Hi Kees,

 

Good to see you back on the workbench!

As usual, your detailing and execution are wonderful.

 

Question: is this red the final colour, or will there be a black (?) top-coat

Thanks for welcoming me back and for the kind response to my work on the deck. 

 

@Jan: The red is the basecoat and the hull will be painted black later. The inside of the the railing (Bulwark) stays red and offcoars the part of the hull beneath the waterline.

Thanks for all the kind words and all the likes and views. I really enjoy building this fishingship but I have neglected to post more often. Now I have settled in my new job and education I hope to post more regularly.

Kees, very nice!! Question: the copper wire is that 1mm? where do you purchase that in NL?

 

I do find 0,5 but I also need 1mm and can't find it. (Maybe not looking hard enough....)

Extremely nice work on this model Kees.  Very interesting build methods producing great results and your Milliput figures are true art.  I have read through your other build logs and admire your styrene work and weathering techniques.  I look forward to future updates and watching this build progress.

The wire in the picture is more like 0.4 or 0.3mm but I will have a look for you. Maybe I can find some 1mm wire. I do know there is 1mm brass rodd for sale in hobbystores but thats very stiff rod.

haha, I am in the electronics business.... But no 1mm solid core copper. The main there is either stranded wire or solid core but then 1mm2 or up.

So As said I do have the 0.4 and 0.5 but 1mm seems hard to find. And some times you find 1mm brass but as said above that tends to be quite stiff.

 

Well we keep looking.

 

Thanks for all teh help/answers.  Hans

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.
