  1. and again, I'm full of admiration. and I see how much there is for me to learn yet.
  2. Here is my long time build (> 10 years) . I'm going to pick up work on her by the end of this year. Basically its's my first ever scratch build after initial two kit models. Still a lot to do, but I enjoy very much thus being compelled to learn lots of new technologies and skills, materials and manufacturing know-how. With the support of this Forum I'am sure to come up with a nice model some day. 😉
  3. Thank you ever so much, Valeriy for your quick answer. They look so perfect. I've seen some half cowls made from brass sheet embossed by hand in a negative wooden die. Electro-forming is undoutedly much more precise. Congratulations
  4. Thanks Chris for your putting my question into an understandable technical expression. Yes, electro-forming is what i wanted to say. Thanks Valeriy for confirming. I would appreciate very much a description of your technology, if your time allows.
  5. Dear Valeriy, absolutely stunning work! How did you make the cowls of the ventilation shafts, by electro-galvanzed building-up fall-out? They look so much better than punched half-cowls brazed together.
  6. Hello Valeriy, wow, fantastic work! Varyag is of the same period and style as a future project I am planning to build: German Gun Boat Iltis II stationary of Tsing Tau in 1900. Looking forward to learning of the progress of your Cruiser. Joachim
  7. Hello Captain Hook, I made a compilation of gun sizes ( Armstrong Frederick-Design ) of 1760. Dimensions in Imperial and conversion into metric. Some details of carriages ( also in German language) from various sources as well. All in a xls sheet. I will try to turn the 3 -pounders on my small Unimat-3 lathe. I'll inform about results later. I'm working on Af Chapman English cutter. Armstrong-Frederick Cannons Umrechnungen.xlsx
  8. Hello to all of you from the beautiful area of the Western Wood in the State of Rhineland-Palatine in Germany, I'm happy to be a new member of MSW and this most interesting forum. I very much appreciate the profound historical knowledge and technical Know-how displayed here in the Forum. I am mainly interested in historic ship building of the 18th century in Europe and the US.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
