  1. Oh sorry... I didnt realise you are done with hull painting! Anyway... just tried to help.
  2. There is a paint which I have used on my ancient builds, the bireme and the olkas that looks like pitch. ModelExpo MS4830 HULL SPAR BLACK
  3. Lower masts in place. Dimension in the kit's instructions have errors. Painting was done with white spray pain from tamiyia. All other painting work was done with vallejo paints
  4. Masts and anchors look great. But in your last picture I have realised how successful is your deck floor! Outstanding. I notice you got your rope from germany. I bought my rope also from Marx. Very good quality and reasonable price. Do you wax it? How do keep the rope together after cutting it? I use cyanoacrylate glue. Christos
  5. @Louie da fly thank you Steven. Yes on the stern and also on the stem,in the lions hands. You must imagine, the scale is 1/89, so it was impossible to succeed more sharpness. The stem coat of arms is bigger, so its sharper than the one the lion holds.
  6. Stem fnished. Lot of work.... lots of fan. The figurehead in place, the Lion with the coat of arms, the net, the gratted floor and ofcourse on top the two catheads (anhor windlasses). Sorry for the letters on the pic, its the cathead in greek... καπόνι! (kaponi)
  7. Stern windows, abacum's decorations, coat of arms and name plate in position. Ofcourse the stern lantern and the safety chain of the rudder.
  8. Rudder chain in place. The coat of arms and the name plate took all my artistic skill....🙄... big lenses were very helpful.
  9. Thank you very much... its the vallejo paints. "Helmsman", is it the wrong word for referring to the man on the wheel? Propulsion on sailboats is the wind power!😊

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.
