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

Hi Jack


Wow!!! Talk about taking modelling and wood carving to a whole new level....absolutely superb.


You must, undoubtedly, have an incredible amount of skill and patience to achieve what you've done.


I look forward to following along.


All the best

Hi Patrick, thanks for your compliments but it's not really woodcarving.


I used some dentist drills on a little Dremel-thing and making one fish takes about an hour to 'carve'. 


It took some more time and effort to design and build the whole beakhead bulkhead while this is no part of the original model. 


I hope it looks okay...

Have you seen the model by Peter (Mr Hollom).

That's becomming a real stunner: (can't impute a link here ...., search for Hohenzollern)



It seems the build of Mr. Hollom has been deleted??

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.
