But this is advertised as 1mm copper. https://www.vandijkenelektronica.eu/nl/wikkeldraad/1408-wikkeldraad-1mm-035-ohm-16m.html

Or do we talk different things?

Received it today. Works great, very soft. Ordered 0.8 and 1mm. However since it is wikkeldraad there is an enamel paint over the wire.

Tried different solutions to get rid of it, aceton, terpentine. But it wont solve. Maybe wasbenzine. Well, i.ll keep on trying.

Thanks for helping me out Jan.

Yes thats possible, but that leaves no nice surface and as the copper is soft it wrinkles and bends like h....

So I would like to remove it keeping nice smooth copper wire.

Tried lots of solutions. None worked. Alass.

I've build a wooden clinkerbuild dingy for my herringlugger. Here some pictures how I did it. Don't know if it's the smartest way but it worked out for me. For steambending the wood I've build a woodsteamer from an old rice cooker and soms loose materials.

It looks smart to me Kees and the results are excellent.  A beautiful model - an informative log. I will be watching for future updates.

The deck is a little bit too clean, otherwise you could almost think these are pics of the original. Your detailing is great!!

Btw: it looks as if you do far more than cutting on your cutting mat......

Bad habits die hard... 🙉🙈🙊

 

Thanks for the kind replies and for hitting the like-button. The deck indeed needs some colour and maybe some staining. I will work that out later in the build

 

Kind regards, Kees

What is the thickness of the brass sheet you are working with?

The thickness is 0.3mm. I bought a couple of rolls last year for very little money.  In the Netherlands it's called "Latoen".

I don't know for sure if it's brass or maybe yellow copper

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.
