  1. Robert, I can only say that I am really impressed! Amazing work!!! -Heinz-
  2. not real progress, but when I am here, I can also post a picture...
  3. Thank you very much, Robert, I really appreciate your opinion and appreciate your compliments!
  4. Thanks so much for all the nice words. I try to do my best and learn a lot from all the good posts in this forum. Thank you! I am very proud!
  5. Thank you, Ludger. Of course I sand every part that I build. Due to the fact that I don't use paint, I use my own wood. I trim most parts to old with the black wood paste. And then I paint the wood with a matt wood varnish. I am really glad you like the look. 🙂
  6. and now the pictures with the new ropes. Hopefully you like it as much as I do 🙂. Best wishes for the new year!!! -Heinz-
  7. It is almost 1 year ago that I posted something new about my victory. Time for an update! The foremast is now finished. I had already set the shrouds when I came across a dealer on the Internet that offers self-twisted ropes. I immediately decided to buy it and make the rigging on my model anew. Several hours of work for the garbage can ... but it was worth it, wasn't it?
  8. Simon, this is amazing. I would not hesitate and order from you. Maybe for my next model.... 🙂 Best -Heinz-
  9. Kevin, I was not home for a week and now I see your comment. Many Thanks! You are embarassing me. Unfortunately, my model is not that good. Especially since I'm not done yet. I will continue to try my best and use your blog as a guide. - Heinz-
  10. Hello Kevin, your victory is so impressively beautiful. I keep going back to your blog to see their pictures. It is for me guidance and motivation in one. You can be very proud of the result! Many Greetings -Heinz-
  11. Robert, very beautiful and many good ideas on your Victory 🙂 Keep it on! -Heinz-
  12. Time for a new update. In the meantime, my Victory has turned 6 years old. No idea when she finally grew up. I started with the foremast now. As always, I only use my own walnut wood. It's very nice, but hard to work with, because it's very hard. This makes it very tedious and exhausting. In addition, I do not suggest the metal bands around the mast with an adhesive strip and paint, but they made of wood. That also means a lot of filing and sanding. As you can see, I already started with the Mastheat. For the small wooden slats I needed new wood, which I had to wait a few days for. Of course, everything is just plugged together and not yet glued. I hope I do not overlook important steps. I look regularly in my books and here in the forum. Thanks to Gil and Kevin and the others for the many great pictures, where I can orient myself! All in all I am not as far as I would like to be. Everything takes a long time. And in addition I have rebuilt something in my cellar. I got a large wooden table (2 x 1 meter) and cleared out the old workbenches and kitchen cabinets. That stole me a weekend :-). I wish a nice Sunday! -Heinz-

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.
