  1. the copper tape is this 8 mm : https://www.ebay.it/itm/Larghezza-8mm-20m-lungo-DIY-doppio-adesivo-conduttivo-lati-Nastro-lamina-rame/361963980654?hash=item5446bc076e:g:a~MAAOSwPPpaP~I3
  2. I used this product purchased on e-bay: Green / White (Tiffany Green) Patina Solution, Copper, Brass https://www.ebay.it/itm/Green-White-Tiffany-Green-Patina-Solution-Copper-Brass-etc-15-30-45ml-/262953186904 I did some pieces of copper before testing. You have to do different applications with the brush and when it is still wet, clean the surface with a damp cloth. The liquid is a bit irritating, you must use a mask and use it in an airy environment.

  8. Copper sheet cover: I took the 8 mm adhesive copper, I made a brass shape with guides to cut the shape of the rivets. The rivets are engraved with two toothed wheels of different sizes for the edges and for the central part.

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.
