  1. Returning from Zlatibor Mountine, before I go to Germany to visit Princess in Chemnitz where she live and work, I continued to spend my vacation days doing ... hmm ... almost everything which bumps on my head Considering little progress on Her Majesty Signal lights - done Little beasts, I almost lost my eyes somewhere in my man's cave But, it seems ok to me
  2. Mark don't look ... Just testing how to make Port Lights
  3. And Rail Winches x4 Lou's detailed photo Body is made from BQ stiks, holder from Cu foil I was too much ambitious wishing to add some more details, until I saw how small it is
  4. Hello, Rob Having in mind that I make Her for two reasons 1. To enjoy working on her 2. To put Her in my living room when finish without any idea to show Her anywhere or to sell Her I decided to combine elements from Campbell plans with present stage I see on photos, with some details from Lou's set of b/w photos Also, considering several really big and important mistakes I wrote earlier in log, I found only way to get out from mud - to hyper detail Her, to mask my mistakes I know it is not accurate approach, but this is it I silently follow all your work with great attention! Thank you for your interest
  5. Thank you, my friend. Just playing, and make stop on point where it become hard to see difference between real masterwork and optimal work Ring holders, for example, can be made more precise and more clean, but it is only 1mm wide detail, so ... who could ever see that?
  6. Anchor davits, done Cu wire, 1,5 and 0,5mm I found somewhere in garage Next step Detail Attached with CA glue White acryl paint in 3 layers And finished
  7. Thank you for kind words, Denis Right now, considering that I am pretty close to mast/yards/sails/ropes stage, this speeds up me and runs to finish deck contents So, here is a little step toward Boat Davits Thinny and fragile, it seems ...
  8. Hey Jud Thank you my friend for very kind words He he … there is something as it is said ... "monkey see monkey do!" . There are so many interesting things in this world, which from time to time, almost continuously take my attention, so I have million of hobbies (modeling, guitar, painting, photography, writing and publishing short stories on FB, cooking, gardening, traveling, visiting old places, collecting and listening music, research history, reading books, visiting museums theaters opera ballet cinemas exhibitions concerts, etc. etc.) so my day is short for everything I want and everything I have to do for living, including my job, very close family relations particularly with Hothead and Princess, social life with many friends, and of course, my private emotional life … So, Her Majesty has to be patient and to wait for me About netting I think I used unappropriated word. I agree that netting was not in use in Her working years. But safety fence? There are some old photos where are fences on fore and aft deck are presented, also on Campbell`s plans So, considering my deccission to make model designated only to stay in my living room, which will be some kind of mix between C-plans and photos of details at present day, combining with details from Lou`s photos, with all sails spreaded, this is it Almost same story as ancient fortress here in Belgrade, named Kalemegdan fortress, which was destroyed and rebuilded more than 20 times in more than 2000 years of it`s history … where you can find remains of walls and structure from Roman empire time, midlle age time, Turkish time, etc etc. Onde day I was speaking with custos of museum and asked him - why you do not reconstruct a whole fortress? And he said - And in wish period exactly to reconstruct? Same thing. To admit, I am not passioned in that way to research and reconstruct Her Majesty exactly to one period of her long life. I enjoy in working on Her, and I will enjoy in her look when she will be finished one day Thanky you again for your very kind words and wishes Nenad

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.
