VOLVO OCEAN RACE, Open 70 By Pete48 Scale : 1/4" = 1' - 0" Completed

Recommended Posts

Excellent job and as someone already said, the paint job is gorgeous. I've downloaded some plans of the ABN AMRO and will be making her a larger scale. This is still a year or 2 away. I want her large enough to make her R/C.

There are some build logs on Dutch sites that show her sailing in the water.

Hey Patrick , how about a sloop rigged pleasure boat ?

 

Thank you Marc, I would like to see a rc build of a Volvo Boat

 

Best Regards,

Pete

Hi Pete

 

Ok....now that really narrows the choices down to about a million possibilities. Let me see, I'm thinking something magically beautiful designed by Herreshoff again? If so, you would be spoilt for choices!

 

 

Whatever it is, I'm looking forward to following along, that's for sure.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Thank you Patrick, I am pleased with how she turned out

 

Thank you Cap'n'Bob, Originally I was going to free sail her, I am planning on a larger boat for RC, so I decided to just complete her as static

 

Best Regards,

Pete

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.
