new film all about Lord Nelson and his life going all the way through to his death at Trafalgar. I have been helping him promote this excellnet film, we have put the script forward to an interested film director/producer, and as they say "time will tell". It will be the most complete film about Nelson ever produced and a true Epic of a film. Here is a link to the Twitter page for it - Duty @dutythefilm ‏ Follows you 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. Thank you sincerely for looking, any questions please get 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.
