Carving for Royal Caroline

Recommended Posts

Hello friends 

In almost all my ships, I made the carvings from pear wood with a dental machine (K11). 
This photo shows the decorations of the Royal Caroline on the side walls.

The ornaments were milled from 2.5mm thick wood. The book was used as a template  "Anatomy of the Ships", "The Royal Yacht Caroline 1749" of Sergio Bellabarba & Giorgio Osculati.

Practice creates masters!!!!


Greetings Hubert

I mixed my gold color from 2 different gold colors in a ratio of 75% (Müller) to 25% (Lukas). 
For me it looks so good.

I have one of these in my stash of models and you've inspired me to move it up in my build list.   Not sure I could come close to your carving skill though

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.
