  1. I can see a few being put into this build, im still very early into the build and no doubt a few areas will require a little help from mother nature
  2. Good evening everyone i put quite a bit of thought into the bridge roof last night and eventually fell asleep with no solution, then whilst walking the dog came up with this, now i have a way ahead (small steps) other than that today has been spent on the hull with the bilge keels, will cover that this week so now i have a removable roof panel which will allow access after the interior is fitted out
  3. i see it decided to put the photo in reverse, but i am happy with the results so far, like the victory i have no intentions of her being a show room condition build, LOL i cannot work like that, she will also need to be well weathered,
  4. Good evening everyone the wheel house assembly continues, im determined this time to complete projects and report progress if anyone is interested, and not post other bits that i have started until relevant,
  5. Thank you for the comments of course i will post the dock progress but will have to wait until i get a holiday, hope to get a week of in July or August when i also need to put in 60' of fencing as well as ours got storm damaged, i have however got lots going on with the trawler build
  6. lol i still look at Gils and wish mine was as good as his did you find what you were looking for?
  7. yet another build that i have followed from the start coming to the end, she looks fantastic
  8. Good evening everyone managed to get the wheel house assy how i wanted it to look, the top external panelling will be varnished at some time in the future, as i dont want it looking pristine i would like to be able to remove the roof, any ideas anyone? or suggestions of how the inside of this unit can be seen
  9. Good morning everyone well until i have a weeks holiday, when i will have the opportunity to build the dock diorama to finish the Victory, i was left with the decision of what to do next, and for the same reasons i will delay the start of the Amerigo Vepucci (the mess) so yesterday i made a start on the trawler Grimsby UK has a museum dedicated to the builders of all hulls made by the company, and they reckon they will have some plans available for me this summer, so that i can sort out the internal details, but that leaves me plenty to do Wheel house LOL i cut out the the bridge window panel (took hours and then snapped it in 1/2 as i tried to fit it so made another in plastic card the wheel house assembly is split into several sections the chart room and radio room, the partitions that were in place have been removed for now as i want to adapt them for some hidden wires that will bring some lighting in the top portion of the bridge front is panelled but apparently the same colour as below it, im not sure thats how i want to do it though so
  10. My build is completed with the exception of the stand which is going to be in the form of number 2 dock in Portsmouth
  11. i am for now calling the build FINISHED i needs a to build the stand in the form of number 2 dock in Portsmouth, for which i am collecting reference material, as a result of doing this i am going to delay putting any more rope coils on incase any lines are damaged during the transfer, when done i will do the final reveal

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.
