  1. Hello Ian thanks, I follow your work on HMS Unicorn have upset the kit Corel making amazing the vessel. I admire you I must resume my "Unicorn" but in the meantime I devoted myself to some plastic kits as the "Vittorio Veneto" in 1/700 and updated the "Rome" Gianni
  2. thanks Robin , I must resume my vessels, but in the meantime I devoted myself to some plastic kits as the "Vittorio Veneto" in 1/700 and updated the "Rome"I must resume my vessels, but in the meantime I devoted myself to some plastic kits as the "Vittorio Veneto" in 1/700 and updated the "Rome" Gianni
  3. Trumpeter Kit Scale 1/350 Italian Battleship of World War II. This was my first plastic kit made
  4. I go along rather slowly with the Unicorn, post soon some work done, in the meantime I show you some news to populate the vessel. Amati sailors are from 22mm to paint, I used the colors matt Toffano and the set of Andrea Miniatures, street I still have a lot but I think they'll look great on the deck of the Unicorn. I also bought a Hat box of sailors in 1/72 scale ... I will try to utilize some element. Hello Gianni
  5. I finished the elements of the spur of the bow, "Trinche" bowsprit, polena painted and I added networks for the hammocks .
  6. Hello everyone, I show you some work in progress ... I have not been faithful to the original plans Chapman ... hard work that is not currently satisfies me a lot but do not think I can do best is yet to be finalized; I'm replacing the "candlesticks" with supports for the cots self built using paper clips and Amati eyelets cut. I added the photo of the Victory, and in fact my vertical elements are too straight should be more curved. Gianni
  7. Hi Mike...incredible I did not know that there were original plans, a bit like the plans of the Corel kit ... I thought they were not very realistic windows and mirror do the stern, which I took as inspiration for the HMS Surprise or similar vessels. Hi Gianni
  8. Hello Ian, hello Mike in effect work in this area is particularly delicate, I saw the work of Dan Vadas ... great for my Unicorn acoontenterei me a clean job, I thought, I do not know how to explain, I would like the four elements of support vertical and three "snakes" horizontal, more or less as proposed by the HMS Diana Ray, (a really nice job and a nice ship) hello Gianni
  9. I wanted to take me on with the job and I realized the new elements of the stem; I have not worked in a methodical manner, the work does not satisfy me, so I guess I'll just make everything again Gianni
  10. Hello to all I leave you some updates made​​: replaced the doors on the side of the stern, I made the supports for the boat, reviewed the position of the ladders of access to the lower deck, I began to realize the lifeboat with the technique suggested by Uanca, I made two new balustrades and replaced on the ropes the steering wheel. Hello Gianni

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.
