Der Holländische Zweidecker by SuperSylvester - 1/50 scale following the plans of Heinrich Winter's Hohenzollern model

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.


Hereby I will restart my build of the Hohenzollern model by the plans/book of Heinrich Winter.

The project was started late 2009 based upon the plans of the Mamoli-Friesland kit but I changed

over to Winter's one. 


Jack is the name, The Netherlands my homecountry.


I will not post updates from the past, I start with new pics the way she is now.

(for those interested in the start of the project I can give a link to a Dutch forum if you like)



The latest update from the stern, not the easiest part

Struggling with the moveable windows, I just can't get it right. The windows are too heavy in my opinion.




Alternatively I decided to close the 2 center windows en let the outside windows just open. (this is what Dik (7-prov) also assumes.




I'm still not sure if I leave it this way but I have to go on with the 'Kajuit'






Still a lot of work to be done.

Thanks Matti.


The Captains room (Kajuit)







Tjerk ordered himself a package from a well known 17th century furniture shop, that will keep him busy for a few hours:






I'm proud of him, he even used all of the screws.... (or they ended up at the bottom of the sea :P )

Leaded glass windows are difficult to imitate. My solution was to take thin acrylic sheet and score it with a sharp knife for the lead cames. I then rubbed dark grey acrylic paint into the scores. The result is shown here.

That's another good way to imitate, I have also a tip from Michiel to print the lead on a

tranparant sheet with a laserprinter and I think that is the easiest way to do it.


But your methode looks great as well.

More of the smaller stuf including 26 canons for the "verdek" - deck














I didn't want the captain to stare at his maps in the dark, so I brought him some lights








And finaly, I decided to make this piece (don't know the English word for it) which is absent in Winter's model.

But, I didn't like the open version.





I will keep you up to date more often, that's a promise...

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.
