@shipman 

My reference, are the Wischmeijer plans, which I purchased in Germany from Zinnecker Modellbau.
 

and I use pictures that I collected over many years looking on the internet,(when you still could find pictures from better and higher  quality as it is now) 

 

unfortunately the Scharnhorst and Gneisenau  only had a 7 year lifespan. 
so there are not much pictures to find.

(some pictures of “ships” but not usable for details)

 

And for the rest I use pictures of the preceding Roon class cruisers for reference, which also has a lot of similarities with the Scharnhorst class. 


And I also post my build on a German forum, which is also a great source for ships of Kaiserliche Marine time period, “marine Modellbau und mehr“ (it’s in German language) 

That guys over there helped me also many times a lot !. 
 

all the best.

Yes, I've noticed this change. Does anyone know why? Google is becoming harder to find stuff, yet I've found no better site to go to as an alternative.

Made the hatches to close the engine room windows. 
also painted the rooftops of the stowaways on both sides, and added some small details to the doors, 

 

and because today was a nice day I brought her outside to take some pictures. 
 

all the best 05D9DF3B-95D9-4D0C-961E-D2E9805934F9.thumb.jpeg.4749a35c8ae7bd062e792dd482f6bd5f.jpeg

Coming along wonderfully well Boris. I was watching a film over the weekend about the search for and discovery of the the wreck. She is still in remarkably good condition 106 years after her sinking.

Continued  with making a set of skylights.

 

 

And  I made 4 cylinder shape objects ??? could not find any real clear information in my plans and pictures,

so with the little information I had about the objects, I had to improvise and Came with this:

And we're going a little further

The last 2 parts of the railing where made, as well as the deck-hatches , all the coal winches and the boat stands for the steamboats.

And also from the United States I received a message, that the display case is ready, took some time (because of the situation) but is finally ready, and will find its way here these days.

Beneath some pictures, always say more as words.

Magnificent, any correlation between the cleanliness of the shop and the reproduction? Reproduction describes the project more accurately than model IMHO

So I started making the 2 steamboats and motorboat,
What in itself is still a nice complex puzzle, this because of the fact that there is not much image (reference) material, and of the material what is there is very diverse.

But okay i made the choice to equip the Scharnhorst with 2 steam and 1 motor sloop.

I've made a start with this, will keep the hulls of the sloops, but the further decks and superstructures I will continue to make myself.

The housing of the steam sloops was a construction of frame and tarpaulins, I made a start with this, the motor sloop had a fixed superstructure.

Below some pictures, it’s still a work in progress but as always pictures say more as words.

Hi Boris,

I watched an interesting show on TV last night about finding the wreck of the Scharnhorst in the depths off of Stanley. After following your build I could identify every part of the ship the ROV was filming. What a pity to see such a fine looking ship torn to pieces by 11" shells laying on the bottom. I was thinking of the lost lives of all the sailors shown on your posted photos and those on the program who went down with the ship......What a waste.

small update

 

Thanks for the comments and thumbs up 
Still working on the steamboats,

have made tarpaulins, the steam boilers and machinery and some details to the upper structure this far.

Now working on the propeller shaft and rudder blade and some other details on the hull.

first everyone thanks for the thumbs up 

 

Update :

 I think that I can close the steam launch chapter, I consider them more or less ready, so small details left but that I will apply on a later moment. 
 

still one motor sloop left but that’s a other chapter on a other time. 
 

below a few pictures.

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.
