  1. 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.
  2. Update placed the steam launch and secured her with clamping straps, also made the rope ladders, and placed a few fags, below a few pictures, as said before pictures say more than words.
  3. Hello, I purchased the hull from MZ modellbau in Germany. Later I figured out that the hull original came from ML modelships, when I was looking for propellers, I asked Aleksandr for it, because of the similarity of the hull on his page.
  4. Hello, thanks for the response Added a few pictures, they are not completely in chronological order, but will give a impression.
  5. Hello Chris, The pipes they have to be on the outside of the grabbing rings That was also for me a point of confusing, first i made all the pipes on the inside of the grabbing rings, witch was quite a puzzle, but later after studying some pictures, it became clear to me, so i had to re make everything, Only have one picture with all the piping on the inside, did not make a picture with the pipes on the outside before painting.
  6. Hello, Started this project august 2014 (did not keep a build log on this forum, only on a German forum and partly on a Dutch forum.) bought it as a kit from M.Z Modellbau in Germany the kit came with a GFK hull and a lot of resin parts, to make a RC model, Decided to build her as a static display model. used only the bare hull and added a lot of details to it Remade almost all the resin parts 90% of it (structures) So it became a nice collection of evergreen, brass, print board and silver wire. After almost 5 years and researching almost all parts, (used a lot of the work of Mr Huff and collected pictures of the Emden and her sister ship the Dresden) before constructing them. I finished her for almost 95%, still a lot of details to go. below a few pictures for the impression
  7. NICE !!!!!!!!!! very wel done !! quite a accomplice, quite a jewel you have there !!! Well done !! For me still a long way to go, but now i have quite some reference to look at What will be your next project to come ? all the best Boris279
  8. Hi Mobbsie, I think you underestimate how strong silicon really is, I build my glass case 1.4m x 0.8m x 0.4m of 4mm double layer glass, all bonded with the silicon I mention before, and also I build 2 other glass display cases for my ships all bonded with silicon, all those cases are full glass with no frame or what so ever. And I build a fish tank for my daughter 1m x 0.6m x 0.3m of 7mm glass with no support and that thing till now never leaked one drip of water all bonded with marine silicon. It is not that i have any interest in the silicon industry what so ever, but i come from a 3th generation stonemason family company in the Netherlands , and in that industry we use it a lot, and therefore I know that that stuff is really strong, if you use it in the right way !! just my 2 cents Boris279
  9. Hi Mobbsie, I justed for my Glas display case a silicon used in the marine industry That stuff is really strong mutch better than the regular silicon kit. The brandname of the kit is "Boatlife" here is a link to there webside : http://www.boatlife.com/silicone-rubber-sealant-cartridges/ You will Need to work very precise because after curing it's pretty difficult to remove the spilled dry silicon.
  10. Very Nice work your cannons, nice work !! But i have a little but...the rigging to move the cannons is it not a litle to much line, although i imagine my self the deck in a fight all the gun crews working around the canons, so then i think the long lines must be getting a chaos, Just how i see it, and perhaps i am, wrong just my thought, for the rest a very nice build !!! Martin
  11. Nice work in progress over there !!, copperplating looks really great, your "Aggy" starts to become a real gem. keep up the good work and picture coming !! Greetings , Martin
  12. Absolutely nice job going on there, follow your progress with great intest Looking foreward for some nice pictures again All the best

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.
