I'm Ekis, 53, from France (more exactly a few kilometers from Versailles). I work in advertising.

I read this forum for many weeks now, and I often find very good information about our hobby.
I decided today to take the plunge and join you as a member.
Excuse me in advance for my English: I read it much better than I write it! image.gif.f26e12526162df5d67f3ba4dd8a9f0d2.gif
I am a fan of wood kits, especially the sailing navy 18th, but also other things if the kit is original. My current project is HMS Victory. Not that of Nelson, but the previous ship designed in 1737, wrecked in 1744.
I start from an existing kit of the Victory 1803 (AL) version, and I adapt so that it looks like the one of 1737. I respect all the rules of hulls and rigs of the 18th, but I wish a boat according to my desires also for colors and some amenities.
The thread is here: HMS Victory 1737 by ekis

Thank you for your welcome ! 😉

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.
