Next few months? The last months your building speed was higher (or is Zara a super-super detailed kit?)

Your torpedoboot came out very nice!

I'm surprised that Captain Muller allowed that rust bucket to even get close to his magnificent cruiser! :D

 

Great upgrade to a very needy kit. One would never guess it's humble beginnings.

Amazing work and craftsmanship as always Greg.

 

The Italian Cruiser Zara is an excellent and unusual choice too. Don't forget to do some French vessels too... 😉

Jeanne d'Arc exists at the scale of 1/400, by Heller. Not sure if you can find it in 1/350 scale.....

 If there was a decent upgrade set for the pre dreadnoughts I’d be all over it. 

Heller only produced most of their ships at the scale of 1/400, which of course, was done long before 1/350 was adopted as the preferred scale for war ships.

 

Now, HobbyBoss/Trumpeter has these two French Dreadnoughts:

condorcet.jpg.f1e7d25b64c0e59329ac4fd80a8c521a.jpgand Condorcet.

They also have Danton, but just the name of that individual is repulsing (he was instrumental in getting thousands of people be-headed after the Revolution).

 

Another interesting vessel is the Submarine Surcouf, equipped with a massive gun and a plane:

More modern, you have the large Cruiser/Battleship Strasboug and Dunkerque. Not much choice in 1/350, unfortunately.

They look lovely it without a decent PE set they’ll look like bathtub kits to me unfortunately. 

Very true. A kit without PE is like a day without Sunshine.

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.
