  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Update Thanks for the thumbs up ! Spray painted the Hull in RAL 7000 and 7001 and spray painted the waterline. Leave the paint to rest for a few days In the meantime I will start to make the bulls eyes on my lathe. Below a few pictures for the impression.
  4. This is the rear of the Scharnhorst, there you can clearly see the torpedo tube.
  5. Thanks all for the thumbs up, appreciate it. And the story continues made all the doors and added some detail to the doors. Also made the guider and protection for the anchor chain (sorry i do not know the real name) made the support for the bridge and the ventilation duct. And finished all the grabbing irons. just a few more small things and she is ready to be spay painted. below a few pictures
  6. Thanks everyone for the thumbs up. Small update: Made the bridgewings and installed some of the grabbing rail, Which is also used to place a shadow cloth.
  7. The paint I used is prepared for me, I'll bought it in a paint shop for car paint. It is a mix out of 50% Ral 8004 and 50% Ral 3013 Diluted with a thinner and applied with a airbrush.
  8. I bought it already a longtime ago from Zinnecker Modellbau. don't think you can buy at MZ anymore, but you can send him a email to know for sure. But you can also buy the same hull in the Ukraine by ml-modelships.
  9. Thanks too everybody for the thumbs up. Finished all the whimpers of the bullseyes. and made all the hatches and hinges not much words just a few pictures 😀
  10. A few of the build at the moment. The grey colour is still a primer, will going to paint her in grey finish Ral 7000 and Ral 7001.
  11. After finishing my S.M.S Emden I decided to build for my next project the S.M.S Scharhorst scale 1/100 my decision is based on the interesting history of this ship and the in my eyes beautiful lines of her. The hull is purchased from M.Z Modellbau, (so that one is not scratch) the rest of the model i will make from scratch and some purchased parts, so it will be a combination of both. Will build her in the same way as how I build the Emden (administrators feel free to move this topic where you see need too) so I already started with the model will post some pictures below from the beginning of the project and as where i am at the moment. Sorry for the disorder of my picture,'s
  12. Nils thank you ! Heinrich, thanks for letting me know about the flag , appreciate it. (changed already the flag) perhaps a lite late for me to answer, but i finished the Emden on 20 march this year, started already with a new project. 😀 (a 1/100 S.M.S Scharnhorst) below a few pictures of the finished S.M.S Emden.
  13. Thanks for the responds and likes ! Finished starboard side all the rigging for the sloops and steam launch, the night sail installation and the rest of the navigation lights in both masts Also finished the last parts of the rigging and placed all the flags. below a few pictures for the impression, as said before pictures are telling more than words.

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.
