  1. taking a break from the lane from a bit and working on the halifax, needed to ponder some stuff on the lane since the structions are kinda bland on the stuff that goes on the deck, and time to find real pictures of the ship
  2. ya not likeing a solid hull least my next model is gonna be the halifax, be starting that once i get a few more supplies, nailer, and stuff
  3. so the guns are a little tall, thought i had taken enough off but didnt, so have to add another rail to fix that , unless the ship is supposed to look for submarines
  4. hariat lane, halifax in the back burner to start

  7. well ran into my 1st problem, i over lapped the copper just a little to much and ran out SOB, kinda funny if u think about it though
  8. really am liking ur build is giving me good ideas as this is my 1st wood model, done plastic, such a difference. any help would be awsome or ideas i wish i could post my build as i go but my pics are way to big have to have my fiance adjust the camara lol
  9. i have to figure out how to make my picture files smaller they are to big, sigh for now im using a few ideas from sloogan, really liked the rivets in the copper and a brass pipe,
  10. so thought id do the hariat lane steam paddle cutter, am planking the sides, so not to far into it, but if any one has any suggestions on the masts once i get there that would be helpful, the instructions are vague on lots, shoulda actually read up on dificulty lvl for this one. ive done many reg plastic models and the uss const and cutty sark a few times so rigging is not new, mainly wondering what to use for the sails to be bunched up and best way to do that i suppose

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.
