HMS Revenge by Denis R - Victory Models (Amati) - Scale 1:64

I like the wales you are putting on.

My opinion - The colouring depends on whether you will paint the Hull or Varnish it.

If you paint it - then I would have dark contrasting colour

If you Varnish the Hull then I would make it half strength darker for a "not so subtle" look


- My Vote goes with the Wood - but it is your call


Well done - looking forward to your progress & more pics

Hello Visi

Thank you also.

If I paint the hull then I will paint the wales black.

If I varnish the hull then I will varnish the wales.

I will carry on using my stock wood.

Hi All


Sorry I have not posted lately but I have been painting the inside of the house ready to put it on the market for sale.

I have had little time to do any work on the Revenge.


But I have done some work ha-ha.


Cut the bulkheads out.

I decided to plank them (not what the book says to do) with 3mm x 0.50mm strips.

Applied 3 coats of sanding sealer with a rub down with a 1300 grit pad inbetween coats of sealer.

After this has dried I sanded it down again with 3000 grit pad then coated the top part with 4 coats of white paint.


Above the windows I was not that bothered with it as I have to put the paper decorations on that part, also below the windows.


I have just gave the bottom of the bulkheads a coat of satin varnish (still wet when I took the photos).

Hi fellow model builders


You may be wondering why I have not updated my logs.


Well shortly after moving into a new house I was taken ill, well ill is not the correct word to use.

I should say my health went down hill very fast.


I was rushed to hospital and had a catheter inserted, now find it hard to walk and lift things.


To keep this short my liver and kidneys are in a very bad way.

The hospital is waiting to see if my kidneys improve before they do an operation.

At this stage it looks like they will not do the operation.


What happens next, well I don't know.


Life goes on.

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.
