  1. I just received the Joy Yard Missouri kit. A cursory inspection shows that the advertisement hype is no exaggeration. Even the packaging is first class. The PE is in a separate box wrapped like a piece of jewelry. The details are really outstanding. The instruction manual is full color and appears very complete. The directions for bending a PE part specify which direction and how many degrees of bend to use. I only hope I can do this kit justice, it will be a challenge in deed. I have to finish my Indianapolis first. Here are some pictures to show some of the kit highlights. Enjoy, Harley
  2. Hi everyone, this will be a record of my attempt to complete the huge challenge that is Trumpeters Mighty MO. the addition of both pontos kits only compounds this challenge. I have almost everything. I’m just waiting on the advanced add on kit to arrive. I recently completed Trumpeters Bismarck. The MO is 4 inches longer! I won’t bore anyone with photos of every sprue, but heres the color scheme and paint chart. Now I wish I could use tamiya paints as I like them and I am comfy airbrushing them, but their color selection for the MO is horrible. so I got these 2 sets from AK interactive. I hope they airbrush ok. any thoughts? I’m also considering Model Air and AK real colors of ww2. If I can find the colors needed. I got this Eduard mini kit of hull plates. The first of the Pontos kits dry transfers theres 50 of these to build! I went with the blue deck because it looks better to me. thats all for now. The 2nd Pontos kit should be here anyday now.
  3. Hello everyone. This will by my first attempt at a build thread. Also, this is my first attempt at a ship model in over forty years. I thought I would start with a easy build, so I picked up Revell 1:535 USS Missouri. There is not a lot of detail on this model and I can't find that there is a photoetch set for this model. I started by working to get the hull and the deck to fit correctly. The froward area of the hull was bowed in, so I added extra tabs to the underside of the deck to make it fit. After gluing it up and lots of sanding, the hull/deck fit is starting to look better. The anchor chains were molded in, so I removed them to the chain plates and will replace them with metal chain. Please let me know if I have started this thread correctly and please feel free to add any comments to my build. Oh yeah. I don't know a lot of ship terminology, so if I use the incorrect terms please let me know. Bill
  4. Hello, I am new here and I haven't built a model for more than 30 years now. Originally from Germany we recently moved to Switzerland after spending quite some time in New Zealand, Singapore and the Netherlands. Instead of starting small I thought I will go nuts with the full package and add-ons to get a good foundation in place. I actually hoped for the Joy Yards 1/350 Missouri due to the nicely detailed hull and AA stuff but this one seems to be dead in the water. I am aware that this build will probably take some time and patience but nevertheless I thought it would be nice to get a really accurate model in place. I love details and accuracy as long it is archivable with my limited skills and I am happy to invest in additional parts if they will provide some benefit at the end of the day. I am aware that some of the parts are redundant but shouldn't be a major issue at this stage. When I did my research I noticed that some of the items I am planning to use seems seems to be not really known (reviewed) so far. I will try to present them here for future reference. Items ordered so far: Very Fire VF350903 USN Missouri Very Fire VF350009 USN Missouri Super detail upgrade kit Black Cat Models 40mm Bofors Quad Gun MK.2 Mod.3 Black Cat Models 20mm Oerlikon MK.4 Gun with MK.14 Gun Sight Shapeways diStefan 3Dprint USN 20mm Oerlikon MK4 with MK.14 Gun Sight Shapeways diStefan 3Dprint USN 40 Quad Bofors Shieldet Set For references I came across the following sites and builds: https://forums.armchairgeneral.com/forum/military-history-related-hobbies/military-modelling-and-other-hobbies/162037-trumpeter-1-200-scale-bb-63-uss-missouri https://imodeler.com/2017/06/1350-missouri-1944/ http://www.steelnavy.com/Missouri.htm http://www.modelshipgallery.com/gallery/bb/bb-63/Missouri-200-hsk/index.htm Overview of the parts involved: As always I would be delighted to get input and feedback along the way and guidance would be appreciated too.

  5. Hi! After a break I'm back to ship modeling, and this time I'll share the build here aswell! So my next project is the Uss Missouri as she appeared on her last tour in the Operation desert storm. My first form of business is with the hull! Firstly all the details were removed from the hull. After this thorough sanding to get rid of the all the parting lines and minor damages. Then the hull plates were masked and sprayed with Mr surfacer 500. This is by no means 100% correct so bare that in mind! Some other details were done with some masking tape on the top belts. After this Mr surfacer 1200 on top to check how it would look like. And closer look of the effect. Still waiting for the pontos set to arrive, then I'll continue to add the rest of the remaining drain pipes etc. details before continuing to the decks.
  6. - General MacArthur, September 2, 1945, aboard USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay In dedication to the service of my late father, Colonel Charles J. Bauer, who served in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam in his 33-year career, I am building this model of the BB-63 as she looked on September 2, 1945. The build is being sponsored by several companies, and more information will be forthcoming as she begins to take shape. I am starting with 3 sets of the Trumpeter 1:200 Missouri, photo-etch materials, and other equipment. I plan to build two (2) complete models of BB-63, one of the museum (to be named later), and one for my home. The date of the presentation of the finished model is September 2, 2020, which will be exactly 75 years since the end of WWII occurred.
  7. Since my account got lost in the redesign of the site i am going to start this build log. I am building the Tamiya USS Missouri ( as can be guessed by the title). I started this a while back but took a short break to build my friend a 1/35th scale M198 Howitzer (pics below). He was an artilliery man in the Marine Corps. I am enlisting myself so i would like to see if I can finish the Mighty Mo before i ship out. (fingers crossed). I will add pictures soon of what i have completed but i have painted the hull and some of the super sturcture. I have also sanded down the modeled chain and bought a real chain to replace it. I have some PE kits that i hope to expand my skills with and replace some of the stock parts. I also have purchased a wooden deck to be placed over the plastic one. I stumbled upon this site http://www.worldaffairsboard.com/modelers-corner/60395-building-tamiya-missouri-super-detailing.html where someone has built the same model. He adds some REAL detail to it and i have been taking a lot of tips from this sight. Just hope it turns out half as good. I think that is it for now. More to come soon.
  8. Hello, I thought I would post my progress of this great ship from WW2. I started this over a year ago, before I built mt granddaughters doll house and when I kind of got burned out on plastic. My love of wood kind of took over right about then. Also, this ship came to a standstill when the wood deck I applied started to delaminate from the plastic deck. Too many attempts to lay it down because of mis-alignment errors and, probably, humidity issues in my workshop. I will have to tear it off and redo it when I get around to starting this ship again. I added the Pontos photo etch set with turned barrels and all kinds of other goodies. Enjoy. Here is the Pontos set and a couple of pics of the hull for scale.
  9. Hi guys, You read it right, it is 1:2400. The finished model is roughly 5 inches long. Crazy? Yep that's me. Lets see how it goes! Here I'll just show you the kit. I haven't really gotten started yet. Any votes for my insanity yet? I can't wait to get into it.

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.
