Can you please restrict posts to one photo 

Yes, thank you Kevin for the reminder. Folks, please remember the purpose of this thread -- it is a snapshot of current activity on the forum. The idea is that readers whose interest has been piqued by your teaser here will be directed to your build log, and that is where additional photos and commentary should be posted

 

Thanks!

My other loose end tidied up - My 1/36 RC brig HMS Harrier is finished, fully rigged and sailing effectively. Follow the build log link in my signature for more pics and a link to a vid of her in action.

Update on Santisima... cross-section; Hull exterior fittings, interiors, upper deck details all done. Few more needed bits, but now time for masts and yards. As always thanks so much for the likes.1441018260_IMG_0532copy.thumb.jpg.24c14ccd86ee3f20975d11ed79630fbf.jpg2010061135_IMG_0548copy.thumb.jpg.aa5311960575b02f39969aafbb33ea99.jpg

Progress has been slow due to research and testing on this build.  But, here's where I am currently and hopefully things will start picking up speed.  And yes, there is a lot of sanding and shaping needed at this point.

Finally! Four stacks :)001.thumb.jpg.37984f824abb9ce30699d68948fa4cc8.jpg

They really gave me a hard time. The photoetch for them was a bit too much.

But then again: I set up WAY too high goals for me with this build.

Having built my last model in prehistoric times (35 years ago, no photoetch, no

aftermarket at all, only Humbrol enamels, only glue in a tube etc.) I should have

understood that this was WAY to much for my skillset.

   Anyway...moving on ;)

A quick reminder to all that comments on the models seen here should be posted in the member's build log. Comments posted here will be removed.

 

Thanks!

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.
