Which mescherschmits? I presume the Junkers will be Stukas Ju 87 ...

 

THe carrier looks quite used, so congrats on that. Very realistic, even for a ship which in reality has never sailed.

Have you seen the programme on national geographic and now on UK channel 5 "Drain the oceans" where they use computer graphics and scans to remove the water and show wrecks etc at the bottom of the sea, the graf zeppelin stars in one from Norway i think showing it after bombing by the Russians as training after the war

WOW Greg what a great peace of work! Sorry for being late for the fun but better late then missing your build.

I read all seven plus pages and thoroughly enjoyed them all.  I'll try to keep up to the launching.

 

Cheers,

Deck railings done on the starboard side, as well as nets, ammo boxes on the deck plus some additional life rafts on the railings from North Star. Ship’s boats slung. Tomorrow I’ll do the port side.

Impressive yes it is a form of art ;) Kevin

 

A couple of questions Greg

1.when you built the PE mast do you solder or SS?

2.when you rig what's your preferred filament?

Kevin, 

 

there are several variants of denier rigging, Infini, Uschi etc. you just need to get different diameters, some are so thin you can hardly see them. 

 

I pretty much use CA glue for everything, using different quick or medium depending on the task.

Fitting her out. Spotlights, signal lamps, most of the AA guns ( I’m awaiting the final 6, as the KA kit ones aren’t very nice), fully rigged crane, range finders included as well

I thought I’d add a little bit of extra detailE6A0D872-CB15-4C71-8A2E-C5B1EF823E61.thumb.jpeg.290f776a4762b230db46d5e05f62b394.jpeg

it took about 3 days, I wanted to perhaps do a seaplane that would act as a recovery or guard plane like they have helicopters, but the only one I really liked is about $100USD for a 1/350 plane that is not with it, so a fast patrol boat it is.

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.
