  1. I used to build small models. The sand makes them heavier so they sit better in their stands and the feeling when you lift them is more solid.
  2. I used to fill my models with a sand/glue mixture. It is obvious that they float like lead ducks. 😉
  3. I am not worthy to comment on THAT. Thatswhy I brought my bro: HOLY CHRIST! What a beautiful work!
  4. Johann, it has been said here and elsewhere already very often. The way you are planning your work, the way you are performing it and especially the way you are able to reflect yourself and change things if necessary is simply astonishing. If you were a bridge builder, a car constructor, a rocket scientist: Be sure I would love to jump on your bridge, perform a speed run in your car and fly to Mars in your space ship. I dare to say: You are a shining example of German engineering. It is a pleasure to watch your build log and especially its constancy over the years. Thank you for posting it here for all of us!
  5. Link to Steingräber Modelle: http://www.steingraeber-modelle.de/index.htm Shop Page unfortunately only in German. Link to a modeller that built the Admiral Vernon and some pics. Email of the modeller is provided on the page, maybe you can contact him for further infos: https://www.modell-schiffe.com/products/admiral-vernon-1895/
  6. Your Dad must be a great man that he raised such a daughter. How nice that it now pays off for him and you are helping him with his hobby. I am sure he appreciates to see his ship finishing. Keep on the good work! Grüße aus Heidelberg! Harry
  7. "Flying Cloud: The True Story of America's Most Famous Clipper Ship and the Woman who Guided Her" by David W. Shaw Interisting read with many explanations about the weather and the course. I ordered mine at Amazon.
  8. Merry Christmas to you Andy. Looks a very calm day without snow. Hope you guys treat yourself with nice food and a peaceful day. I have to work here too, that is life. Maybe next year.....
  9. "Harry, can I look at the photos of your model of Endeavour?" You can find some in my gallery here in MSW. Just follow the links to my gallery in my profile. Thanks for your interest!
  10. Hello Igor, my dear friend. Your Endeavour came out fantastic, much nicer than mine with all that details and the clean work. Only the stern is a little bit too "round and bulky" for my taste. When I built mine I used the same plans you did which aren`t the clearest. I tried to make the hull in "plank on frame technic" which was a real thrill in that scale of 1:500. Looking forward to see yours bottled. Have a nice day. Harry
  11. Your build reminds me of this song from the musical "War of the worlds": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brvzh9c5w98 The battleship "Thunderchild" tries to stop the Marsian invaders. Your build is great. Looking forward to see the whole ship when its ready.

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.
