  1. After laying the moldings I put the gunwale, always in walnut always using strips of 5 cm to make the curvature (even if these of the main deck was necessary to make them with three parts, joined with simple interlocking, under the carryover the walnut board that I used to make the strips made with the "fet", (it is the walnut that was in the backyard, but four years ago a strong wind made him fall, and I made many tables for modeling, and with the trunk of the boards of 6 thickness cm, with which I made a large table, but this is another story ...) carryover of the photos with the finished gunwale it seems that the issues related to the loading of the images are finished, I have not found any problems, the system puts more time loading images, but it seems much more stable, see you next time black wolf
  2. yes Cog, I had to decrease the size of the photo (the photos that I post are already old compared to the original are usually around 400 kb, and I have no problrmi insertion, with the last inserted I 's decreased to 180 kb, and the system allowed me to insert it without problems) See ya' Fabio
  3. I had to change the photo to insert it, then finally, inserted see you next time black wolf
  4. nothing to do I always get the error message "! -200" maybe next time black Wolf
  5. "thank you for the likes", after finishing the internal moldings I started to make the external ones, to make them I had prepared a cardboard shape, the wood used is the walnut, are whole pieces to make them I had to make the walnut boards of 8cm x 1mm as you can see I have brought the shape with the pencil and then I cut it out, positioning it on the wall connecting the whole profile of the ship finished the first part I realized the other (the error system 200- in the insertion of the image, I try to insert it later)
  6. It is very convenient it is a kit consisting of three disc blades with different diameters_ kit 28830 proxxon useful for cutting on already placed details Fabio
  7. Congratulations Patrick for your build, I started following him now, ... better late than never, because it's really beautiful, and I'll definitely continue to follow him! Fabio called luponero
  8. Still some updates on the work done on the caracca, the positioning of the foremast shaft, (always made of walnut) its inclination is towards the bow After the tests, without gluing the tree, I continued with the plating inside the sides to finish the moldings of connection with the upper parts, specular to the external molding on which the gunwales is laid, with the pencil I bring the curvature, then I cut the interested part with the blade, to insert the part made using the templates, which were used to make the moldings ending them on all sides of the boat see you soon black Wolf
  9. thank you, Patrick I'm happy if you follow the work, Steven, the image is a miniature taken from the French manuscript n. 6440, dedicated to the Zeeland family of De Vere, late 15th century. reported with a scanner from the book, I do not know if the English version exists, but I can assure you that it is very beautiful, with images of medieval paintings, that you would surely appreciate, eventually, you can translate the pages by doing the scans and using the translator as I often do, I have to run out "we'll hear" then Fabio
  10. Thank you Steven, interesting images related to the bomb, I agree with you for the wheels, usually the tips were placed on the crossbars, probably on the bombards from "earth" were present the wheels, report of images related to the culverin (bombardella) and a painting where is reported an armed battle between a carac and a battery on the ground of three bombards (with wheels) visible shooting operations conducted by a ballistic and a gunner (we hope that the translator translates "well") I have seen that you are also interested in the Genoese navy, lately I bought a very interesting book: La Marineria Genovese - from the Middle Ages to the Unification of Italy by Piero Campodonico, you report below the cover of the book (maybe if you're interested you can find it sau amazon) my nickname for the avatar is a black wolf, but my name is Fabio to hear from us Fabio
  11. the wood used for the balustrade: walnut for the supporting structure, the central cherry cross section, mizzenmast and boom always in walnut in the photos below, the central decorations of the balustrade (should be floral subjects, more or less ) see you next time luponero
  12. unfortunately I must have made a mistake in loading the images, for not having translated the previous part and for not having explained the various steps, I try to do it now, apologizing for the inconvenience, I thank Steven for the appreciation for the work, I am also a lover of ancient ships and I follow with attention the updates on the "dromone" and the interesting historical and technical details inserted, the work on the carack went ahead, I finished the deck of the bridge with the usual material used for those made previously, the previously inserted photos refer to the construction of the balustrade on the bridge of the quarterdeck bunker
  13. Ti ringrazio per gli apprezzamenti per il lavoro, anche io sono u appasionato di navi antiche e seguo con attenzione gli aggiornamenti sul "dromone" e gli interessanti approfondimenti storici e tecnici inseriti, i lavori sulla caracca sono andati avanti, ho terminato il tavolato del ponte con il solito materiale utilizzato per quelli fatti in precedenza,
  14. before fixing the wall stably, I had to make the shaft of the tree (which is inside the part under the form where Columbus was lodged), where the end of the foremast is fitted, made by turning the piece into walnut, under the tree detail (unfortunately I have difficulty in inserting images,) I will try again tomorrow regards luponero

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.
