  1. I used hairspray/straiteners and a hair dryer and got funny looks of the admiral - I am bald. OC.
  2. Please count me in bob, I will bring a nice comfy chair that you are more than welcome to use if you wish. OC.
  3. Looking good keep up your vit C and be careful around the admiral, when I am not well my admiral calls it man flu - in her words a not very serious condition lol. OC.
  4. I would suggest to start planking your inside walls using the frames as guides attaching the plankes to the inside of the frames, but also making some other strengtheners between the frames, as you will be having to make your gun ports. As long as the plankes attached to the frames are not to thick, you should be fine keeping the scale thickness of the side of the middle gun deck, as it would have been atleast 2 feet thick if not more. Regards. OC.
  5. What a Superb job you have done bob, not just your beautiful workmanship but also your step by step guides, I know not only myself but others will have found your build so enjoyable. Thank you. OC.
  6. Thank you pat, I have picked up a mirrorless 4/3 system, its lighter and more adjustable than my old giant, I still have my cam phone for the macro shots. Here is the new toy. OC.
  7. Have you thought about doing the UK Royal Navy equivalent next - Type 45 Destroyer OC.
  8. Hi there, thank you for that, yep it has had a good amount of sanding, but also a couple of re-builds, the deck was re-done as I wasn't happy with the planking, its deffinatlly a case of improving the more time and more you do, I know next time I do a deck it will be even better. 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.
