  1. Nice job Ian. Perhaps my build log is interesting for you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoA9Op0C9N0 Cheers Lin Feng
  2. The name of the shipwreck is MS "Loullia" it was a panamanian ship (not russian), Before the ship belongs to the east german (DDR) company "Deutsche Seereederei". You still can see the funnel mark of the east german company.
  3. I bought the flags from this german supplier. http://www.schiffsmodellflaggen.de/english/english.html Very good quality.
  4. Power and the Glory: The Sculpture of the Warship Wasahttp://www.amazon.com/Power-Glory-Sculpture-Warship-Wasa/dp/9174022369
  5. Santa Maria made of gold Seen at the International Maritime Museum Hamburg
  6. I did it also the easy way and ordered the flags from http://www.schiffsmodellflaggen.de/english/Catalog/catalog.html also printed double sided.
  7. Please check the entry for the "Wasa" from Billing Boats, the nation is Swedish not Swiss.
  8. Thanks Mark, but yours looks better. All others thanks for the likes Cheers Lin Feng
  9. Some progress. Installed the gun barrels and the rudder blade Painted some sculptures and placed them in position. Painted the hull with "Danish OIL" Cheers Lin Feng
  10. Looks very nice. Maybe I missed something from your build log, how did you manage the problem with the chain plates? because in my Sergal-kit they are too short. Best regards Lin Feng
  11. As a former sailor, I have been many times to the Great Lakes. As I remember, the max. permitted draught at that time was 24 feet, is it still the same? If your ship carries different cargoes, let's say one time coal and the next time grain, how are the cargo holds cleaned/washed, because the regulations at the lakes are very strict? It is not allowed to throw any waste or pump any dirty water over board.
  12. Is there no lantern included in your kit? there is one in my Sergal kit.
  13. Hi Matti, fantastic job, I also admire your scratch build cannon barrels. My Sergal kit contains only one size of 43 mm long barrels for the upper decks. I want to try if I can also build the longer and thinner barrels, as you made it. Do you have any measurements of this barrel in relation to the other cannons on the upper decks. Cheers Lin Feng
  14. Some progress. Plywood parts of the kit which will be seen after assembling are made new with pear wood. Cheers Lin Feng
  15. The price of 2,850 $ cannot be correct as you can see here: http://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/acatalog/corel_wappen.html
  16. Congratulation to your new toy. Hi Michael, I made it the same way, but I think you mean the "Channels", chain plates are different things. Cheers Lin Feng
  17. The case for my HMS Agamemnon is about 140 cm long, 110 cm high and 56 cm wide. I made it by myself and used glas of 6 mm thicknes. The weight only of the glas without the additional wood is about 70 kg. For me it is OK because I don't have to move the case from one place to another.
  18. Some Progress: Completed Port Rail and inner Bulwark
  19. Maybe following will help. There is also a belaying plan on the site http://www.jans-sajt.se/

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.
