  1. Hello, I made mistake while building the rudder blade or did not read or understand the drawing correctly. Why, see information from Gerard Delacroix. Karl
  2. To all model building friends, Question and request, does anyone have documents, photos, pictures of that Model / Ship LE CENTAURE 1782 ? I would be very grateful for any information. Karl
  3. The conversion / dismantling / demolition, will probably take some time. The plan drawings of the rear view are not congruent. Karl
  4. Hello model building friends. After completing the "ROYAL CAROLINE", the question arose, what now? The solution is the already existing "74 GunShip" section. The pictures show the current state of construction. I will have to make some changes to the rear/mirror first because I decided it must be the "LE CENTAURE 1782" . A big help in the constructionof this model, especially in the interior, will be Gaetan Bordeleau with his 74 GunShip model. Karl
  5. Hi Greg, link to my website: https://c.web.de/@357488279966194296/ocaMLvoTQ2Ost8fNe0cU8Q
  6. Completion of the model. During the construction report, I did without explanation / working methods etc. , because I thing the photos say more than a lot of words. All pictures during the construction phase can also be seen on my hompage. Many thanks to Mike for helping with the construction of the frames. Thanks again to everyone for the kind comments and likes. Karl Part 26 / Finish
  7. Hello Johann, a wonderful job of yours. I am always enthusiastic about your model and the precise execution. Question, you have colored the ratlines? Ivan Trtanj told me once that the ratlines, although standing rigging, were never paved. (Google Translator) Hallo Johann, eine wunderschöne Arbeit von dir. Ich bin immer wieder begeistert von deinem Modell und der präzisen Ausführung. Frage, hast du die Webleinen gefärbt? Ivan Trtanj erklärte mir mal, daß die Webleinen (obwohl stehendes Gut) nicht gefärbt (geteert) waren. Grüsse Karl
  8. Thank you for the kind comments. Update Rudder system and various railings installed. I saved the most difficult section, the bow section, at the end. I will not install the cannons on this model, but the eight gun-carriages (Lafette) are mounted. Karl
  9. Hello Johann. Beautiful work. Model construction at its finest. Karl
  10. Hello model building friends. Built-in brass covering nails degreased with cotton swabs and acetone, painted with solvend-based wood glaze paint, taking the drying time into account between each application of paint. Finished. The result looks pretty good in my opinion. Karl Eingebaute Messing-Belegnägel mit Wattestäbchen und Aceton entfettet, mit lösemittelhaltige Holz-Lasurfarbe zweimal bemalt, zwischen jedem Farbauftrag die Trockenzeit beachtet. Fertig. Das Ergebnis sieht meiner Meinung nach ganz gut aus.
  11. Hello Druxey, thank you very much for the comment. I'm trying to implement your suggestion. greetings Karl
  12. Thanks to everyone for the kind comments. Update Mounted various equipments / objects on the forecastle deck. Karl Part 22
  13. Thanks to everyone for the kind comments. Update various superstructures, such as ventilation grille, stairs and anchor capstan. Replace nails / Coffie nails from the nail bank that were somehow too thick. The new Coffie-nails fit the construction much better on a scale. Karl (Google Translator) Part 20 * Part 21
  14. Hello Greg. I agree with you. The Coffie-nails don't really fit on this scale. Bild 1 Therefore the new Coffie-nails in the required scale. regards Karl
  15. Hello model building friends, a little update. The pictures speak for themselves , therefore no great explanations. Karl Part 19
  16. Thanks to everyone for the kind comments. I build the Royal Caroline model without the luxurious and pompus interior of the Royal Apartments. The following pictures of the beautiful and magnificent models by Attila Králl and Doris Obrucova show how these rooms were possibly equipped. Karl Part 16
  17. Hello Gaetan. Many thanks for the pictures and construction progress shown on the 74 GunShip. I wish you a Happy New Year 2020 and continue to have fun and success with your work. Karl Weinmann from Germany Google Tranlator

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.
