Thank you! I need to get back to something with sails though. I have some excellent plans of Batavia, Endeavour, and Beagle and a nice looking piece of boxwood. Time to choose.

Hi Joseph

 

Exquisite work, for sure!  If you’re able to, can you pls show us how you made those railings?

 

Thanks in advance

Gobsmacked by everything shown here, Joseph; including the care taken with the photographs. Thank you for sharing your passion. Do you have other examples of your superlative work?

Very, very impressive miniature work, Joe. The array of masts and aerials at that scale is outstanding. Well done!

Hey guys, glad you like!

 

all of my models are on my website: www.josephlavender.com

 

nothing for sale, no ads, just my ships. I don’t even take commissions anymore. I just build for the fun of it.

I like your models very much. Only for the coin it is visible how small they are. 

Don't tell me you are going to do Batavia at 1:1500...….

Glad you like them!

 

I’m putting Batavia on hold and building HMB Endeavour. I need some more reference material and I’m reading a couple books on her. So once I’m finished with those, I’ll have a better understanding of the ship.

 

I’ve decided to build HMB Endeavour. I have an idea for a simple diorama. I spent yesterday cutting the hull so today is planking day!

Wonderful work, Joe.  I'm just amazed.  I visited your website and looked at the models you have displayed there.  Again, just amazing.

 

You mention that the decks are boxwood too.  How do you scribe them like that?  When I try to scribe components that small, I struggle to get the lines straight.  Care to share your secret?

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.
