  1. I went a little bit further with the model. The false bridge: The beams of the first bridge:
  2. Working on this scale is really difficult; It is necessary to be very precise because a small error of a few tenths of a millimeter is enough and the measurements no longer return .... In the work you have to caress the wood, obviously only with manual tools, perfectly sharp chisels, fine sandpaper, precision tweezers, double magnifying glass (now I don't see it more closely). The gluing must also be very delicate and the excess glue must be removed immediately. For the hold compartments the thickness of the boards is 0.4 mm, and the glue must take hold on this minimum thickness ..... But this scale is very exciting for me!
  3. this work of yours is one of the best masterpieces I have ever seen! ... Simply wonderful and perfect in the smallest details! You really are a great one, Johann !!

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.
