  1. Hi Jan, This is good stuff, thanks for that picture. Im going to try and make this!
  2. The mamoli parts are very bad metal casts. I tried drilling the holes open (they were not open all the way through) and it snapped in two. Also they didn't really fit and look clunky. Because I can't find these dutch models with the rope grooves in it on any webshop so far, I might try and make them myself. Fingers crossed
  3. Ok any threads showing how to make one yourself? I have few tools so im mostly stuck with a scalpel, dremel and files
  4. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-qOBXNUlWZJw/VPiTcGht5JI/AAAAAAAAkX8/4PICoCWeDOs/s1600/IMG_0001.jpg This is the part Im talking about
  5. What is this part called in english? I broke a few and some mamoli parts are incorrect so I want to attempt at making my own pr buying better parts. So far Ive not been able to find much Thanks!! Chris
  6. Hi Jan, Do you have a good reference? I might have to dig up my 7 Provinciën PDF somewhere to see what's in there.
  7. Hi Jan, a set of drawings would be great, are they in scale 1:75? What are the big and small rowing boat called? Im seeing different names used around the net.
  8. Thanks for the tips guys. Waiting for new wood and parts to come in then I can continue!
  9. Also maybe a good link to scratch the ship rowing boats? What were the guys at Mamoli thinking with these clunky metal cast atrocities lol !
  10. Does anyone have a good description/thread of making the wooden parts of an anchor ? Im not a fan of the prefab mamoli pieces and consider making more detailed scratch parts
  11. Hey guys Ive not had a chance to build the last half year. We moved into our new house, my 2 companies has been really busy (in a good way) and we are expecting a new baby. I do want to get on with building cause I miss doing it, but its hard to find the time really.

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.
