YTL-45 Taiwanese Navy tugboat by Erik W - FINISHED - 1/350 scale

Recommended Posts

Though I haven't made any progress on my Cheerful in a couple of years, I did manage to complete a ship build.  This is my Orange Hobby resin 1/350 scale YTL-45 Taiwanese Navy tugboat.  The buoy is also from Orange Hobby.  I work slowly, so the entire project wound up taking around 6 months.  The tugboat is 240 pieces, with around 60 of those being fabricated by me.  The buoy is 25 pieces!

I was admiring your work, checkin' out the details, then, when the photo of the display with the pencil came up, I sat back in my chair and said to self, "Whoa! Didn't expect

it to be THAT small!" NICE!

Thanks guys.  Mike, yeah, weathering is a bit tricky in smaller scales.  If you weather heavily it looks OK when viewed in person, but looks overdone in enlarged photos.

Really nice!!! Good to see you posting. Are you jumping back on the Cheerful?  That was also turning in a spectacular model.

Chuck, 

 

Thanks.  I seem to be back in modeling mode now, and had packed Cheerful away carefully expecting to pick it back up again.  I'm in the middle of a small project now, so I'll see how I feel when I'm finished with that.  It would be nice to move forward with the Cheerful build.

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.
