It has been my experience that figures in this scale are very hard to find. Especially non English figures. Looking forward to what becomes available.

Those look superb. I just wish my painting skills could match that standard of figure.

The Captain wouldn't work for my RN frigate but the crew certainly could. Another reason to go 1:48 as well..

I wonder if it would be possible to create seamen in 1/64 scale and WW 1 or 2 era? If yes, I would need 10's of them for my new warship project. And what would be the approximate cost?

3D seaman takes a lot of time from drawing to production, and it's a huge project, which I will continue to increase, including officers, combat status, British, French... These themes are very many, but very fun

1: 64 or 72 percent will be gradually produced, which is very convenient,

I haven't started WW1 and WW2 themes yet, which should take a little time. Now the general themes are 1:350

 1/64 scale  warships, super huge👍

It is truly a hard area of the hobby to fill, as it seems everyone has a different desire and size wish. I personally wish you luck and success Tom, as I also enjoy having people on my models to help bring them alive.

I am beginning the build of a model of a Finnish armoured cruiser Ilmarinen in 1/64 scale. It was 93 metres long, resulting to a model length of nearly 1,5 metres, so not really very long. But it would be nice to get a bunch of seamen on board.

Very nice, Tom. At some point in the future I can envision having these printed on 3D color printers. I have seen examples in  miniaturemuseums such as Gulliver's gate in New York and they are very realistic. Price, though, is a bit high for now but I'll bet people would be willing to pay for a realistic period crew.

Even one figure on or near a model sets the scale in the viewer's mind.  Very nice pieces.

That's certainly true Maury. I commissioned a few figures long ago from Dynamic Dioramas in 1:48 scale for my dockyard model. I think they add nicely to the final display. The sawyers are an homage to Harold Hahn's diorama in the Mariners Museum.

Once modelling has been done, it should be possible to print them in all sorts of scales ... it's more a problem of managing the Web-shop than a technical one, I would think.

Painting such figures realistically is quite easy.  I just follow the methods used by war gamers.  Block in the colours, don’t bother painting eyes, etc.  Drybrush with lighter shades and use the “dip” method to bring them alive.  I use the “Army Painter” dips with excellent results.

 

i love figure on ships and they really bring the model to life.

 

Well done Tom!   I’d also love some modern and WW2 figures in 1/96 to 1/72 scale.   Sign me up!

 

cheers,

 

kerry

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.
