you've made some really great progress Kevin :)   she's a stunning vessel to be sure!  I think that by the time you can truly hang the completed sign on her,  someone will be following you with hankies........the feeling of her being finished might be a bit overwhelming.  I remember how I felt when I finished my first project........now,  after several.........eh,  not so much ;)    your labor of love really shows....she's a sweet look'in vessel!

I'm a game nut too.......mostly sword and bow.....  Divine divinity,  diablo,  and Gothic are three of my favorites.   I tried the on line games,  but I can't see buying the game and then having to pay to play on line with it.   there are a few simulator games out there....I'm sure that there are naval sims out there.

Amazing. I used to date a girl in Karlsruhe, Germany who worked on the team that made that game. She was actually the one who designed the images on the cover of the game. Small world.

i am for now calling the build FINISHED

 

i needs a to build the stand in the form of number 2 dock in Portsmouth, for which i am collecting reference material, as a result of doing this i am going to delay putting any more rope coils on incase any lines are damaged during the transfer, when done i will do the final reveal

Congratulations Kevin!  It's been a pleasure to have been alongside you as you've worked on this wonderful build.  I feel like I've gone through several home renovations with you too!  Just today I was looking for something quite specific on the build and browsed through your entire log again looking for it.  Didn't get any work done on my Victory, but enjoyed a lovely couple of hours looking at yours!

Congrats on an awesome build Kevin. You should consider it an accomplishment sir and you are worthy of the praise you have been receiving for her. Now you can "sit back" and watch the rest of us Victorites bash on with our builds :)

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.
