Greetings from Chile!

Yes... Chile!

Very glad to have found this forum.... I wasnt that much of a ship modeller until a few months ago so i just discover this very nice group.

 

Started with models some 35+ years ago with a few 1/72 matchbox airplane kits and it has been my hobbyever since with some deviations in between (who aint..) with Marklin HO trains, R/C sailboats and girls.
A friend asked me to build a 1/350 Tamiya Yamato Premium edition back in january of this year and it turned out really good with the addition of a wood deck and some eduard railing. Now im finishing an 1/350 Academy Graf Spee for the same friend and after that i have to tackle the 1/200 Bismarck also for him. In the meantime i just lost interest in aircraft models so i ended up selling pretty much all of the stash (some 200+ unbuilt 1/72, 1/48 and 1/144 kits) and started creating a quite decent 1/350 stash.

 

In real life im a long time member of the IPMS-Chile main branch (and IPMS-Chile Facebook group admin too), i managed to marry a gorgeous gal, have two wonderful kids and i work as a Naval Architect in a ship design office, but that's another story...

 

Looking forward to learn tons from you and if i can be of any help, just let me know.

Cheers!

German

Welcome to MSW, German. There are a quite a number of people here also making models similar to yours. Make sure you start a build log for your Graf Spee - even though it's already under way. It's a great way to get help and advice from others who have already been there and found solutions to the inevitable problems that crop up. And some have the most amazing research resources on ships of the type you are building.

 

(Also, we like to see pretty pictures! :D)

Welcome to Model Ship World German.  We are glad you found this forum.  You have some nice ships to build and I hope you will start build logs on them.  We have some fantastic builds of plastic ships on MSW and I enjoy following their build logs.

¡Bienvenido a Model Ship World, German! Me interesa que usted es de Chile. En el año 2018 mi esposa y yo viajamos en su pais para un mes, y pasamos mucho tiempo largo de la costa. Yo escribí sobre esto viaje a Chile en MSW, ¿quizas le interesta leerlo? Planeamos volver, pero ahora no podemos por el virus. Es muy desfortunado, por que durante nuestro viaje nos conocimos a mucho gente y creemos que los Chilenos son muy simpaticos y interesantes. Mi español es limitado, pero he trabajado duro antes del viaje y después, por que los dos queremos volver a su país. Espero que puede me entender. ¡De nuevo, bienvenido!

Thanks again!

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.
