  1. The lever is needed to rotate the gear axis, it is removable.
  2. Thank you all for your feedback and likes. I continue to work on the ventilation pipes. I make a mechanism for turning the trumpet.
  3. Yes, Eberhard, these parts are made using electroforming. The wax mold is coated with a conductive layer of graphite and lowered into a galvanic bath. I already told the details in my topic above.
  4. It doesn’t matter, you can buy such solder in Ukraine. For instance http://www.zpsplav.com.ua/pripoi/posk50-18/
  5. Thanks, Michael ! In this assembly, I did not use any heat dissipation devices. I applied a simple scheme of sequential actions - initially massive metal parts are welded together and only after that small parts are soldered. In a short time of soldering smaller parts, the remaining larger ones do not have time to heat up very much. Therefore, the parts do not fall apart from overheating. A special role is played by the composition of the solder: Sn - 50% Pb - 32% Cd - 18% This solder spreads very quickly in the right direction and this nuance allows you to reduce the heating time of the surrounding parts, protecting them from overheating. With this soldering, I mainly use a 30W and 60W soldering iron, very rarely 80W. And only the sharp tip of the soldering iron.
  6. Rosters , ammunition rail and bridge for the transition are soldered together.
  7. No, I did not use the template. A simple soldering process has been applied here.
  8. Keith , when soldering with tin, I use a thin soldering iron tip and after soldering I carefully clean the traces of solder.
  9. I welcome all members of the forum in 2020. And I continue to build my model ...
  10. Thank , Gary! They are intended for fastening davits and soon I will show them in action.
  11. To my regret, the Russian fleet of that period was a collection of ships with technical characteristics that were very different from each other. Therefore, it is impossible to call the Russian fleet balanced, this is one of the reasons for the tragedy of defeat. Although undoubtedly the ships were beautiful.

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.
