Hi Danny,


Thanks for the info, I may use that method for the funnels.  Unfortunately the bent ladder is supposed to be curved.  For some reason the Port and Starboard ladders are different but I messed up the ‘curve’…in hindsight I should have matched the straight ladder but right now going to leave as is.


The 6” turrets are more or less done.


The parts for a rear sliding armoured hatch ready for attaching.



Rear observation cupola.



Front observation cupolas.  These could have been neater.



The turret rings…bizarrely I could only find 5 strips so had to make the 6th from scrap and will paint to match.



Turrets all skinned up.



Finished(ish) turrets.



A few shots shown in place.








I still have the ladders and top hand rails to do but will set them aside for the time being and work on some other bits and pieces.

Hi all,


Thanks for all the likes and to Chris for the nice words.


I thought I would chip away at some of the remaining smaller deck components including a few skylights and companionways.  I had already started prepping for the PE portholes before I remembered to take a photo.




The 0.2mm and soldered handrails, g1, g2 & g3 for skylights No. 80 and 82. These took an inordinate amount of time to complete.




Photo showing the above assembled.




As usual nothing glued in place yet but shown in their locations for effect.

Bow skylight No.80




Stern skylights No.82




Skylights and companionways.




Well that’s all for this break. Probably a couple of months before back again.

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.
