  1. As Bruce already said, you can use the little disk symbol (red circle) in the upper right corner. It then opens a new page (data.ashx tab in the pic above) with the plan. Then enlarge the plan with a left click and right click, 'save image as...'
  2. Through industrial espionage missions educational trips of their shipwright trainees. These were a part of the very thorough education danish naval engineers received on the way to the top post of fabrikmester (with tasks similiar to the british surveyor). For example, Frantz Hohlenberg travelled to France, England, the Netherlands, Italy and Sweden before he was recalled to Danemark. Um, 'step'? The transition from 'normal' planking/diminishing strakes to the wales?
  3. No planking and the breadth given is breadth moulded. By the way, the numbers on the right side give the distances between station lines.
  4. That's the Virginie-class La Belle Poule, launched in 1802. Not the same ship, hjx. The danish archives hold a copy of the original french body plan of the 1765 LBP, comparing that with the british 'as captured' plan might be worth the effort
  5. Within the register? Hm, depends on what you want. If you have a certain ship in mind, you can try the alphabetical ship names register (Skibsregister, alfabetisk efter skibsnavn (1690 - 1848)): https://www.sa.dk/ao-soegesider/da/other/other-collection/40 Also works with the constructor´s name (Register over skibe uden konstruktørnavn (1690 - 1848) ) If you want to search by ship type, then use the link I posted above.
  6. This site takes you to the scanned registers: https://www.sa.dk/ao-soegesider/da/other/index-creator/40/1835813/17172962 Although there seems to a problem on my end, as soon as I open one of them, I get a small message box saying 'picture temporarily not available' in danish. Never had that happen to me before... *shrugs*
  7. Sure there were. I'd suggest getting the excellent Frigate Commander. Reading Moore´s diary entries about his relationship with his crew and officers will answer your question :)
  8. Heilung is awesome...my go-to background music when playing Skyrim or Hellblade. Also good for work outs!
  9. Uh, another Blender user, good And very nice and easy to understand tutorial, I'm looking forward to seeing further progress on your Ernestina. My approach usually is a bit different as I'm using textured planes for the draughts, but that´s a matter of taste, I suppose. That´s a swedish sloop built in 1760s, by the way.
  10. Haha, don´t worry, guys, that´s the usual first reaction to 2Cellos. If you haven´t already, check out their Sydney Opera live show, simply amazing! By the way, that´s my favourite, their Californication cover (original by Red Hot Chili Pepers): Turn the volume up - preferably on a good sound system - and enjoy
  11. Well, Floor (and Anette before her) certainly had big shoes to fill, Tarja is pretty much one of kind. More eclectic stuff ^^
  12. @uss frolick Caravane Palace, very good choice! A few music vids from my playlists: Classic and some good old Heavy Metal
  13. I can only recommend this gem, one of the best books on naval history I've read so far! Willis' manages to pack a lot of information on a single page and makes it easy to read. 'The Admiral Benbow' and the 'The Fighting Temeraire' also are well worth buying.
  14. Blenheim, launched as a 90 in 1761, was cut down to a 74 in 1801. There's a profile plan showing the alterations (without the round bow, though) in the NMM collection.
  15. The compass is divided into 32 points, so 3 points would be a bit less than 34 degrees.

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.
