Great work. That is a big ship - when you are working in the open I bet your neighbours are fascinated by it. :)

Hi, Giovanni!

I see, "gigantesco" (translation from italian: "very very big") is not only your name ;), but the whole model!!! You have been embarking in a very challenging model size and it will entail lots of interesting details. I like it a lot.

Ciao Giovanni,scusa il disturbo i disegni che stai usando per la costruzione del modello sono un ingrandimento di quelli del libro, oppure si trovano venduti anche separatamente,mi potresti dare qualche. Informazione.Grazie

Hello John, excuse the trouble that you are using the drawings for the construction of the model are a magnification of those in the book, or are also sold separately, you could give me some. Informazione.Grazie

Albert, sorry if I answer late but it was a long time since I opened my post. It designs I got them zooming with your scanner to 3 times the original drawings of the book by mckay about getting a scale 1:66. However, the same remuneration mckay send the designs already in scale 1:48. The address and the references are to the book.

C'era un post su un incidente hard disk e in [post hanno chiesto che lasciamo che la gente sappia se vediamo il loro log di compilazione è stata colpita.

Quindi, solo farti sapere che il tuo log di compilazione è stato influenzato e di aver perso alcune immagini  :(

mi piace il tuo lavoro in modo spero che tu possa ricaricare quelle immagini mancanti.

Comincio a inviare le foto che sono state perse.

Hi gigantesco,


This was the first day I've looked at your build log, but had the opportunity to read all of it.  What an ambitious project you've undertaken.  Progress on your Victory model is looking good.  I really liked your building board and the tiered jig you devised to hold the frames in place.  Very nice!

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.
