Royal Caroline by Mile Bijelić - Scale 1: 35, 1749

Recommended Posts

Hi Bruno,


I am not sure if I understand your question. .. but I will try to answer.


Mile did finish a second Jadran (marine school ship of former Yugoslavia) in the meantime. He worked last 1.5 years on it and that is why Royal Caroline has a relatively slow progress. Otherwise, Mile is extremely fast... I always get frustrated how slow I am, when I see his progress  :-)

... but maybe we post some photos of Jadran into the forum.


The next, we are looking for the plans of the Royal James 1671 – not easy to find these plans at all. Mile is going to do the Royal James after the Royal Caroline, in a bigger scale – probably 1:48 – and he will do it as an admiralty model. This will be something to report!!!   … a huge model with extreme precision and impression of reality which I am used to see when Mile is doing things. I am looking forward a lot to this project.

Your work is that of the God's. I just wish that I could see your work in person.I just wish that you would shrink them down to 1/48 scale and make resin castings of them for sale. I have a 1/48 one that needs carvings like yours. I like others who have skills that do not include the outstanding carving skills of yours have to settle for the Pan Art brass castings that look like blob's and bad ones at that to decorate our hulls.


I just wish someone like you would help us mortals out by selling resin cast copies of carvings for thsi ship model like those you have created. My hat's off to your mastery of carving and building.

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.
