  1. Yeah but when I look at it I am there and that you have to put yourself there also kinda like reading a good book. Kevin
  2. When I look at the build it seems it would be relaxing work? Kevin
  3. I think I leave it as is looks fine just like it sits.The process of staining the the deck any is going to lead back to the plane to give the whole picture harmony. Kevin
  4. trust me these type of bulds are few and far in between for me i like simple at my age. Kevin Thks
  5. Thks OC got the top of the R/W dusted and chipped the engine and leading edge then another very thin misted coat of clear it matches the top of the fuselage. Kevin
  6. Today has been decals,props and wash day.I made up a solution of burnt umber from a tube and thinner and started on the panel lines and just kept looking at the silver to bright/clean?So,I started with the tailplanes undersides liked the effect just enough lay down a coat wait about one minute or so and gently wipe witha smooth paper towel. The first pic shows the solution laid to the back of the bombbay door.Pic2 shows the whole side done.Pic3 shows the area behind the bomb bay untouched and Pic4 shows OD and decals all swapped down though subtle the decals are dirty now.I think when all done and in natural lighting it will all show. Kevin
  7. It shant be to far away in the near distant future the box is just about empty. Kevin
  8. Titled renamed the West was fun while it lasted Kevin
  9. You know OC they make a canopy glue almost like a white glue maybe like Gator Glue that goes on thick and have a q-tip ready(pointy ones Tamyia I like) damp it on the tongue and wipe.The glue fills those gaps for you you do not need it often but bombers seem to have more problems. Kevin Oh and a good save!
  10. Thks OC Last pics for the night engine done and L/LG together the parts box is getting empty Kevin
  11. The engine should be done tonight wanted to show a pic of the ignition wires as they go in only 14 more to do and 14 pipes out the back. Kevin

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.
