  1. Friday treat on a Thursday? Thank you, Amalio You made my day.
  2. On my way home from Mt. Vernon after the convention I made a stop at a dear friend of mine. Well, even though the day was grey with rain, the God of Model kits shone on me. This as I was gifted with a started kit of The OcCre San Felipe. The start is beautiful done, so there's no need to do anything to it. Two boxes with more than necessary parts was also provided. I look forward finishing this beauty. So a build should be started I guess.
  3. This past weekend I attended the Biennial convention with Vasa Order of America. This took place in Mt. Vernon in Washington. Next one will happen in two years. These conventions are to establish new board. Some offices needs to be replaced depending on their cycle time. Lots of work but also productive. Two pleasant evenings with various social events.
  4. Amalio, in post #705 you have a ruler placed length wise and marks 520mm. Is that midship? If so, … all I have to say is wow, she will be a big lady. What is the projected height from bottom of keel to top of mast? Very beautiful build!
  5. Aah, my morning treat. Thank you, Amalio
  6. I have this kit as well, got wood deck for her. Will invest in better cannons and rigging. Very likely buying the rope walk from Chuck. What I will do, is to "create" ballast so she won't tip over. Probably using modeling clay. But I will certainly follow the remaining part of this log.
  7. Carl, are you letting the hare to drink the wine?🤣😎
  8. Corner trim in place so is the brass rings for the airport. Test fitting on the deck.mo
  9. Bob, Thank you, you certainly inspired me with your build log.
  10. As I am cheating when building the main cabin, instead of planking the sides I am using a sewing thread to create the illusion of plank separation. When 16" away I can't tell if it's scribed or not. The line is glued into places with diluted wooden glue.

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.
