How is a small decoration born? Many ask me what technique I use or what tools I use for the small decorations of my model. I thought that maybe a video can give the right answers. Obviously it's a lot of speed up, it took me about three hours to make a small frieze like the one in the video, but I think you understand it well ....

One way to avoid carving up your fingers is to mount the blank piece on a backing block of wood. I use PVA glue to hold it. That way, fingers are well out of the way and one has good control while carving. When the complete, I soak the carving and block in isopropanol (rubbing alcohol 99%) to release it.

These days I proceeded to finish outside of the model: I have given two coats of sealer and, after finely sanded, two coats of paint opaque transparent finish. All spray with airbrush.

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.
