    Very nice. This is a kit or made all from scratch? Cristian
  2. Happy birthday! Cristi

  3. And after tests i made a "linette" for my Unimat lathe. I also included picture from the software, and the work time on 3d printer, and the results If anyone is interested, just ask Regard Cristian
  4. About the dimentions of what i made. You can think that the nozzle diameter is 0.4 mm and this is let's say how small is the line. I can meke smaller thinks, but the gun i wanted to be so big, to have one to work with my granddaughter, to make a combat station like Mantua-740 ( as we want to make together in futrure) and this made from 2d printer will be a test. I made some other parts, to test, for the other two grandchildren. Ex the yellow ring is 2.8 cm high. The toys are 3cm the head, and the Barbie head is 2.5 cm high. So there are a lot of good accuracy if you make the model ok in the software. IAs i said, this as just some tests, and for larger parts... Cristi
  5. For Mr Pucko, the printer is Anet A6, and for Y.T. the lenght of the gun (black part) is 12 cm Cristi
  6. the first "gun" and carriage, made from different PLA color. The model is made from "scratch" using some model 3d software The most important test is to add some "heraldic signs" on the gun The ready gun, with "heraldic sign" will be soon ready to show. Cristi
  7. First of all, many thanks for your interest on my work. Second, the "starting kit" here is a n easy one, around 220 USD , i can answer just on personal message, not to be considered an "advertiser" for the supplier. I saw that every one can start to build from "scratch", buing just some special parts. About the programs, there are a lot to use, and build STL or OBJ models. Ex FreeCad... 3dMax... and so on..., depand on the level of experience. Also the are a lot of free prograrams and objects to download. Regards and if i can give some help, just ask Cristi
  8. The first test was a box, that is one of the 5-6 stl given for tests.
  9. A quickly tour in pictures of how was made, in about 8 hours (with test and fist tuning. All parts were covered with gray protection, and i have to take away, it was a lot of time used for this "job". Also you have to take care to all the arrangements, and the 90deg, and paralel position of the parts. And in final i had "Printer ready"
  10. As it was the retired period from a 40 years period of tv, graphics, and 3d projects, i said it is time to test a second tool. The first was a laser and CNC tool. Now i bought a 3d printer to make from scratch, and i will show some tests. This are some of the first tests, working for the ship hobby. I also mede some "toys" for my granddaughter, just to see how to work. It seams it is a good tool, and to test parts for ships is excellent. I will show how i build, pictures and explanations soon Cristi
  11. Nice to share the video. I was there in 82 but is still a nice review for me Cristi
  12. Hi Jean-Philippe. I think i will make the whole mast, as i made for the other two cross sections. I wii make the small (25x25x15 cm) battle station, without mast
  13. work to some deck parts, and a lot of problems with gueing bras parts on wood

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.
