Hello everyone, I am sorry for the lack of movement with my build, that stupid hand condition is playing me up again, and it kind of throws me of course affecting my mojo,  I am still here as I love replying to all my friends and following what everyone is doing.

Keep up your great work folks  I will get on with my build shortly.:dancetl6:

hope it recovers soon OC, i love what you are doing with your build

 

Thank you so much Kevin,   its just an annoying condition that causes my hand to lock up with a couple of frozen fingers.

I  have been keeping myself busy with helping to promote a friend with his new film script for a  fab new film about Nelson and Trafalger,  its going to be bigger than Master and Commander  - A deffinate must see film when its made.

I've asked him to join up on here and have a look at a few of the Vic builds  and also to have a look at my build,   I was wondering if the mods would let me pt something up about the film.

Perhaps the shore leave section is the best place to start

Good evening  folks,   I have decided  my next move with my build will be to increase the width of the black band that was just covering the wale,  I will measure an equal gap from the top feature edging downwards to above the top of the wale and mark a line, I will then mask this and fill in with the same black as the wale.

Here is a picture of similar frigate to show how I want to extend the black band.

have you received much feedback wrt the film

Hiya mate, there has been a bit of interest on here,  its home so to speak is on twitter where I am trying to approach as many people as possible, who may be interested or relavent to the films creation,   the script is currently being looked over by a well known film producer, and we are awaiting his feedback and direction with the film.

Its a facinating journey to be on I have been invited to be an extra on the film.

I decided today  (well the admiral did)  to tidy out a cupboard  so I could better home my boat bits, very good job was done so it was  double rum and biscuits,    after doing this it inspired me to work out my next progress with the build.

It occured to me that the hatchway with steps (still needed steps)  anyway  its right next to where the capstan will be located (and as I dont want any accident claims from sailors falling down the hatch whilst doing capstan duties)    I have decided to lay a few planks fitted flush with the hatch frame,   have to make the ship as safe as possible the crew will have enough to contend with during battle.

 

OC.

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.
