One thing has left me no peace. The "pampered" quarterpieces (some will be happy now what comes) ... hehe ...


For a long time, I had been thinking about how to do that, a few tests ... but for such things, these "No Risk No Fun" days must come .. Today he was: D

I wanted to come with the existing (unfortunately flattened) figure and without complete new building in a direction which a) is closer to the thing and B) is "feasible".








Basically, I am very satisfied with the result, a little finetuning later when it becomes final and I think then looks quite useful :-)

 The carvings look great. I'm always amazed at the black that you have obtained.  It might just be the photography however I will have to look back in your log to find out how you did that.

I just returned from a 2-week trip to Germany and had a look at your build log. What a progress! I love how you integrate the figures into the stern gallery and how you emphasize the details with your painting technique! Did you recast the figures? They look very detailed and precise. Great job!

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.
