Oh, I like these very much!
Fantastic! I felt like I could just reach in and pick up a full sized tool.

Okay Earl where are you hiding McGuillacutty and all the little people that have done this work. There very good would like to employ for 1 week have some wee itty bitty work I need done.
Terrific work. A great follow up would be a narrative to explain how you did it. Congratulations on a superior job.

Hard to list all the ways I made these things. Most of the tools are made from brass with lots of filing and often bits of wood glued on. The 5-gallon paint bucket is a piece of plastic rod turned on the lathe and painted white. The smaller cans are brass rod. Labels for the cans were found on the internet, sized appropriately, and glued on. Paint brush is an ordinary, cheap brush with a wood handle glued on. I enjoy doing this kind of stuff and over the past few years have gotten into putting these sorts of details on my models. First attempt at a diorama though.

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.
