  1. Finished all the lower decks and coal hatches, up to the last part of the puzzle. The back deck, witch will be complicated, because of all the deck housings and other small stuff.
  2. Thanks for the thumbs up and kind words. Update: Finished the other 2 decks of the gun citadel. And made some of the windows Also made the coal hatches in the decks. And did some work on the front deck. Below a few pictures, telling more than words..
  3. Gentlemen thanks for the thumbs up. Finished the first part of the planking of the decks, quite a puzzle, but i am happy with the result,I'll Do not know exactly if the pattern used for the planking is correct, looked at a lot of pictures from other models of the Scharnhorst and not 1 is the same, So i decided to choose for this pattern, not the easiest way to go, But the easiest way is not my way
  4. After some studying of some pictures, I decided that below the chain run was a wooden dek. And not steel/ iron So I decided to remake everything again from wood.
  5. And today I received a unexpected visit of the building inspector, to see if everything goes by the rules. After the necessary "threats" I received the Ok to continue my building activities.
  6. Gentlemen, Thanks for the thumbs up. Finished the Linoleum Puzzle 🙂 So now I can start with the wooden decks.

  9. Nicolás, The part marked on the picture is a torpedo tube The scharnhorst was equipped with four 45 cm submerged torpedo tubes, One was mounted in the bow, one on each broadside and the fourth was placed in the stern.
  10. Started with the bulls eyes Turned them out of brassrot on my lathe. Coated them with a clearcoat of lacquer, Placed them and filled them with Kristal clear liquid glad. Below a few pictures for the impression.

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.
