Schooner Halifax by rafine - FINISHED - Lumberyard - 1:48 - semi-scratch

Recommended Posts

Since no log can be deemed complete without some overall photos of the finished model, mine are attached here.


I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have followed this build, who have hit the "like" button, and, particularly, those who have provided their support and encouragement through their generous thoughts and comments. It is gratifying to have such an appreciative response from such a talented and accomplished group of modelers. Thanks again.


I hope to see you all on my new log for Prince de Neufchatel, which will be opened a little later today.

Beautiful work but your pictures are out of focus.  Please take new ones and also include some closeups showing interiors through the open areas in the deck and hull.



It is indeed a beautiful model, and I've been quietly following your log. 


I believe the slight fuzziness in the photos is due to camera movement, not out of focus.  If you blow up a detail, it appears to be more linear motion, rather than a "circle of confusion".  A more rigid tripod or camera support, and perhaps a remote shutter release or self timer rather than a finger on the button might do it.


Congratulations on completing a fine model.

Thanks so much Albert, mpeltier and Richard.


Richard, I'm sure you're right and I appreciate the advice, but I'm afraid that I consider photography as more of a chore than something that I want to spend time on. Mpeltier, for that reason, I doubt that my next efforts would be a whole lot better than these. As to photos of the interior, I have previously recorded all of the interior work, in much better detail than anything that can now be seen (much of it is hidden entirely, or almost so).

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.
