  1. Daniel (Dafi in this forum) on his Victory build does surgery and transplantation on his very real pose figures. Just click on the pic. Page 39 of his build log shows the full effect. It will wow you. Dave
  2. I am pretty sure Chuck waxes those lines as they are made. Nice build so far Ozark. Dave
  3. What a beautiful build. I have been to this museum and like you was fascinated with this boat. I took a few pics as well - yours look great. As I recall the lighting was quite suppressed in this part of the museum. The dead eyes in the museum caught my attention - the lanyard holes were not centered as I expected but were offset further into the dead eye. One of your pics shows that as well. Dave
  4. As always: incredible detail Daniel. It looks like it is ready for the BBQ crew. Dave
  5. Geoff I do not have my sea legs on the shrouds yet. Are they paired starboard to port or port to port and starboard to starboard?
  6. Thank you - I have not made much progress after losing my shipyard to the car in our garage. The open deck came as an after thought to the lights - seemed a shame to close it in and several members on this forum made suggestions about it - open beams won the day. As far as the plans go and where they are from I will have to research again. I printed them quite some time ago and now the reference eludes me.
  7. I like the protective helm box. Nice idea. I also love the beam layout. I have been struggling with figuring out if diagonal knees are even possible on my build. Yours look great. Dave

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.
