  1. Next steps was to make the guns At first I changed the brass into bronze by painting it with acrylic (old gold mixed with black) And than the wooden parts. Milling the side panels of the gun carriadges. Side panels and other parts after cutting by band saw and sanding First attempt Making the axis and the weels The first finished gun A board At At last for today I had to modell 4 swivel guns for the stern. There were 4 guns from an older project. So it was easy to me to modify they into swivels. Cheerio! Hartmut
  2. Next job on the Golden Hind was to make the channels. I have made it from 2,5 x 2,5 mm bras, The gun port lids For this parts I had to make a lot of parts The parts of the hinges are from bras, burnished with Nerofor from Ballistol, a german Company Cheers! Hartmut

  9. Hey, Omega! Me and my family are very well. But the summer this year had been so warm that I was more interested in swimming, barbecue with friends and family as to sit in my dockyard. And there had been two wonderful journeys with my admiral to the Lofoten (north Norway) and to Denmark. Best regards Angarfather
  10. Aye, Omega 1234 very amazing pics from your model. When I was an boy I dreamed of sailing on such ships. Best regards Angarfather
  11. After finishing the out side planking I have made the planking of the main deck. The question was how wide the planks must be. The only binding information I found in the report of the wreck of the Mary Rose. Here is the plank width 50cm. This corresponds to 15mm in scale 1:33. After this I planked the inside of the main deck and cut in the gun ports. Next job was to make the fore castle. There were quite a few parts to do. There are deck beams, mast tracks, anchor and foremast bitt and another hatch. An other question was how to paint the walls inside. Because I didn't find a research result I did paint teh walls with English Red. But see yourself here are a few pics. Cheers!!! Hartmut
  12. Hello guys! The summer 2018 was to warm to stay in the dockyard for modeling. It was a good time for barbecue, swimming and lazing around with old friends sitting in the garden enjoying an ice-cold beer. And last but not least there were to wunderfull journeys together with my admiral to the Lofoten islands in Norway and the Møn Island in Danmark. In the last two weeks the planking was done. Here are some pics of the Golden Hind today. Best regards Angarfather
  13. Aye, Mates! Many thanks for your kind words and all the likes. The last weeks was not so much time for modelling the Golden Hind. There had been many interesting job. Thats ok. Here are some pics from the last days. To finsh the wales in the bow I first did mount the upper and the lower wale. After this I use spacer blocks to mount the bow part of the wale in the middle The last wale piece Next step was planking the space between the two lower wales and the stern. Cheers! Hartmut
  14. Yes, Canute is right. To say it with the words of an old song: Long we tost on the roaring main, now she's save ashore, Jack... Cheers Hartmut

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.
