  1. Question - can you catch it off someones Fart???? OC.
  2. We are slowlyyyyyyy getting the hang of it, trouble with us old folk we like consistancy and regularity, change throws a spanner in the works. OC.
  3. I always thought the Mighty Hood looks great as a waterline model due to her unique shape and freeboard on her rear deck (constantly wet) she has that slim lined look also makes her look really elegant but also deadly. OC.
  4. Thank you kindly, several more to build yet inlcuding me dad. OC.
  5. Figure making time - to be precise the Pilot, after making him and painting/weathering he came to life but wanted to play with the tractor first, then He stood up on it wanting his photo taken, then "play time over" so he made his way to the Mossie ladder. OC.
  6. Now were talking Mark, those ladders look bang on the money, very very nice mate. OC.
  7. Thanks Mark, yep it will be quite busy - I have a few more bits and pieces to add then the figures. OC.
  8. Evening all, more progress this eve, first I found some thin grey-ish wire I cut it into lengths that seemed about right, then I drilled a small hole in the end, then I pushed it over a plastic pole protruding from the front part of the starter, then I coiled it around the handle and added a touch of ca to hold it in place. Next I assembled the oil bowser tank, after painting I did the same with the hose as I did the wiring earlier, this time I coiled it round and looped it around the drum of the bowser and connected it to the feed assembly. So here is a family photo showing all the bits done so far. OC.
  9. Hope all works out for you mate, fingers crossed it will. OC.
  10. Evening all, another item was made earlier in the shape of a ground power unit - basically a power transformer in a box with a handle on wheels, I still have to come up with the power lead - this I will make from some 5amp black wire. Next up will be a oil tank. OC.
  11. Afternoon all, after more progress with the tractor - now we have Two vehicles finished. OC.
  12. Better then to mask off the (Painted wings) and not have to mask the polished fuse. OC.
  13. If you can - do the wings first in the paint finish you want - then concentrate on your magic on the fuselage after, will be easier to mask the wings to then do your metal work than the other way round - just my 10 pence worth. OC.
  14. It reminds me of the old (80-90s) American Airlines polished metal scheme (used to love that scheme on MD11's. OC.
  15. She looks great Denis - credit to you for keep going and overcoming some of the hick ups you had, she really looks the part now. OC.
  16. Evening all, I managed to get a bit more work done on the tractor, I am basically making it look quite bashed up dirty with lots of use, as I asume they would be. OC.
  17. I agree also it looks really good, I think what might be distracting away from the fine finish is not having the rest of the plane completed - then it will really shine through and look mighty impressive. Your doing a fine job bro.👍 OC.
  18. I have owned two french cars a Megane and a Citroen ZX, both quite decent cars. OC.
  19. Thought I should mention that at 1/48 scale these things including the jeep are actually quite small, the jeep is about 2 - 3 inches long, and my pics are quite close up showing more than 1/1 scale. 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.
