  1. Thanks to everyone for the kind comments and likes. Before equipping the 1st gun deck, I fitted the deck beams and knees of the 2nd gun deck and then dismantled them again. Karl
  2. Ballast stones mixed with quick sanding base as an adhesive. Karl
  3. Thanks to everyone for the kind comments and likes. Ballast stones, size and color of the stones changed. Additional storage barrels installed in the storage rooms. Karl
  4. Production of the storage barrels in the individual work steps. Although I didn't fill the entire storage room with it. The ballast stones should actually be a bit smaller and more rounded, but I didn't get them anywhere. Also works like that. Gerard Delacroix once wrote to me, Ballast stones were roughly the size of a walnut. Ballast stones were mixed thoroughly with grinding ground sa an adhesive, and filled up between the individual barrels. Karl
  5. Here is the link to the homepage of Ivan Trtanj. http://www.historische-schiffsmodelle.com Karl
  6. Hello Gaetan, in your photo does the ruder blade consist of four parts? Optical Ilusion? G. Delacroix wrote to me, only in three parts. Karl
  7. Hello Siggi, why the cannon-tulip in red? I haven't seen that anywhere else. Weshalb die Kanonen - Tulpe in Rot? Ich habe das sonst noch nirgendwo gesehen. regards Karl

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.
