  1. Almost done now. Just waiting for some jewellery findings to finish it off. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
  2. Thanks guys. Hi all I saw these dental sticks in a shop somewhere and thought they must be usefull in modelling, well I've found a first use for them. Also made the casters for the tool chest.
  3. Did some work on the boot lid and the body.
  4. Damaged the roof and had to respray the whole thing again (if the rest of the masking comes off like this I think I got away with it) Cut some of the tiles away from the edge to give a bit more room to display things.
  5. The tyres are slicks but I may scuff them up a bit, undecided yet. Hi all well the front end is finished. On the last leg now.
  6. Thanks guys. Not sure a girlie calendar would be fitting, I know it wouldn't be looked upon at work favourably.
  7. Ok so I need something on the tool chest but most of the car is built so not much choice but the rear suspension, problem is the spring plate is moulded integral with the suspension arm (on the car if you were working on the suspension arm you would have left the spring plate on ) so I cut it off and made a new spring plate separate to put on the car (still got to make the casters for the tool chest)
  8. They are made from the chrome poles out of my missus wardrobe (after decommissioning) I then glued the wire ribs round them and drilled some holes for the eye bolts
  9. That tool box looks great (it will have stickers added when finished)
  10. Yep, getting there another couple of weeks I think
  11. Flatted it back the heated it with swmbo's hair drier and resprayed the clear coat( went a bit too far with the flatting back and have had to order some more paint as there is a bit of undercoat showing through in places)
  12. Hi all made a start on the display base, still need to make a tool chest for the back corner.

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.
