  1. alternative: a flower-pot?? hanging next to your door, with some nice red pelargoniums in it??? Jan
  2. And some were designed with a rediculous among nt of sail. Apparantly they did not trust the steam engine (or it was more economically sailing to the far east than steaming )
  3. The only rigging info I can find is this kind of diagrams: http://www.gahetna.nl/collectie/archief/inventaris/gahetnascans/eadid/4.MST/inventarisnr/797/level/file Victoria was not the only one carrying this kind of rig.No naming, though.... Jan
  4. There are a couple of ships in the dutch achive (like the bali) http://www.gahetna.nl/collectie/archief/inventaris/gahetnascans/eadid/4.MST/inventarisnr/797/level/file they are all referred to as steam-screw ships, sometimes added: schooner rig unfortunatedly, there are no rigging diagrams in the archive, just hull-details Jan
  5. Was rhere some kind of decking on this balcony? The holes look rather large to me. And like the others I am enjoying your metal skills. Jan
  6. Hi Tony, What you indicate in red, is -as far as I understand these drawings - the deck height on the centerline of the ship, not the deckline in the side of the ship. Thus, the difference between the red and blue lines is an indication for the curvature of the deck beams. (But perhaps my interpretation is incorrect..) Jan
  7. I was wondering: is it the way the resin reflects the light, or are the edges slightly less defined than in the plastic parts? Btw that radar is incredible.... just for comparison: can we have a ruler or something next to that radar? Jan
  8. Although there are more 'proofs' that suggest that there used to be such sails. In an other thread I found this picture Found in this thread (page 4) Jan
  9. I don’t know how it is in other countries, but the main sales channel for SB and Schuyt in the Netherlands used to be toy-shops , while HMV or Wilhelmshaven were hobby shops. I guess that has some meaning jan
  10. That is not so strange: swastika's are strictly forbidden in Germany, no matter what you need them for. Looks an interesting plane. Jan
  11. As Ken said: thanks for optivisors. I'll need one following this build Jan
  12. Nope, I checked: @dafi has them in .7 mm which is way more that .009 inch. ( which is around .2 mm) I also checked some PE-manufacturers, but ringbolts that size do not exist, at least, not in the places where I checked. Jan
  13. As usual, Schreiber is a bit basic. I don't think they ever redesign an existing model, so they are a bit lagging in quality. Their newest however, are much better in terms of print quality (eg the Limburger Dom) compared to the old ones (Dom in Worms or Marialaach). A new design principle in architecture seesm to be 'fotorealistic': the building is no longer handcoloured, but foto's are used to represent the surface. That is 'optimal weathering' (although I'm not sure whether or not I always like the result) Jan

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.
