    Ship model terms in German. Where to find?

    Thomas Thanks so much for the tip! Found this dictionary. I will watch it now Eugene
  4. Dear colleagues, Tell me where can I find ship-modeling terms in German (for boat hulls) ? This is necessary for the correct translation of instructions. I would be very grateful for help
  5. in addition to my post Here is the approved coloring of the ship by the Russian emperor Alexander the First in 1824. This is an official document. I think the color of the board from the inside was on the brig Mercury This color looks like
  6. My regards! Brig Mercury (1820) had a specific color, as painted russian ships in the 20-30s of the 19th century We have a real image of the brig Mercury, which was painted by the navigator (sailing master) Prokofiev. He was on board during the battle with the Turkish ships. He is an eyewitness. This drawing is kept in The Central Naval Museum ( St. Petersburg, Russia) I note that under the gun ports was a narrow white stripe. The presence of this narrow strip is confirmed by other archival documents P.S. All other images of the brig are fake. None of the other artists (including Aivazovsky) have seen the brig in reality.

    planning next build

    My respect, colleagues! The translations for our kits were done by the translation company. If you happen to have any suggestions for improving them - you are very welcome. Eugene MASTER KORABEL
  8. Good afternoon, dear colleagues! I want to bring to your attention YouTube videos for assembling one of woodenkit by Master Korabel - Cannon Jolle 1801 1/72 scale art.MK0202 The videos were made by Alexey Vikulaev The video has subtitles and in YouTube you can choose a translation into any language. Pleasant and useful viewing, Eugene Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5
  9. Bob, Model Expo didn`t order this kit. Maybe you should make them pre-order. But GK-Modelbau will have the yawl in store. They ordered ten kits of the yawl yesterday. So I advise you to hurry up, if you need this kit now or or from the next batch. Regards, Eugene
  10. Jim, I told about kit "Tender AVOS" Dave, maybe in 1.5 months Eugene
  11. Of course! Boxes of kits that we will officially supply to foreign countries will have nameplate in English, as well as instructions in English. Therefore, it is worth buying the only kit from our official partners as in Europe http://www.gk-modellbau-shop.de/epages/61220080.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/61220080/Categories/Fremdherstellern/Master_Korabel in USA https://modelexpo-online.com/Master-Korabel_c_164.html My regards, Eugene
  12. In regard to whale boats , how about the "Beetle" boats like the Charles W. Morgan (CWM) sailed with . This could be a very lucrative sell for you as there are a lot of Model Shipways CWM out there . I for one would gladly walk away from bread and butter construction (with the kit) for a more realistic looking beetle boat . Should you decide to do 1/64th scale Beetle boats please put me down for 8 . I know the CWM only carried seven . My thinking is how cool would it be to have an 8th sitting to the side with the sail up ?

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.
