Good morning, gentlemen!I wanted to show you something from my collection. I've been carving for years. I have a great experience. I have a serious tool.

In 2010, I was visiting Ivan Trtanj, in Kressbronn, Germany. He is my countryman, he lived in Zrenjanin not far from me. That meeting left a strong impression and inspired me.I immediately accept his advice, because what he did for me was a new and quite new direction in building a model of ships.

Hello savo1,

Your carvings are quite impressive. Can you please tell us what advice you received from Mr. Tritanj. I have seen some of his

work and it is truly exceptional. I am a real beginner and can use any help available.

Hello Savo.

Outstanding job on those carvings, really.

Would you be so kind telling me where can i find the plans of the holland ship you are showing, named DE LIEFDE?

Do you have them?

 

Wich kind of pearwood do you use? Any special kind? And what finishing do you apply on it?

 

Keep showing us your work it's fantastic, really a pleasure to watch.

 

Greetings.

 

Giorgio.

I got plans from man who hired me to do make that ship. That model is now in New York on some better place. It is not mine and I dont have permission to give it or sell it.
Pearwood is not straight its wavy. I really dont know what is that kind.

For finishing I apply linseed oil.
I will upload if there would be some project. I would like to do this more often but its harder and harder to find buyer for this work.
I also made carvings for ships and If you know someone you can recommend me.

You have a gift! More than one I should say! Your miniature carving capability is magnificent and your tooling is equally so. I was intrigued with your copper plate bench top tool. Is the die replaceable for different scale and patterns? And what thickness copper do you normally use as the tool looks pretty formidable. I would like to try to make one. Thanks.

Joe

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.
