Right you are, Druxey.

 

From what I see so far, I am sure Albert is up to the task.

Hi Albert,

 

Great work!  Did you have any trouble enlarging the plans for the 1/48 scale?  Is the table that you are working on what you will use for your building board?

 

Thanks,

 

Reg

Hi Reg,

No it was not a problem it was enough to enlarge the drawings with the scanner, and what you see in the picture is not the yard, I'm building.

This build is deffo an exercise in precision... I think you would need a 'bit-of-a-lie-down' if you saw my work station Albert (think 'explosion in a timber yard' and you'd not be too far off) :)

Wonderful to watch the pinnacle of this hobby of ours!

Albert,

 

Very nice work on the shipway, the gantry and the clamped squares.  I trust they will serve you well in the work ahaead.  I join the others in marvelling at the neatness of your workspace.

 

Again, good luck with the build.

Albert, one other thing - I know it is dificult to provide English text with your pictures, but I am sure everyone would be interested in descriptions. Perhaps you can use Google translate to give English translations. I know this will add work to your postings, but your initial progress promises to yield a very beautiful model and I can assure you that many - I for sure - would like to read your descriptions of the work.

 

Just a suggestion.

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.
