  1. @Svein Erik: My source for Mara 220 is http://www.tokokurzwaren.de/ The shop is in german language only. But they are also selling worldwide through amazon.com, yet not all available colors and sizes are advertised on amazon. It may be worth a try to mail them and ask about delivery to your country. Other Mara sizes are more widely available online. In the UK, William Gee carries many of them, with all colors available through their website: https://www.williamgee.co.uk/shop/gutermann-threads-mara-150/ Klaus
  2. One of the advantages of the Mara product line is the large number of available colors. There are at least a dozen shades of brown in the catalogue that look like different kinds of rope. My personal favourites are #696 (pine tar) and #854 (hemp rope). More information about Mara can be found here: - Gütermann product website: https://industry.guetermann.com/en/products/mara - Technology description: https://industry.guetermann.com/adbimage/6237/asset-original//mct-leaflet-thread-technology.pdf - Available colors and thread sizes: https://schlemming.de/download/Farbkarte Mara.pdf Klaus
  3. It's available through Amazon.de. Try searching for "Minwax golden oak"
  4. Hi marsalv, that's a very impressive build. As a novice builder I can learn a lot from your log, e.g. the treenailing method you use. But how do you simulate caulking? Thanks, Klaus

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.
