  1. My name and last name are from Germany. But my mother language is spanish. My great grandparents migrated From Germany rigth before the second world war.
  2. But you are completely right. I have been thinking about it some days I think to take it out and put it aside...some others I think to take it out and leave it inside the boat....and some others I think to leve it as it is........😄😄
  3. In the diorama is going to look like this..... Is not finished yet!!!! But we will need to wait because this log catch up my work already 😀 Regards
  4. Working in my diorama.... I decided to work in a wooden “old” 4 wheelbarrow...... Design in autocad Let’s start with the wheels..... The axels, board and assembly...
  5. now.... let’s start to see how is going to look forward.... but before we need to work in the beach capstan .... Beach capstan.... from the monograph I took the plans. I realize the scale is not right. So for this 1:12 I decided to take the internal plan which is 1:24 ....
  6. Base..... I decided at this time, it will be my first diorama. So I went to the internet and the monograph and I saw a couple a good ideas. I went to prepare de basa as a beach with sand, taking care of the leveling, not uniform surfaces and so.... I put some logs...aged. They are going to “receive“ the boat.... Let’s see how is looking so far..... I t need to be completed with some “fences” and fixing some spots without sand...
  7. Steven, Nils..... Thanks for your kind words. I need to confess...... so many repetitions..... but I really enjoined the results.
  8. Anchor grapnel....... This piece has some difficulty since we have to weld 8 pieces in a little space. Producing heat that will pump out those pieces that are already welded. So I decided to make a “mold” where all pieces can be “secured” ....... Two pieces of wood with 5 holes.... 1 for the central piece an 4 for the hooks. One 2 mm wire heated in one of its ends...... Smashed..... Its hole.... A little tube in the other end and hooks in 1 mm wire.... All pieces in the “mold”. Secured an welded...... So far... so good... Tips..... And blued.....It is done

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.
