  1. Block size calculations

    So, based on the above formula, if I am using Chucks blocks and ropes I can multiply the rope diameter by 8 and go with the closest available block. For instance if I have a scale rope that is 0.025"D multiplying that by 8 gives me 0.20." my closest choices are 3/16" and 1/4." 1/4" would be easier to rig but 3/16" would probably look better if I have understand this correctly.

  5. This looks like fun. I almost feel guilty taking a front row seat with as little time available as I have. But, there seems to be plenty of room. Sam

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.
