The Day of the Black Sea Fleet (or the Day of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy, the Birthday of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy) is a Russian holiday celebrated annually on May 13 in honor of the creation of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy.A festive salvo. Upper deck guns. I also finish hitting the nails in the underwater part of the hull. For a change, I make mars platforms.

Это действительно много гвоздей !!!
Какой размер у этих ногтей? А где ты их покупал?
Некоторые участники ищут источник гвоздей небольшого размера ..... поэтому вопрос
Уве, привет. В России ногти обычно делают сами. Накатка тупого ножа на модельном коврике из нужной проволоки. Это не быстрый процесс, но он того стоит.

Uwe hi. In Russia, nails are usually done by themselves. Rolling a blunt knife on a model rug made of the desired wire. It's not a quick process, but it's worth it.

Uwe, Alexander is right. I don't roll nails. I take the wire of the desired diameter. I bite into pieces of 3-5 mm. Then I pinch the tip with thin mini pliers. With a small file, I grind off the top to get a smooth, flat cap at the nail.

Hi Mr.Deep, I use this exact method on my Le Coureur. Works flawlessly. Your nail work looks very good.
