  1. Yves work is always smart and a pleasure to watch 🙂 Width between two tires half an inch its interesant... tamiya model looking better, of course, it is about scale... better scale, more details... Jan. MMSk
  2. Nice idea.. I drive on motorbikes from my 10 years. Before only motorbikes made in Czechoslovakia, like JAWA and CZ.. Later first Japan m.b. HONDA VF 750F (nice too) and finally I am driving on Honda CBR XX Superblackbird. I will folow your new build. I am looking forward.
  3. Very very nice model and precision work. I especially like it weathering... Beautiful ship.
  4. Sorry Lou. I wrote bad my think. I have problem with control and flip my thinking... when ship cruising from me and I push controller to left a ship will turn to left. When a ship cruising direction to me and I push controler to left again a ship will turn to right... This is my problem. I have to focus on that change. I know it will get better over time. I remember this topic what you write now in my previous building log. We've taken it over before using engines... But a new and very good idea is abot micro switches on the arms of servo. This ideas is "family silver" for me. Thank you.
  5. I already mentioned that I really enjoy the praise. And I know that many of you have great experience and nice models. That's all the more ... Thank you Grant. Jan. MM SK
  6. Thank you Mark. Before I decided to build. I knew I would focus on two main things. Camouflage and rigging. I used realistic photos trying to create as much as possible similar to the real Bismarck. Because I saw several buildings and many of them had bad camouflage from my point of view. 😉 Jan. MM SK
  7. Lou. I have basic problems, when ship cruising direct to me problem for me send it left or right... So storm or dark.. ??? uhhh Next time I want testing lights in the dark. That pool will probably be too small for me ... 🙂 Jan.
  8. Yves. Its not about my courage, its about my naiv more times... I don't realize what can happen. I found this models on the net also Tirpitz. I never hear about this brand. It must be older. Its made in USA When I was a small boy we had all "made in Czechoslovakia, Rusia and east Europe countryes." We had also good products, but small assortment. Jan.
  9. I am bringing video of first voyage. Its possible watch also in 1080p quality... Sorry Its not so good because I still have not some holder for camera. In one hand radio controll and second camera. Next video I want made in dark. I want see lights on the ship and use some camera holder... video link:
  10. I wrote before that I saw your u-boat before I start Build my Bismarck. So I thought I had to try to be good. so your recognition was very pleasing Thank you 🙂 Jan. MM SK

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.
