  1. Good luck with the build and remember to check a few posts above by seahorse where one of my mistakes in the build has been addressed. Regards, Aydin
  2. According to the manufacturer's specs max keel length is 100cm but there may be a degree of tolerance, though I doubt it will work with keels significantly longer than that. Specs: http://www.hobbyzone.pl/en/boat-building-tools/26-professional-building-slip.html
  3. Hi Per! Having said that, it is already in its display case (see image) :). By the way, I strongly recommend this German shop at http://www.sora-shop.com, which manufactures custom made assemble-it-yourself display cases at a very good price and accuracy. BR; Aydin
  4. FINAL PHOTOS - 21 build days and 49 hours! Here is a bunch of photos from the finished model. Thank you very much for watching and let's see when I will be off to the next building adventure (hopefully soon) Regards, Aydin
  5. TURKISH FLAG It comes as a paper. I used aluminium kitchen foil to give a wrinkled look. You can see it better in the final photos. I think it looks much better than a starched rigid piece of plate
  6. This is a rubber belt which lies on top of the end of the rudder handle. I think it helps control the rudder, or just keeps it in place. The belt is fixed as a loop from its ends using metal braces, then attached with hooks to the hull:
  7. ENGINE, EXHAUST PIPE AND GAS TANK Exhaust pipe is fixed to handrails using a metal plate. Gas tank is in fact a canister hanging on the side (Note the copper wire resembling the gas input pipe from the canister to the engine)
  8. Build days: 20-21 Finished building. 5.5 hours in three days, 49 hours in total. I am glad to announce that my Bosphorus Fishing Boat is finally complete. Here is a log of final steps: ANCHOR Anchor consists of 3 hooks to be glued to the main rod, which is attached to a chain and finally to a thread. I had to drill the hole which the chain is hooked using a 0,5mm drill bit. And in place:

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.
