    I really enjoy viewing your remarkable modeling gems Javier!  You can really incorporate remarkable detail on these small ships of yours.  I also liked your brief description and history of this unusual ship.

Excellent work Javier,

 

I`m wondering why the rudder goes so deep. is there no danger in ripping it off ? , as it would be the first underwater part to touch ground....

Thank you,   Betaqdave and Nils.

Regarding the rudder, in the text with which I present this model, I indicated that "The rudder of the vessel particularly called Hennique´s attention because of its dimensions since with a longitude of 4.55 meters draught a lot more than the boat and had a surface close to a third of the plane of the central dagger boards. When the vessels entered port or found scarce bottoms, the rudder elevated itself using for this one of the two backstays that sustained the mast on each bulk ward rail”

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.
