  1. What is the connection between this topic and model ship building? None I suppose.
  2. Hi Flip, you made a comment on my O-1 buildlog in 2014, indicaties you live in Vlissingen and might be able to fine Some images of het "dokje van Perry". 

     

    Ive built a stand and bought a transport case for the O-1, and now I'm interested in mounting a 40x70cm photo behind the model of the dockyard. Ideally it would be an early 1900s foto - I've seen many on internet but no high-resolution ones. 

     

    If if you happen to come across something like this or know where I could find it let me know!  Appreciate it!

      Hello Freek,

       

      I've been looking around on the web as well, but probably found the same pics as you did.

      In any way no high resolution ones.

      Succes on your search.

       

      Greetings, Flip.

  3. More interesting prices on voelkner.de and direct ordering and delivery.
  4. I've bougth and used one. It's scrap. You'd better save your money for something else.
  5. Hi Freek, I'm rather new to this forum and not quite operating yet. This is my first post. The picture above of the (mini) dockyard triggered me. I know this one in Vlissingen/Flushing in The Netherland; my place of birth. About 40 years ago it was of no use anymore (financially) and it was dumped full of sand and in this way disappeared underground. Recently it was restored and repaired to fully operational, including the praticularly formed dockdoor. If you are interested, I can search for some information and pictures about this restoration-project and itss results. If so, just PM me. Greets, Flip (or Phil (= more international)).

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
