  1. picture gallery tape is neutral. I use it to frame my pastel pictures to prevent dust and insect incursion. one of my other hobbies....shown here an old paratrooper.
  2. Cheers Pieter.... will have to share Unicorn's time with Bellona's rigging which I have not done anything with since May.
  3. a few pics of Unicorn. I bought this kit for about £15.00. Took a chance because it is very old but it appears to be ok. Had to buy some new instructions because they had seen better days and in a day I had got the frame and keel under way.
  4. Bought this very old Corel Unicorn kit for pennies a while back....whilst doing the rigging on Bellona, I need something else to do as rigging gets on my nerves. Will post some pics soon.
  5. and I have also started to build HMS Unicorn too.....will have to set up a build log for her soon.
  6. right about time I got some rigging done.....the rugby world cup has ended badly for England so time to get the ropes out......for the rigging of course.
  7. the long rigging road has started to be travelled.
  8. right a few weeks off ….now onto the rigging...….
  9. Wallace.....I have more than enough ports by corel if you want them....Quite happy to post to you FOC if you decide that is the route you are going down.
  10. tend to agree with a lot of what you say, and the personal agendas were blatantly obvious. As to whether it would have been shown if the results were different, not sure about that but again I probably agree with you on that also. You are not prejudiced in the way you think or what you say.
  11. it does have its limitations but for the yards it is ok
  12. Just watched a fascinating documentary of the Mary Rose and the DNA samples taken from several of the remains found on the ship after it was brought up from the Solent....it now transpires that fighting along side the English on board ship that day were at least two crewmen whose origins were from North Africa and from Italy and Spain.. Tudor England was more diverse than we realise.

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.
