HMS Sophie from Cruizer kit by jwvolz (Joe V.) - FINISHED - Caldercraft - 1:64 - kitbash

Recommended Posts

Sophie is complete, and has been for a while but just getting around to getting pictures up. I've been through a rough patch health wise, with four hospitalizations and two surgeries over the last few months. Hopefully on the road to full recovery at this point. 


Anyway...hope you enjoy the final photos, it was quite an enjoyable build, and with a few changes I highly recommend the kit.

Just caught up on this Joe. That's a fine finish to the build and a great Cruizer. Well done. I hope the health is improving.

With a little care, the Latham kit can be built into a pretty spectacular model.

Thanks guys.


So far Latham looks good fiddling around with things Chris. The fittings package looks decent and the Ronnberg plans (other than the rigging sheet) look good. I picked up Chapelle's "American Fishing Schooners" book and can tell it will be a nice resource. 


Build log to follow once I get something concrete going. Should be a nice change form the warships!

I began the Latham build a few weeks ago, and have posted a Build Log.  Link to that in my signature for those interested.

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.
