  1. There is nothing below the waterline when it comes to details. There is also no strakes along the bow which are on the real thing. So some marskung and some very thin tape soles that quickly. I need to get some more rattle can spray to finish coverage on the Lower hull, then I can scribe in some panels. I also added some riveted panels to the rudders and above the cannons that run along the edge of the hull.
  2. This is a good photo of the fore funnel (facing the bow), in particular you can see the ship’s bell underneath the spotlight, on the port side you can just make out the flybridge that has been folded down.
  3. They used to be able to hit each other over 12 kilometres just using optics too! At anchor with the nets deployed they would also drag anchor As the tide was turning. They could operate at about 6kts with the nets down but would use a prodigious amount of coal.
  4. I love the Tamiya steel as it just falls off when bent. Luckily the Seydlitz only has 2 rails
  5. Only cut the tops, then paint with Tamiya rattle can fine primer as it sticks really well. Then you just push them off the fret and don’t lose paint.
  6. Well done mate, it is pure agony doing those holes, and the continuous snapping of drill bits
  7. Hull together. It’s quite a big ship, the centre deck piece has a very hard time sitting flush as the side cannons throw off the balance and there are a few gaps which seem unavoidable and will require filling.
  8. As far as I know they were compressed air, and only good for a kilometre or so, thus knife fight range.
  9. The side turrets have to be added before the deck is stuck on, the barrels can be added after
  10. Now, just for @Canute and @cog I now see there is a lot of prep to do. The the rear torpedo tube
  11. You have such a great imagination mate

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.
