Passing of Karl Heinz Marquardt

Recommended Posts

It is with some considerable sadness I relay the news that Karl Heinz Marquardt, whom many of us will have heard of with his interests in Maritime History, as a Marine Artist, Author and model maker and restorer, passed away late yesterday (Thursday, 31 January).  Karl was 92 and lived a long and fruitful life, but despite giving it a 'good fight' cancer won the battle in the long run.  

 

I shall miss his friendship and our regular discussions on things nautical.  My condolences to his wife Sonja and his family.

 

Farewell my friend, may gentle winds and calms seas smooth your travel.

 

regards

 

Pat

Sad to hear. I never was in personal contact with him, in spite of the fact that much of our work overlapped. I did not always agree with some of his viewpoints, but just like the loss of Jean Boudriot, it is more than obvious that we lost a great name in ship modeling. Let's be grateful for his useful publications.

A German colleague, Kay Wunder, has been running a Web-site on the behalf of Karl-Heinz Marquardt over the last few years: www.karl-heinz-marquardt.com. There you can find a CV written by himself and other material, including an account of the above restoration undertaking.

Hello all,

 

Karl's family have asked me to pass on their heartfelt thanks for all of the kind thoughts and condolences.  While missing him very much they take much comfort in knowing he is remembered by many.

 

regards

Thank you Pat for this sad information. My condolences goes to his family! 

 

I had the privilege to e-mail him two years ago over his draughts of the HM Colonial Schooner for Port Jackson and got some hints and meanings about to store or to tie up a small jawl.

 

Will missing him.

Daniel

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.
