  1. WOW don she is looking superb, so fast aswel. OC.
  2. Hi all, today I got round to finishing of fitting the ladder on the poop deck, after fitting and gluing, a liitle bit of light sanding was done then I applied a coat of top coat. Siincere thanks to all those who view/like and comment on my build. Here's a couple of current build pics. OC.
  3. Yes indeed bob get well soon, your friendship on here with us all so outways any loss of quality you feel may be lacking, you are doing a wondeful job, keep well and good health to you. OC.
  4. Looking really nice, glad you had a great time in Portsmouth and going over Vic. OC.
  5. Very nice tidy work, that hull just looks sublime so smooth. OC.
  6. As promissed here are the photos from the front bulkhead ladder (I decided to paint it red ocre to match the bulkhead) and also the knightheads that have received a coat of black paint. OC.
  7. Thank you so much for the kind words and looking in OC.
  8. Lovely lovely work, your build is so much inspiration for my own build. OC.
  9. A little more progress tonight, firstly I discovered my own design fault with the extended forecastle deck, the edge of this ends close to the second canon port opening, and a ladder was supposed to be placed here, but it would be in the way of the canon and working crew, I thought about building a small deck extention (lke on the Victory from her poop deck) but that wont look right, so I decided to create a small verticle ladder fitted against the forward bulkhead, possibly with a rope secured into both decks by a ring attachment. I aslo worked on and fitted the two knightheads, from a piece of 1.5 1mm that had to be reduced in thickness by 50% where it fits against the front curved bulwark. Pictures tomorrow. OC.
  10. Wowzer what a colorful looking boat. I used to have and play an Ibanez SR in Red and a tennor/alto sax. OC.
  11. I see, thank you for explaining that, I have seen the sam cut out in a few gratings on different ships. 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.
