  1. Very nice Popeye,as usual.Fishing boats are still my favourite.Great job mate.
  2. Congrats Pat beautifull job,nice to get her in a case before the nasty dust gets it.You can just sit back now and look at your ship.
  3. Thanks a lot for all of your compliments.Out of the three versions for sails I think I like furled the most.
  4. Thanks very much Gentlemen,it means a lot to get great compliments.Dave we will be in the new house in September.Another case is on the cards for my Supply as well.The cover is 4.5mm Perspex made by Bnt plastics in Chch and the wooden base made by a guy at work out of rimu.I'll be keeping an eye on all of your builds with interest.Ron.
  5. The case all done,turned out real good.Occre very kindly sent me my missing sail so it's all ready to display in the rebuilt house when we move back in.
  6. Thanks Popeye,just getting the case sorted now.The house is going well,onto the cladding next week.
  7. Awesome job Frank I like your details,well done.
  8. Thanks,there are good female modellers you're right but the comments I have had have been from men so far.
  9. Thanks a lot for your comments men.the 0.25 and 0.5mm thread is caldercraft from cornwall model boats,those sizes in Occre thread were rubbish.I'm getting a guy in Christchurch here to make up an acrylic case top 4.5mm looks a bit stronger than 3mm.One of my work mates is making a base for it so should turn out well.After we move back to our rebuilt house after the eartquakes in September I've got a plastic huey to do then maybe a Chinese junk,i like them after visiting China.We'll see.
  10. Thanks very much for all of your great comments,i can just sit here and look at it now.If anyone else does this kit follow the measurements on the plan not the ones in the colour instruction book.Now for a rest and follow all of your builds.Thanks for looking in and for your help.Ron.

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.
