  1. Hi wefalck; The problem is how to know the approach during 1600's... Were there only squares (equals on the timbers and the spaces) or rectangles? And IMO the gratings have to provide to walk safely on it and to pass the light to the lower deck. Precision balance...
  2. Thank you for the answers. The gratings in the photo have 0.039" (1mm) as timber thickness and 0.118" (3mm) as the space between the timbers. Ratio is 1 for timber, 3 for the space. At 1/40 scale that space corresponds 56,69" (12cm). It's too large to walk on it without getting stuck. And it seems to me that the ratio of 3 timber's thickness = 1 space can be incorrect whatever is the era. (Am I wrong?) Is it possible at the end of 1600's that was the correct ratio?
  3. I think kit supply gratings are not correct in size, scale and ratio. What should be the thickness of the wooden part and the size of the hole on the gratings in the real world for a period ship? What is the ratio to each other? Are there any changes during centuries? (esp. for a ship scale 1/40 year 1600-1700) I don't think that is regular, it's impossible to walk on it...

    Actually, I wanted to express the final appearance of the shrouds that the rules of physics obliged more than the working principle of all that rigging system as wefalck says at his last topic; "Given their size and weight, it would be impossible to put so much tension on them that they were completely straight. There is always a slight catenary in them."
  5. Rat line tension tool

    IMO, A thick rope has heavy weight and that weight causes the shroud to hang due to gravity. The problem is at the first shroud (the closest to the mast). It must also have a sag but as same direction of the farthermost shroud (not like a hour glass). Actually full straight shrouds lines are not realistic. And ratlines also have to sag due to gravity and after many usage from the crew...

    Thank you very much for your kindness... Very nice build, congratulation...

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.
