Hope to get back to this build soon. Again thanks for still being interested in following, looking in - etc.... Cheers,

  5. EJ_ Just catching up - have been away for a month + (a new employment situation got in the way) Back to a routine now - so will have more time in the evenings to stay current as well -- As usual your work is getting so amazing indeed. This build will become iconic in your collection. Your planned addition of sails will really make it beyond superb. PS: Thanks for your note regarding the rope coils very kind of you. We certainly learn and become better builders by emulating techniques from each other. My skills have only been helped by also discovering from others, including you as well. Cheers,
  6. Nice Frank - I also have that Proxxon lathe - really like it. Let us know what you think of those chisels. I need new ones - I bought some super cheap one on Amazon - real junk Cheers,
  7. Interesting idea very clever thinking on your part indeed
  8. Ulises Just catching up - looking excellent indeed and agreed your work with the ropes is so good. Regards,
  9. federicoaa, It's actually very easy. Using painter’s trim tape coil the rope. Add a film of CA Gel This will “lock” the spooled coil. And the gel will not bleed through to what will serve as the topside of the coil. I then used small beads of Gorilla wood glue to secure the coil in place on the deck. Here are so photos from my previous build log (just added the comments)
  10. My understanding is that also the king demanded a third gun deck. This resulted in the lower gun deck being much closer to the waterline, and of course made the ship top heavy. For the launch it was determined that just enough ballast would be added for the royal review, and later she would be more accurately ballasted. The wind did the rest when lower gun deck openings ingested too much water. Also according to my conversation with Dr. Fred Hocker when I visited the Museum in Feb 018 - he said that the hodgepodge of guns was because the navy had a very low inventory of available guns and used whatever sort armaments happened to be available at the time. Dr. Hocker was kind enough to spend about an hour with me, as well as taking me back into the research department - Amazing indeed. They are still excavating in the area of the wreck, and are still finding many items that have not yet been displayed for viewing. I had initially visited the museum in the mid 90s - found this resent visit to have greatly added to my visits' experience.
  11. Noted, Thanks just removed - apologies to MSW members. NIrvana you could delete your notations as well then all will just disappear.
  12. Denis, Just catching up with your Cinderella stairs Freaking awesome !!

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.
