Hi Andy


You have done a beautiful build of the SOS.


It is a credit to your skills as a model builder well done.

Hi Andy,


what a impressing ship and a very nice pic... Seems you do not have dogs around? I have four - and so I have to use a dust cover to protect my models. I use some colorless acrylic covers that are made in the correct dimensions. Fort my Half Moon, a quite small model, I have a cover with the dimensons of 60/60/23 cm and it was about 120 Euros...

Hi Andy--I'm late to the party as usual!  Congratulations on your Sovereign of the Seas.  I'm about to tackle the same project and have noticed that everyone seems to follow the instructions and delays planking the bottom part of the hull until a lot of the deck work is finished.  In your build log you raised the question of whether there was a reason for that.  Having done the build, was there a reason?  I have a strong preference to do all the planking first and then work on the decks.  The sanding and moving of the ship during planking makes me not want to do a lot of delicate work first.  Would love your thoughts.  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.
