  1. Everyone thanks for the thumbs up In the meantime I made the ammunition cranes and hatches for the 8.8 cm artillery. Since I don't really have clear pictures and information about the situation, I came to the following. I think this is pretty close to reality. Below some photos.
  2. Thanks everybody for the thumbs up !! started with the construction of the motorboat standard. below a few pictures, explaining more than words
  3. Wish that i could shrink my self like Pan Tau does then i could sail on your ship !! Absolutely beautiful done !!
  4. And we're gonna go a little further Thank you all for the thumbs up and fine words. The boat cranes are ready as far as I can see The rivets are a kind of decals I once bought for model trains HO scale 1/87. this came pretty close to the 1/100 scale I'm building in. Some pieces come out nicely but also many pieces is the rivet for rivet to place, I fix the rivets with a liquid (solvaset) this makes the decals slightly soft and therefore more beautiful to form. The "old" ones weren't nice in shape and were distorted, so I made new ones out of styrene (pvc card). The funnels the round one I rebuild from styrene card, the oval ones (3) I brought back to the basic shape, filled all smal holes (air bubbles) with a combination of superglue and backing soda, the rest of the deformations i filled out with car epoxy, and then reshaped them again, with a combination of styrene and epoxy. Did this for most of the (yellow) resin parts that came with the model so far, resulting in a box full of parts and components, just as an example. So under some pictures of the boat cranes. All the best , and stay safe !!
  5. update: thanks everyone for the thumbs up and kind words !! I've started with a first start for the on-board cranes since I didn't like the included on-board cranes I've decided to make them new. under some photos (its still premature, but gives a impression)
  6. first everyone thanks for the thumbs up Update : I think that I can close the steam launch chapter, I consider them more or less ready, so small details left but that I will apply on a later moment. still one motor sloop left but that’s a other chapter on a other time. below a few pictures.
  7. small update Thanks for the comments and thumbs up Still working on the steamboats, have made tarpaulins, the steam boilers and machinery and some details to the upper structure this far. Now working on the propeller shaft and rudder blade and some other details on the hull.
  8. So I started making the 2 steamboats and motorboat, What in itself is still a nice complex puzzle, this because of the fact that there is not much image (reference) material, and of the material what is there is very diverse. But okay i made the choice to equip the Scharnhorst with 2 steam and 1 motor sloop. I've made a start with this, will keep the hulls of the sloops, but the further decks and superstructures I will continue to make myself. The housing of the steam sloops was a construction of frame and tarpaulins, I made a start with this, the motor sloop had a fixed superstructure. Below some pictures, it’s still a work in progress but as always pictures say more as words.
  9. I go tired of all the time saying beautiful, fantastic, awesome, incredible and stunning work but that are the only words that come up when I look at your amazing work, Oh yes and amazing too !! keep up the ........ work all the best Boris
  10. Thanks for the comments and thumbs up And we're going a little further The last 2 parts of the railing where made, as well as the deck-hatches , all the coal winches and the boat stands for the steamboats. And also from the United States I received a message, that the display case is ready, took some time (because of the situation) but is finally ready, and will find its way here these days. Beneath some pictures, always say more as words.
  11. Thanks everybody for the responses and thumbs up. Continued with making a set of skylights. And I made 4 cylinder shape objects ??? could not find any real clear information in my plans and pictures, so with the little information I had about the objects, I had to improvise and Came with this:
  12. Well done !! I see you have great skills with brass. but your skills with wood are also great! Great job ! all the best.. Boris279.
  13. didn't see this one neither, nice collection of brass you have there, like your work !
  14. Thanks everybody for the comments and thumbs up. Made the hatches to close the engine room windows. also painted the rooftops of the stowaways on both sides, and added some small details to the doors, and because today was a nice day I brought her outside to take some pictures. 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.
