  1. I can really recommend the book. Parts of the book have been published separately: Enzyklopädie des historischen Schiffsmodellbaus / Teil ....... von Barbara zu Wertheim und Wolfram zu Mondfeld | However, the "Enzyklopädie" does not provide much more information than the whole book. Clark
  2. Hi Olapa 67, there are some excellent drawings explaining the rigging of guns in Historische Schiffsmodelle: Das Handbuch für Modellbauer Barbara zu Wertheim und Wolfram zu Mondfeld Do you have access to the book? Clark
  3. Hi Olapa67 and all the others, I would be interested if anyone has problems with changing wood length due to changing humidity. My first model (Soleil royal, Mantua) was finished 1998 and was moved to various places in the meantime. I could not detect any damages. Regarding the filler blocks: thanks for initating the discussion. Clark
  4. Hi olapa67 My experience: depend on the model. Regarding your model: I would recommend to fill also the final front gap in the bow and to fill at least the three gaps in the stern. I have no experience with foam, but balsa wood can definitely not be recommended. Clark
  5. - Build 2011-2016 - Did not like the copper plates, painted the hull white

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.
