  1. At first my phone/camera was playing up hence why some of the pics were fuzzy, but thanks for bringing it to my attention. OC.
  2. Just a couple of pics to show the fuselage/wing joining, as I said needs a bit of filling. OC.
  3. Hi all, right here is the first camo coat on the spit - out of the box and de gased. OC.
  4. Evening all. or shall I say morning / afternoon to my friends, so after spending an afternoon in the back yard, I decided to work on the bomb bay parts still needed, I started by spraying the bomb bay doors - then put them away in the box to dry, next I put the Four 500Lb HP bombs together inlcuding slimming down the rear fin area, they still need spraying Green and having the Red and white rings painted on. OC.
  5. Thats our family on here for you - looking out for each other. OC.
  6. Just had a cheeky peep at the first couple of Grey layers I sprayed on the other day - looking nice, love the way the panel lines really show through the paintwork - love this Eduard kit. OC.
  7. Do you know Phil, some people build a kit using normal routines and straight forward precedures, then someone like yourself says "heck that - that aint enough - I want to put my own stamp on it" that is what you are doing - its not just boat building or even scratch building, its Artistry my friend. Keep going this is a Special build. OC.
  8. Thank you so much mate, yep it was hit or miss, guess my dad was sitting over my shoulder - pushing me on with her. OC.
  9. Now you got us Curiousssssssssss, needs a rabbit tapping leg (frantically) emoji. OC.
  10. Hello again, A bit more progress on this - this evening I dry fitted the wings to fuselag, and after doing a bit of filing/sanding - I glued them into place, not quite as good a fit as the Eduard kit - so it will need a bit of filling with putty here and there. No pics as the phone was charging. OC.
  11. Thank you Edward, a bit more to do yet - bomb bay doors (with possible bombs - have them in the kit) hatchway door with entrance ladder, props/spinners, aerial and its done. OC.
  12. Really really nice work Kevin - sure is standing out with all that detail, well worth all the hard work and time you have put into her. OC.
  13. Evening All, in between working on the Seafire I found the time to check over mossie to see how the flat coats had gone especially over that troubled area we all know well, then answer is Fine, no issues atb all the top spray put on in a couple of fine sprays did the job. Here are two pics just showing "that troubled area" as it is now. OC.
  14. Good day all, more work fiddling around in the machine gun box - I fiited a couple of runs of fine fuse wire to represent wiring, also I fitted a larger piece of tubing and a bracing strip. OC.
  15. 20mm and a 0.5inch Browning in total Two 20mm Hispano canons and Four 0.5Inch Brownings, the round box shown is just the feed, the Ammo cases were further to the side under the wing in armour plated covers, and fed on a chain. 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.
