Princess Royal 1842 by Warnerade - Authentic Models 1988 - BOTTLE

Recommended Posts

Well my San Francisco by Artesania Latina build is coming to an end, just working on the stand and display case now I decided to start planning for my next build. 
 

My first ship was the Golden Yacht bottle kit by Amati, I will say I enjoy the larger models more but about a year ago I came across this kit on eBay and purchased it. From what I can tell the kit itself was produced and sold in 1988 and stopped selling shortly after that. I have tried to research the kit and there is not much on out there on it.
 

I was a bit skeptical purchasing something so old on eBay as the box was damaged in the picture, but from what I could tell it had never been opened. And when it arrived, it was clear that it wasn’t. All of the parts inside the box were still packed away and appeared to be in pristine condition. 
 

I have not started it yet, but I will soon.

Today was my first day off of work for Christmas vacation so I got a little progress done on the jig that holds the ship while building it. While building the Amati it didn’t require anything like this, I’m intrigued to see how all of these holes will be utilized.

 

next the fore and aft cabins will be fitted and glued. The kit comes with very crudely shaped wood so it will require a little filler and quite a bit of sanding

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.
