Amalio,

 

Your work is impeccable.

 

What a fantastic idea, attaching sandpaper to palette knives. I would have never have thought of it, but I can see how useful a tool it would be. Simple, elegant and now that I’ve seen it so obvious. Are you hiding any other gems you’ve come up with?

As an avowed tool-junkie I would love to have a peek into his tool-chest ...

 

Sticking sanding paper to palette-knives sounds like a good idea. Although I have 'inherited' a bunch of them from my mother, when she went to a retirement home and had to give up porcelain painting, they are too big for my scales. Perhaps one can make ones own micro 'palette-knives' from bent thin steel strips with a suitable handle. They should have the same size as toolmakers rasps/files or watchmakers echappement files.

I would only assume that you are using a small jig to accurately and consistently drill all these treenail holes symmetrically?  If not...you have more time and patience then almost all of us marvelers combined.

It's truly refreshing to see trunnels and plugs depicted at the proper scale, in the proper places, and with an appropriate species of wood. Too many otherwise well-done models are marred by improperly placed, over-sized trunnels and plugs of  contrasting color. 

 

These are so good, I bet the grain's even running in the right direction!

Words can't describe....though we try.

I stopped a long time ago ... I now thoroughly enjoy the view. It's a pitty I can't give a weighted "like", something like platinum

Just found this build. Words fail me. Seeing is believing. Amalio, your work is unreal. If I had 10 lifetimes, it wouldn't be long enough. I weep at your feet.

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.
