Hello from Oregon

Recommended Posts

Hello,

      I am newly interested in building ships. I have mostly built 1/35 military kits, including resin and photo-etch. Also some mecha kits. Until recently I was not that interested in ship building. Then my brother died and I inherited his collection. He had a lot of ship kits in his collection and I decided to try and build at least one. I read the article on choosing your first kit and some of it I had already thought of. I don't think I have a lot of patience for doing a lot of rigging, so all those are out.  I have narrowed my choices of first kit to the Mantua Models Caeser or the Amati Egyptian Ship. Both look fairly simple to me. I would be interested in hearing other peoples opinion on them. I think though, for my first foray into wood kits I am going to build the Mantua Models Norman Catapult to get some experience working with wood. 

 

Thanks for reading,

Chris

Welcome!

 

I am sorry to hear about your brother.  You have my condolences.

 

I have not built either kit, although both look like nice kits.

 

 I also enjoy 1/35 armor.  I just bought a BT-7 by Zvezda.

Hi Chris,

Welcome to MSW from southern Oregon.  I''m sorry to hear of your loss.  

 

I check our index and there's no logs for either of those.  Which ever you decide, feel free to start a build log.  The ships would go in the Build Logs for Kits area and the catapult would go into Non-ship Models area in Shore Leave.

Deep in the kit logs there's a kit bash of an Amati Egyptian ship by Nikiforos, I don't know wether it's the one you're thinking of building though.

 Egyptian "Byblos-Ship" trader by Nikiforos - Amati - 1/50th - bash

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.
