  1. Hi Ed, I could have hit the like-button, but I wanted tot say that I enjoyed all your posts (even the ones were you said you were only showing repetitive work ). The final result is absolutely fabulous. And although the artwork is perhaps a bit amateurish, the point of view of the picture really shows the impressive height of the ship. Turn it into a black-white pic, and photoshop New York harbor in the background, and nobody can tell this is a model. Jan
  2. But the smallest part so far were near invisible. half of that size means: invisible to the human eye Jan
  3. Hi Marcus, Bending isn’t the bedt way to go: some need serious sideway curves, and the width isn’t constant over the length. Making templates, and fabricating planks from a sheet is perhaps the easier way to go. Jan
  4. Nice ship, not the easiest hull to plank. (Never tried one myself, but saw lot of strugling ) Emke's drawings show enough detail to keep you busy for some time . Jan
  5. Talent? Outside and painted you get an idea of the size of the ship. Jan
  6. Looks good. How picky are you in the details of the hulls molding? In case you are, the indentation of the hull around the forward guns need a very small amount of filler: in the original it is rounded slightly below the upper plating belt, in the model it cuts into it.... Jan
  7. The pics are easy: www.bundesarchiv.de the rest is wizardry, as far as I'm concerned ... Jan
  8. Give or take another ten years or so Jan
  9. Btw, oth owner, and (some of) the authors are MSW-members, and active on the forum.
  10. Hi Dave, Search for Seawatch on the forum, and you'll discover that you are not the first with this question. Seawatch is a one-man company. Not a large amazon-like firm. Apart from the usual customs-damage, postman Pat mislaying parcels, I don't think orders at seawatch have any issues reported on MSW. 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 “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.
