  1. Its ok mate they just look a little smaller on the screen without clicking them, great work all the same. OC.
  2. Piet, Superb in every way, you have made history and woken spirits looking down on you, you should be so proud of what you have done. OC.
  3. What truly amazes me (in a good way) is the way this kit shows the corect shape of the bend of the deck towards the bow, a few kits of these generic destoyer models do not have the correct shape, requiring some radiacl re shaping. OC.
  4. Hiya mate, I agree you cant really go wrong how ever you tackle the next stage, I found bending and spacing the first planking for the hull, to be the most taxing and difficult, and it wasn't until I purchased one of those (heat plank benders - looks like an electrical soldering iron but without the soldering tip). But you could always do the build in different stages like - putting the false deck in first then adding a few hull planks then start a few deck planks from the centerline. Its really a veried situation without any particular set rules, just try to mix the easy steps with the difficult ones. OC.
  5. One would hope there would be a hand rail around the edges to stop you falling off, I suspect it could be true - look at all those airlines offering fantastic one way flights. OC.
  6. Its going to be a true museum piece of art, I so hope you construct a fitting show case for it, your amazing work so deserves to be shown to its full potential. OC.
  7. I used to know someone who kept a very large Iron for his flat earth theory, he also thought on the other side it was just plain. OC.
  8. I love the red lower hull color carl, it looks like RN Anti fouling red, I assume this would have been kept constant. OC.
  9. Im actually really impressed with gregs building skills especially as he has to build then upside down. OC.
  10. Dont worry lou, when im free from family things I will bring some Rum and pizza's over, and some ping pong balls to throw at greg. (oh and some glass cutters to get through gregs glass case) OC.
  11. "Hey - leave my mate a lone, he will have to suffer my jokes when I am up to it" 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.
