Hello Giorgio.

As others have said a stunning build.

Looking at all your close up photos I thought it was the full size ship I was looking at.

It's only the red "g" clamps and the pencil that gave the game away. :)

Excellent workmanship.


Regards Antony.

Hi Giorgio,


It has taken me several visits and I'm still just at page 12 of your log . . . . . my eyes have seen so many of your photos but my brain is struggling to accept that anyone can do what I've seen !!!


If your build was of a full size, real ship the quality of workmanship would be amazing ~ but this seems almost impossible for it to be "ONLY" a model !

Very wonderfull work.

I have a couple of questions for you:

which kind of shellack did you use, e.g. colour ?
what kind of formulation for the the shellack did you use, e.g. commercial product name ?
how did you apply the shellack, by brush or tampon ?"

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.
