  1. Javier, that's wonderful! This is a masterpiece on the palm of your hand!!!
  2. G.L. , I got all my knowledge of electroforming from the Internet, videos and articles. I added to this my thoughts, ideas and got the technology I needed. You can go the same way.
  3. Bedford, agree with you, in Russian there is a saying - "Devil is not so black as he is painted". If you wish, soldering can be easily mastered. As a flux, I use zinc etched soldering acid. Judging by the photo, your approach to soldering is at a high level.
  4. Thank you, Michael! You are a Master of your craft, and I appreciate your attention to my work. I am very pleased to follow your work. The large scale of the model confronts you with special difficulties, and you successfully overcome them. I have something to learn from you! Each item spent approximately 8-10 hours in the electroplating bath. The slower the process, the better the detail is obtained.
  5. The power source operates in DC mode, so I only regulate the amperage. I set the voltage to maximum and only once, I do not regulate it later.I follow the instructions for the power source, here it is: DC POWER SUPPLY HY1500-HY1800 DC MODE 1. Turn the voltage regulator clockwise until it stops, and current control counterclockwise until it stops. 2. Power on the instrument. 3 Connect the positive and negative outputs of the device to load. 3 Turn the current dial clockwise to set the official value of the output current.
  6. Alexander and Jean thank you for your attention and feedback!
  7. Keith , I will be glad of such attention from you.
  8. Lou I tried to answer your question in a previous post. You need to understand that these formulas are needed to start the real process, in the course of work, you will definitely adjust these indicators as your experience becomes available.
  9. I will try to answer questions as far as the translator and a small stock of my knowledge will allow me. 1) Recipe for cooking 1 l. electrolyte for electroforming: - we part 200 g of copper vitriol in 500 ml of water - we filter the resulting solution - add 134 ml. automotive electrolyte density of 1.28 - bring distilled water to 1 l. and mix well 2) Deposition Current: 15 mA * S (part coverage area) 3) To calculate the time of deposition of copper on small areas: t = (840 * m) / I time - in hours, mass - in grams, current - in milliamperes 4) Copper precipitated mass: m = (S * h) * ρ m - mass of copper in grams S - area in cm2 h - thickness in cm ρ = 8.93 g / cm3 - the proportion of copper 5) Any pure copper is used as an anode.
  10. Joachim , I will show the process in pictures, if you have any questions, I will try to answer them. It will be good if the pictures do not mix up after my upload to the forum......
  11. Hello Harald! I really like your attitude to the credibility of the Standard model. The number of drawings you have assembled is amazing! I will be happy to observe your construction.
  12. Since we are talking about shipping company models of the 1900s ... For the time being, I have been looking without success for detailed photos of two models of liners of the type "Empress of Japan" (1895). The first model is stored in Vancouver maritime museum, the second model is in the Canada Science and Technology Museum Ottawa. Perhaps one of our members of the forum will be able to photograph them in detail?
  13. Thank you, Greg. Yes it is. Such models are for me a model of the museum style.
  14. Details along the arrow are also made by electroforming.
  15. Thank you, Chris. This deflector is welded from two halves. Each half is made of copper by electroforming. At Varyag deflectors will be made by the same method of electroforming, but with whole details, without halves.

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.
