  1. There should be window sashes (if I correctly found the translation from Russian).
  2. Hi, RMC! There is no point in making a hole! Inside there is nothing to show. My bird is completely white and unlike duck))) I think that Granado can be painted as in AOS.
  3. Hi, RMC! My method, it may be interesting for you.
  4. RMC, will you make the decoration on the bulkhead screens? The decals from the kit are terrible. I tried to draw it. I'm not a painter)))
  5. I'll show my way of rigging guns. It seems to me that the coils of the ropes look more realistic. In general, I really like your Granado. Very good work.
  6. I finished my Jotika HMBV Granado in 2013, the hull covered with Pinotex Wood Oil (based on linseed oil). Now looks pretty.
  7. You have not seen the stern of the new kit of Master-korabel - tender Avos! That's where a lot of fancy bits)))
  8. I am familiar with the one of the developers of the kit. When I told him about my failure, he replied that it was necessary to grind off about half the thickness of the first skin (there is 1.5mm plywood). And that is not shown in the instructions. This is difficult to fix if you make a mistake, because there is not enough plank length.
  9. Current builds:

    Brigantine Phoenix - Master Korabel


    HMBV Granado - Jotika/Caldercraft

    Independence - Artesania Latina

  10. Hi, SpyGlass! Greetings from Sevastopol, in this city was the naval base of the Phoenix)) Phoenix is a very good kit, I'm also building it now. I want to say, when grinding, you need to grind off about half the thickness of the first planking. In another case, the second planks may not be installed precisely enough, as I did - the length of the planks was not enough. I was very upset(( Unfortunately, there is no reserve in the length of the second planks. In the bow, everything fits perfectly.

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.
