Copper sheet cover:
I took the 8 mm adhesive copper, I made a brass shape with guides to cut the shape of the rivets.
The rivets are engraved with two toothed wheels of different sizes for the edges and for the central part.

Really beautiful work!  I like how your copper plating came out.  Can I ask what you used to achieve that effect?

I used this product purchased on e-bay:

Green / White (Tiffany Green) Patina Solution, Copper, Brass


I did some pieces of copper before testing.
You have to do different applications with the brush and when it is still wet, clean the surface with a damp cloth.
The liquid is a bit irritating, you must use a mask and use it in an airy environment.

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.
