  1. Starting to work on the second mast, le tape-cul.
  2. Now that the Krabbenkutter is done. It is time to get back to my Thonier. I missed her dearly. I have been working on the main Mast. My goal is still to continue adding more details and follow as much as possible the historic plans. Here is what I have done and where I am
  3. Not a problem. Thank you for the notes of encouragement and suggestions. Your build log was a great source of inspiration.
  4. Finished. 🤔 I think... 🤣 Oh yes... I am ready to move to another project. Here are some shots.
  5. Last minute enhancement. Remove the plastic buoys from the ship. Cut off the fake roping and redid with real rope. Mounted back on the ship
  6. This is just some replacement parts since some were missing from the kit when I received it. Do you have any suggestions on how and where to rig the anchor?
  7. Time to attach the buoy line. As I was preparing the dry fitting of the nets to the ship. I discovered that I made a mistake. The poles hold the nets were poining forward instead of back. This was making the nets been off-centered. I had to remove them and rigging them again. Not too bad, just a bit nerves racking.... 😥 Here is an example of the dry fitted net. 😊
  8. Continuation of the rigging for the nets.thenets were a little shorter than the holder y about 2.5cm so I used chains to attach them. I painted the buoys for the nets
  9. Very nice build. You are making some great progress. I have the kit on the shelf on hold. Are you going to do the full mast with its rigging?

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
