  1. Hello, After finishing my Corel Vasa build in January 2017. I took the year off to help my wife with projects for the wedding of our daughter. (Of course, I did take the time to build a model of a Concord Stagecoach on the side!!) Back in January of this year, I purchased a Corel kit of the Real De France from the very nice people at Ages of Sail, with the intention of starting it right away. However, due to frozen pipes at my elderly parents home, I have spent the last few months with contractors, getting their house put back together. So now I am finally to get back into my hobby room! Here are some photos from the opening of the kit A couple of things I noticed about the kit. On the box cover, it says that the scale is 1:24, but in the instruction notes, it references the correct scale 1:60. The material in the kit seems to be of good quality. There is some plywood pieces included, so I might change these pieces out with some other wood for areas of the model that won't be painted. There are many pages of nicely detailed plans, which should make the build easier. The translations into English of the instruction booklet is not easy for me to follow, but re-reading it a few times brings things into focus! I don't know much about the Real De France, so I can't comment on how accurate the Corel plans are. If anybody can steer me to some other references or publications about the real ship, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Frank
  2. I am going to join the club of modelers constructing or having constructed the ship. Frankly speaking, their construction and kit reports (gimo, Bender, fmodair, schiffebastler) urged me to order the kit. Mainly the very sophisticated report of Frank (fmodair) increased my wish to build the ship. I do not have the skills of the others mentioned. Thus this blog is mainly to those who rely on the material provided by Corel. Content of the kit is well described in construction reports of the club members. Most of the material seems to be of good quality but I am already wondering how to amend the plywood pieces. As mentioned I will probably manly rely on the material provided by Corel. However I like to see the wood structure of the models implying that I will use color paint very rarely. We will see. It seems to me that although Corel put some efforts in the written instruction manual, there is still enough space for improving. False keel is a triple one and made of six pieces which have to be glued overlapping to produce a keel three layers thick. To keep the keel straight I fixed and clipped the parts of the keel flatly on a shell with a metal rail below the keel pieces. Since the lower line of the keel is deflecting, small wood wedges were put under the bow and stern side of the keel to get the distance from the metal rail (arrow). The get the three overlaying pieces in the correct position, small wood stripes 4x4 mm were put into the spaces for the frames/bulkheads. After gluing the keel, frames were dry (!) fitted by filing the slots of the keel and filing the slots of the frames. Bottom side and deck side of the keel was treated with wood filler and sanded. Frames, false deck, the pieces of the true keel and other supports were dry fitted. Some minor sanding had to be done for this. Next step will be tapering the keel and adusting the frames.
  3. Greetings, Up for sale is one SM25 Reale de France kit. A few years ago, I was in the Musee de La Marine in Paris, and I HAD to get this kit. Over the last few years I've taken it out a dozen times, had a close look, and put it back for another day. Now it has to go. The subject is wonderful and the scale of the kit is excellent. The instructions are the usual Corel instructions and the plan sheets are really nice, as with all Corel kits. I've built a couple of Corel kits and I do find them quite acceptable. However, there are many other kits out there I would prefer building. Any reasonable offer will be accepted but please remember that shipping from Montreal is about $60 USD across the USA and $40 CDN, or so, across Canada. If you are overseas, please let me know and I'll work out the shipping cost for you. Beyond the actual cost of shipping, pretty well any reasonable offer will be accepted. As I said, it has to go. Thanks for looking, Rick
  4. I started this about 3 months ago after finishing my Victory of 1765, while not up to par with some of the wooden builds I've seen it looks okay Here's a current picture and the link to my album. Michael D https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipOILn2VCXaodxNscquqLtI5G8q6YXOkR21cmpvKZRI43H-OsgHUANk9p472cH-GsQ?key=OWszVld0a0M4LUZKZnNvTWZ1eC1aSXJDY2FiOF9R
  5. This is what it will look like. It seems I don't have the pictures from when I started working on Reale de France stored on this computer, only the last few after I finished her. I'll have to transfer the pictures to the computer I am using now. And here's to starting fresh and new
  6. Hello everybody, eventually I have found almost all pictures of my lost log . Gimo

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.
