  1. this used to be on MSW 1.0 i am hoping to find some of the older phots now lost, but have found this so far, enjoy, http://modelismoprofesionaldeescenas.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/trabajos-en-construcciondiorama-de.html
  2. I was on a business trip this week to a town called Fort Nelson. (Northern British Columbia, Canada) 58° 48′ 21.3″ N, 122° 41′ 47.3″ W. At the airport, with nothing to do, I read the local history. The town is named after Lord Nelson, commemorating the Battle of Trafalgar. It was a fur trading post for the North West Company. The local history states the town was founded (or at least named) in 1805. However, it the date is unlikely given that it would take about a year for the news of Trafalgar to reach this remote part of world, considering the only form of transportation in northern Canada was by canoe in the summer months.
  3. Bought my Victory just before Christmas from the proceeds of a house sale. Did a lot of work a few photos but lost them when Hard Drive went down (I was a computer progammer before retiring always took backups just didnt do i often enough) So unless i can recover then will start from where I am now Have finished first planking and the lowerpart of the second planking. On the two models I have previously completed I planked the hull with scale 5" Planks and on both used tree nails No decent pictures of my Panart Victory from 35 years ago (Valued at £5000 by National Maritime Museum). On the Panart San Felipe i did the same (1 Picture added here will add a seperate blog for this later with photos - its been put on the back burner for now) 1 think i think needs adding is that it is easier to cut the BEFORE adding the Hul Frames mark the Frames and Keel joint across the joint so you know when its lined up other wise you might get the keel out of line 1. Hull with first planks done and most of the hull second planks done. Using uper Gle for second planking mmmmm not sure!! 2 and 3 Main DEck ready to fit - lines are 1.25 inches to lay 4 butt plankin - must make sure the buts end where the deck beams are 4. Gun Ports lines with 1mm to allow for the gun ports to close 5. Caldercraft say to line the Entrance port. Tried to find a picture as the top of the frame is shaped and is NOT painted 6. Stern windows - The incredible etched frames with complete this (Wonder when no bets being taken) 7. Main Entrance - From HMS Victory First Rate 1765 by Jonathan Eastland and Iain Ballantyne - Note the Carving of the Head Rail It amazing how the photos show up even little discrepancies I purchased tis Stand from B&Q (UK) it tilts and lifts special offer 34.00 UKP
  4. Sometimes I can conspire to combine my day job as a journalist with my penchant for maritime history and here's the result featuring bravery, disaster, battles, tsunami, and treasure hunting. A feature on the wreck of Royal navy storeship HMS Buffalo in Mercury Bay New Zealand. The event was 175 years ago this month and there's a number of events on where it happened to mark the anniversary. Writing this yarn threw up some really interesting characters, a tale of drama at sea and the almost forgotten history of an area I have spent summer holidays in since I was a boy. It's a good read, but then I'm biased! A highlight was talking to maritime painter Paul Deacon whose wonderful renditions of the buffalo were used in the illustrations, with an example below. Links to Paul's facebook page with more examples of his great work are at the bottom of the story if you follow the link to it. Also Ken Hindmarsh mentioned in the story has a reproduction of his ancestor's naval service medal ( a cousin holds the original) and it's one of only two ever issued with seven clasps. His battles included the Nile (aboard Bellerophon where he was the only uninjured man on the quarterdeck and ordered the ship away from L'Orient just before she exploded), Trafalgar and others.

  5. http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02488/flag_2488242b.jpg I wish I could tell you more about this image. Its said to be a flag flown at tTrafalgar from the San Ildefonso. Further its said to have been flown over St Paul's Cathedral during Admiral Nelson's funeral.
  6. Hello: My name is Luis and I live in Mexico City. I have always admired the ships from the napoleonic era. I have built scale models for quite a few years now, both scratch and from kits, but this is the first time I post a building log. This ship is the spaniard 80 gunner "Neptuno". Built in 1795 in El Ferrol shipyards, in Spain, she fought at Trafalgar under Captain Cayetano Valdez's command. Taken by the British after a four hour combat, she was recaptured by the Spanish crew but was beached and lost during the storm that followed the battle. The model will be completely stratch-built, out of styrene, cardboard, basswood and balsa wood. Cutting out the paper templates for the frames. Designs for transom and stern gallery False keel. The material is styrene False keel, keel and rudder Stem Frames, starting from stern Quarterdeck

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.
