  1. Looking great Carl have to keep remembering the scale 1/72 does not give a very large canvas to work on. OC.
  2. Good day all a bit more progress - I dug out the spit out of the box as it had enough time to de gas and is now smell free, think it came up ok. OC.
  3. My rats nearly sent me cross eyed so difficult to keep them uniform - but you are doing a fine job. OC.
  4. Just plain crazy good work at that scale phil, so much scratch building delight going on - full credit to you mate bringing her alive. OC.
  5. Hello again All, while sorting through my little box's yesterday for my other builds, I cam across some scall metal (Black) anchor chain that must have come with my other Pontos bits, but went missing - didn't know I had it, anyway "question -question" is it worth me removing the plastic kit chain that was painted white, and replacing with this scale Black metal chain? OC.
  6. PD would be cool guess because its the newer of the Two awsome plane though gave some F15s a run for their money. OC.
  7. Evening all, more progress on the cockpit I started by painting the instrument panel this had the sight added then shaded/highlighted, after it was glued to the main assembly the whole thing was pushed in place in the fuselage. OC.
  8. Very nice - somthing about early Suzi's with that dropped down fairing style. OC.
  9. I think a show has to be one thing at max or another - do a high speed fly through at near supersonic but also do more graceful wing perfomances, the in betweens spoil it modern jets just doing wing slides and power turns are boring to be honest. OC.
  10. Very good display very tight - not a lot of speed but the sound makes up for it. OC.
  11. Have you seen the Swiss dispay team with theirs? OC.
  12. Sounds like a good plan - getting planks to sit down can be like an uphill battle its as if the little blitters have a will of their own, my mistake was being too impatient not giving the wood glue enough time under pressure to set. OC.
  13. I sneezed on my laptop "upsssss think I have it a virus" OC.
  14. Well done finishing her - the sails really brought the kit to life. Whats next? OC.
  15. I know the wood has let you down my friend - but you are doing a fine job of getting past the hurdles, its credit to you and your abilities - keep up the great work Mark you will crack it. OC.
  16. As Edward and Gregory said - she is looking really nice well on track mate. OC.
  17. Just got back on our internet has been down for about Two hours, anyway plan latter is to make the instrument consol - paint and weather it. OC.
  18. Evening all, while waiting for the Mossie to have her touch up, and the spit to de-gas, I decided to continue with my seafire - next to work on was to paint the cockpit/seat section - this had the normal colours applied, then a bit of shading/highlighting, then I fitted the seat belts that was in the form of decals, after I gave the whole thing a few coats of flat top coat. OC.
  19. I just wasn't paying attention or reading it correctly - call it a senior moment.☹️ 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.
