Kudos and congrats Rob; stunning model and very nicely displayed.  You have done a great job on her; now I need to get off my butt and get more done on the Victoria.

 

cheers

Excellent job! Is that a piece of driftwood I see at the base? Nice touch.

 

Nic...no that is a piece of the maple I cut down 5 years ago and I had it milled...that is a piece I had especially cut to use as the base for the GR.  Quite a unique mounting, how it cantilevers.  Both the finished base and the knotted extension are from that maple tree I cut down.

Thanks for the fine comments.

Very artistic. I love natural wood like that, and the cantilever is visually interesting. Nice walk-around video, too.

I love it too Nic....Like is my manner...I always strive for interesting mounting ideas for my models.

congratz Rob.......your finished :)   you've put so much into her.......the detail is through the roof.  I've built the Cutty twice now....but I never in my wildest dreams,  could detail one out like you've done.  I agree....it's quite a feat to do what you did here.   if you can do the same with the Glory of the Seas,  it will be an enormous accomplishment!  this log is first choice for anyone to follow! :)

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.
