  1. Nice work Martes. Seeing your work, I recall that a few years ago, I was very obsessed with 3D modeling and game engine, especially the following real-time naval game scenarios. Some screenshots from game, very gorgeous scenes... I used to use Unity or UE4 engines to simulate the 18th century frigate naval battles.However, many aspects beyond my ability, especially C language and dynamic seawater (sea water plus special effects), need professional learning, so I can only give up later, now I focus on 3D modeling and CNC programming and processing, because for me, making naval games seems to be a dream, but 3D modeling and CNC programming / processing seems more realistic.

  2. Hello I remember you have studied Belle Poule in another post? Of course you have good drawings of Ancre now. I happened to see a draught of NMM, the text of ' 1810 ...As taken off...' was marked on it. I don't know if it means that the drawing was drawn in 1810, but it was when she was captured. Jack
  3. Hi every one! I'm glad that Mr. Chuck allowed me to participate in his KIT development, and thank you so much for the helpful advice from so many enthusiastic members...I'm really working with British model companies, which have obtained written licenses of commercial development from NMM . I can tell you a little more that there are two projects under development, one is the 50gun in the 17th century, the other is the 74gun in the 18th century, both of which are British ships, NMM style. At present, one project has entered the stage of 3D modeling. When I complete the modeling of this model, it will enter the validation of the actual model immediately. Several ship model experts participate in the design of this project, and there will be ship model masters to participate in the validation of the actual model. The design software used in the design process, as well as 3D sculpture software, and CNC programming software(CAM) are legal and obtain commercial license. Thank you again, MSW Forum and Mr. Chuck. Jack
  4. Hi Albert Great victory, great project, deep respect and best wishes for you! HJX
  5. I donated one more time, though not much. I think I learned a lot from this forum.
  6. Indeed, it would be tempting to buy a CNC/Laser Engraving/3d Printing Multifunctional Machine for just $299. I once wanted to buy a similar machine. The cheapest CNC engraving machine in China is only $70, and the cheapest laser engraving machine is about $42. I know you've been focusing on CNC equipment... My personal experience is that for making ship models or other models, , there (in China)will be at least about $700 -Does not include any software and computers.. Compared with ebay's , it will cost about $950, only three axes,800w motors.And this kind of machine can not be used for high-intensity processing, such as for Kit production.
  7. In my experience, this kind of machine is only toy-level, or just for "Study", which is not suitable for model making. 3D printing is OK, laser can not cut more than 0.5mm, that is to say, can only leave a marking line on the board, but can not cut the board. The function of CNC is very weak. Can not cut more than 5 mm board, and the accuracy and stability is not enough, in Chinese website known as the "toy engraving machine".
  8. Hi ben752 On NMM original drawing(Atalanta J4428), the head of sternpost is not marked clearly(maybe), if it happens to be under the lower edge of gundeck,see following pic The data of steel' is 1 ' 2",and the 1' 2 1/2 "is the measured value on the graph- to the inside of the" cover ".1’ 1 1/2" is the measured value of the head on graph--But I adopted the extension line, so there will be some deviations.I used 1' 3" because I didn't go deep into it. I suggest you need to prepare a data sheet, Just as Mr. David suggested me before. In addition, I am very curious, how do you determine the center of the arc of the stempost, I found the data in the data sheet about stem center."Above the upper edge of the rabbet"-13' 7 1/2",but I could not locate the horizontal positioning. Thanks. HJX
  9. thanks NWSailor That data is not my card number, that may be another serial number, but in order not to cause misunderstanding, I delete it.thank you!

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.
