Hi Kevin, thank you so much for sharing these videos - they are incredibly useful. I've just finished installing the capping rails so being able to follow your work for the rest of the build will be excellent. All the best Richard

Hi Red

I have to say that this model from Caldercraft is one of the best kits i have ever purchased and built.i think you will enjoy the build. Should the need arise feel free to ask any questions. Once i can remember i will be happy to assist. The main purpose of making the videos was to help others in future builds. Best regards

Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your kind offer.

I am a slow builder, currently preparing the frames. When I come unstuck I will contact you.

Kind Regards

The liquid clamp i am referring to is CA. Once you hold a piece of wood against another and put some CA glue it will bond in a few seconds.

Hi Kevin,

I watched every one of your videos (some of them several times over!) while I was building the Caldercraft Granado kit in Jan - July 2018, and found them all really helpful.  I should have posted to thank you for them long ago, but now I've started my own build logs and gallery on this site I felt I must drop you a line to do so.  Your comments and explanations saved me from many a potential disaster!!

With best wishes,

Tom.

Hi Tom

i am so glad you found them useful as that was the sole purpose of doing them. When i started out modeling I found so little video content on YouTube that could guide and help me to acquire the skill necessary to build some of the more complex models. There was a lot of written stuff but much of it difficult to understand and follow. That was the motivation to do the videos. Today many years later there are now over 190 short videos that follow my building process on various ships. Your comment is greatly appreciated as recently i was unceremoniously  thrown off a build that i followed,  having been accused of “promoting my videos” , when all i did was respond to a new builder who had made an inquiry, and a request for help. I have long passed any desire to “promote myself” having discovered the wonderful craft of model building. I have found it challenging and stimulating having had a long successful career in business but still found the need to “stress” my brain to take me where i am uncomfortable and where most of the time I am  ill equipped to handle the challenge. In Trinidad and Tobago where i live i have only recently found one modeler that i can discus my challengers with. So i am back to this forum as the only source of feedback. The two people who have been extremely helpful are Greg Herbert and David Antscherl whose support has been nothing short of fantastic. 
best regards

Well, all I can say is that if it hadn't been for your videos I would probably have given up with Granado long before getting to the end of it, and so would never have progressed to do HMS Pegasus and the brig Mercury, or be writing this now! I too find ship modelling a totally absorbing and rewarding challenge in my retirement, and I have learned most of what I know about it from your work.  If you had been charging a fee for a training course I would have considered it money well spent.

Best wishes,

Tom.

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.
