  1. Did this ever get any traction?
  2. I realized I had discussed this build but never posted it. Here is my 1/1000 (USS) Wasp Scratch build. The hull is basswood, the details are mostly brass, rigging is tungsten wire, the sails are linen paper.
  3. I’ll probably post a photo of the superstructure before I prime and paint.
  4. Here is my scratch built RMS Servia as she appeared in her early years of service. The hull is basswood, the deck is laser etched basswood, the remaining details are brass. The sails are made of linen paper and the rigging tungsten wire.
  5. The schooner Wyoming in 1/1000. The hull is basswood, decks are laser etched basswood, details are a mix of basswood, Tanganyika, and brass. The masts are brass and the rigging is tungsten wire. The sails were made using linen paper.
  6. Greetings, Off and running again with my 1/1500 scale scratch built KuK SMS Viribus Unitis in her as-Built green camouflage. The hull and turrets are made from maple, the rest is made from brass. The deck is planked with laser etched basswood.
  7. Indeed. This also holds true in scale modeling in that using absolute colors like black or white make the model appear garish. For all my work in 1/700 scale, which I don’t think I’ve shared here, I don’t even own black paint in any form.
  8. Great! I’ll be sure to keep the sails a bit lighter then
  9. Tha is for the replies guys, sounds good to me, flax it is.

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.
