  1. Hello, thanks for your feedback and "Likes", I appreciate your support a lot. Currently I am producing the Gaff and the Boom for the Corvette. There were many interesting details to clarify. So z. B. is located on the Gaff peak a small metal block for the national flag. What is still to be clarified is the design of the Gaff googsenecks the boom.

  2. Hi Daniel, that looks extremely good. Super performance.
  3. Hello, thanks for the positive comments and the others for the LIKES. The buoys for the anchors are made. Here is a picture with all buoys.
  4. Hallo Ferit, sorry, wrong translated. Is not called thread but fathom (= 1.8 m or six English feet).
  5. Fantastic work!
  6. Hello, thanks for the nice comments, and also for the LIKES. An anchor buoy has been completed in the meantime. I put the buoy rope around the arm of the anchor and tied it to the anchor shaft twice.The size of the buoy rope is one-third of the cable. The length varies, for it is shortened or lengthened according to the depth of the water in which you will drop the anchor. Usually the buoy rope was at least 18 threads long.
  7. Hi Patrick, very clean and admirably beautiful work. I am excited which way it will continue.
  8. Hello Thomas, recognized correctly, these are thin brass strips. This I cut with the table saw of a brass sheet is 0.25 mm thick. After the provisional adjustment of the ring diameter (slightly smaller than necessary), the two ends are brazed with silver solder. For this I form the ring so that the obliquely filed ends touch on pressure. I hope I have explained it somewhat understandable with my poor English and using the Google translation. For safety, the following drawing:
  9. Thank you for your comments and LIKES, dear friends! When making the hoops for the buoys, I used a small goldsmith anvil. The ropes of the slings were served. To serve the ropes I use a little wonder tool from our member Robert @Tarjack. In addition, more information: LINK

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.
