    Hello from Holland

    Welcome! Lots of Dutch people here.
  2. So beautifull. Thank you for your instructions for how to make these beautifull blocks!
  3. This primer is a spraycan paint from Motip. After this I will use an airbrush with compressor and Vallejo-paint to finish in the right colours. Cheers
  4. New progress on the herringlugger. I started to finish the outside of the hull with thousands of 'fake' rivets. For these rivets I used some glue or paint for clothes. I also gave the hull a solid layer of primer to seal the rivets. In reality the ship would have more, much more rivets but I keep it this way. Iam afraid more rivets will do more harm then good. Now I have the idea off a riveted hull without turning it into a hedgehog or something. I am also starting to sealize that this ship take much more time than the smaller models that i built earlier. It seems like evything takes twice as much time. But fortunately the challenge remains great and I enjoy the building of the model and the thinking out of everything. Thanks for watching, commenting and hitting the like button. (Updates will take a bit longer in the future. After working as a volunteer now since January with elderly people with dementia, I got a job as a student nurse at a big healthcare organization. This after more than six years of being not capable of working because of my bad health. The training will start in february. I thank my wife, my friends and God (and offcoarse the elderly people for stealing my heart😍) for these opportunities after so long being sick)
  5. beautifull work. I like the way you made the figure
  6. Some of the pictures (or maybe all of them) I could look at for hours. Watching the beautifull sculpted golden ornaments I'm wondering... Are your hands also made of gold? Your feathered assistant? Is that a good combo? I once had a feathered assistant and she "LOVED" paper and card! She was like a paper shredder and ripped every piece of paper in tiny pieces. Hope your assistent is better trained☺️ kind regards, Kees
  7. Thank you for this beautifull building report of this very interesting merchant ship. Also interesting are your unconventional ways of building. I like it how you find a way to build everything. Keep up the good work! Kind regard, Kees

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
