  1. Update on my progress so far. This is my first card model and it’s a learning curve for me,some things on the ship are not quite right but will improve next time.
  2. Do you also use some sort of clip or peg to hold two pieces together while drying.
  3. I was scribing the Lon with a run out biro pen , used the back of knife but that seemed to score it to much.
  4. Bit more done today, getting the bends in the card is a bit fiddly my be not dead on the line some of the time, see how it goes on.
  5. The grids are in cm.
  6. As anyone worked with Hamburg models, I’ve seen one of the German surface raider Stier in 1/200 scale.
  7. Started on the bow section with the hidden gun mounts below, got some gun barrels coming and some laser cut parts. finding it easier to do as I get into it but got some really fiddly parts to do yet.
  8. I have a scanner printer not used it in a while but will try using it for spares.
  9. Started the model today. Think it’s going to be a learning curve to get it right or just looking ok, never done a card model before hope to getting experience to start a big one later on. Any tips or help would be helpful.
  10. Thanks all not started yet but will do soon.
  11. Ok thanks will look into the free model , just need to get my printer sorted out.
  12. Hi I’m from Essex in the UK, I’ve not done any modelling for a number of years, a model I just bought is a JSC card model of the German surface raider Atlantis. I’ve never done a card model before and look for some tips to help me, later on I would like to try some of the bigger ones so just learning on this one. Thanks Wayne.

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.
