  1. the trouble is that i had a "few" photos (only this year something as 400 ... from 12 regatas ) here is the link to my space on photobucklet which I often use for posting images on nautical forum. Most of folders are from sailing. http://s364.photobucket.com/user/GRINGO_ZD/library/?sort=9&page=1
  2. you knew all (about wifes ) For the 1:1 , fortunately I'm not a owner (so I only have to sail not to take care ) but I have two friends with interesting models first is First 30 and when I am not on it I go with one Ufo 22 I don't want to spam your post so only few picks as I have a plenty of picks on my FB profile
  3. Thk Patrick In fact last half year or something more I was intensively engaged with a bit greater scale (1:1) and non-static recent models Simply I had the fortune and the possibility to go on many sailing regattas, so in few weekends that I wasn't on deck was very politically correct to remember that I had also the best wife on the world (doesn't someone have OR could says that !? ) so the models are on stand by.
  4. Nothing new but as I made this photos for another purpose (macro theme on one forum) and as this is a interesting indication of scale I decided to put it here.
  5. Great solution that was behind all but we didn't seen it :im Not Worthy: And that give me a perfect idea for small scale (we both have a same feeling for soldering ), I will do it in styrene as in my scales it is to small even for plywood I use - 0,4mm aero , great :im Not Worthy: for idea and realization !!!
  6. For conversion in that dimension and pix weight I suppose that you used the compression to aprox 20-25% maybe if You try resizing to 1024 pix larger side (as the most of forums use that or smaller resolution) you can obtain the same pix weight or smaller with smaller compression (approx 50%) and with better quality
  7. The ropes are fantastic also because are slightly different so looks realistic Fantastic work overall
  8. Nice work! The mast is very nice, You can fill it, as it will be painted it will be OK. About using the drill and sanding, one precaution, maybe You knew it yet, don't wrap the paper completely around the wood because the friction will be to high and something will be broken... Use the paper only bent for a half profile.
  9. Thk Patrick External ladders are a bit outdimensioned, I used the 0,6 mm plywood but seems to bee too big. Probably I'll pass darker tone on it to made slimmer
  10. Hi, it was printed by Shapeways with material Frosted Ultra Detail because this was the test print, probably the friends will order with Frosted Extreme Detail which have better resolution. anyway the limit is 0,1 mm as the smallest dimension.
  11. The first question is the dimension of the photos which you wont to publicate. On the internet and the forums I think that is enough to resize pictures on 1024 pix or max 1400pix for the bigger side of the photo. Take attention that many forums have the resizing of images to 800 pix because bigger pictures made problematic viewing and You have to scroll horizontally. But if You use 1024 *768 pix which is a pretty good resolution that is max about 760 kB, but often smaller, you can use the compression of 20% (the picture remains at 80%) and the picture remains nice and light. Because the problems of high weight pictures are not only the space your disk but also on the server and the speed of opening of threads with bigger pictures.
  12. same painting (very roughly) just to emphasize the volumes
  13. Today the captain decided to visit the yard so it was necessary to mount the ladders

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.
