  1. Mark I just realized your question. My mistake. they were used for so many porpoises. 1. they were the longboats of big/line ships 2. were used to do many maneuvers with anchors, crew transportation and so 3. When they were decorated and adapted like a “luxury” boat, they were called Falúa and were used like a private transportation boat for high rank officers or royal family yes the length of this boat was like 11-12 mts regards
  2. G Good Morning Today I'll show you how I made "The Pedrero" First.... I made it in wood. This is going to work to form the mold Second....... I use Clay to make the first half Third........ I use high temperature Silicone..... The firs half is ready. I use the first half to replace the clay and repeat the process to make the second half. With a really sharp knife I do the little channels to evacuate the air at the time of the foundry. As demolding agent I use a common powder. The the foundry using a pewter kind metal Aging Process And instalation

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.
