Your build is so amazing. The closer you look the more realistic it appears! Have you ever considered placing people on the ship?



I would if I actually made a sea base for it! In my opinion displaying the ship like I do doesn't really fit into it. Atleast in my opinion.

If doing a simple diorama then hell yes!

I spent few hours figuring how to do that but didn't find anything useable! 🤔

You have to make one yerself ... just tie some knots and you'll manage fine ... if you can work with PE like you do, that basketball net will be a walk in the park ;)

And prolly the last update before finishing!


After seeing this I knew exactly what I wanted to have on the helipad!




Only one I could find in 1/350 for the moment was a Sea Dragon from Orange hobby so that had to do!


The chopper is made of resin and some PE details. I dressed her up with my own details including grab handles wires etc. details.










And on the deck! Had to move the Pioneer a bit and added one deck equipment tractor.

I just completed a breathtaking ride through your magnificent build.  There is such a wealth of detail that it would take hours and hours to fully enjoy it in person.  I shudder to think what you would do at a larger scale - my guess is everything would work!  Congratulations and happy holidays.


Thanks for taking time to share your skills and techniques.

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.
