La Jacinthe by Kortes - FINISHED - 1:42 scale - French schooner

Recommended Posts

My work on the “La Jacinthe ” is coming to an end.

There’s always room from improvement, so one must know when to put the final point.

I would like to express my gratitude to honorable Masters, Dmitriy Shevelev and Slavyan Snarlev, whose work had inspired me to build this beautiful ship.

I would like to thank my friends Oleg Seregin and Vladimir Turbasov for the photo reports on the building process, that were of a big help for me. I would also like to thank Vladislav Stavanov for his help and support and all the Masters who paid attention to my work and helped me by the constructive critics and advices.

My best regards.

What a beautiful model Alexander.  The color of the sails blend so naturally with the tone of the pear and contrast of the black hornbeam.  Very nice indeed!  A true museum quality masterpiece.

Your build has been very inspiring to me.  You have shown how much can be achieved with little in the way of equipment - just ingenuity, skill, artistry and determination.  Thank you for sharing this with us and the steps of its construction.

The wooden case was ordered a long time ago, so it was awaiting the end of the work for almost two years.

The carpenter is a real Master, I tried to find the good one for a  very long time, and I found him when I ordered the case for Carolina.

In conclusion, dear colleagues and friends, let me express my gratitude

to everyone who followed my work, for your responses and comments. Your opinion is

very important and dear to me.

 I especially want to express my gratitude to my daughter-in-law Valeria, who provided valuable assistance in

translating my messages, my knowledge of English for this was clearly

not enough.

I wish you inspiration in work, my dear friends.

With deep respect, Alexander Belan.

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.
