beautiful impression !!
Thank You, Nils. I like creating my dioramas as much as building my ship models. I started turning to making dioramas for my ship models over the last two years when I also took up learning how to make realistic-looking sails and all the associated rigging that accompanies them. The "next step" was to investigate how to place my models (with sails) into realistic settings; I'm now "hooked" on taking this approach for future models I plan to build. I should point out that I have a professional photography and graphic design background and am, by definition, extremely visually-oriented.
Again, Thank You for your nice comment.
This picture shows the completed model at my regular model club meeting; note that it wasn't necessary to plank the hull all the way to the keel.

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.
