Nah... no "humour" here in the States.  OTOH, we have "humor"...    I know... hat and coat..  coat_32.png.205908c26e9e2c84a0ce03b80f108512.png

One of my ancestors was transported to Australia for Bigamy, I reckon he would have been relieved. 

One of mine was also sent to Australia from Clonmel Ireland for being a political insurgent but escaped in 1791 from Botany Bay with William & Mary Bryant after stealing the governor's 6-oar cutter, sailing 3,250 miles to Timor.

So I do t know how I’m going to pull it off yet, but I’ve bought quite a few sets of these 1/700 blocks for the rigging. 

 

I lived in Timor for 6 months in 2001/02, some of it would not have changed since the 1800’s.

Have an LOL for your LOL.  :P    I'm just lazy sometimes.

And you've spent enough time in the military to be indoctrinated (should I say brainwashed?) into the use of acronyms. We had an acronym for almost everything, and that's no joke.

I am almost certain that somewhere in military usage there is an acronym for acronym!

TLAs, FLAs etc   (Three Letter Acronyms, Four Letter Acronyms ...)  :)    When we went to a particular deployment back in the early 90s, one of the first things handed over by the USN was a book of Acronyms (A4 paper, double sided and over 2 inches thick!)

 

cheers

After 9-11-2001, the US saw the need to implement COOP (continuity of operations) and COG (continuity of government) plans across the entire united states. Every state and local government organization are required to have up to date and current COOP-COG plans in place and to have personnel who are trained and qualified to run (ICS) incident command system structure/systems. Part of the US government's overarching plans include an acronym "bible" which every local and state government must utilize to ensure we all speak the same language and can understand one another.

Geeze I wish. I’ve got a lot on this month. I’ve got to put the ringols on first anyways. There is a lot of extra detail to put on this one even with the aftermarket.

Canute shows just how much detail there is, so additionally I’ll do individual stanchions, (the Tamiya metal set will be fine as it’s got two railings, there is a ship’s bell on the forward funnel, and lots of little bits and pieces that be used to enhance it. A lot from spares but it needs a large amount of rigging blocks. 

 

I photocopied the drilling template so when I stuff it up or pour something on it I have an emergency.

It's fun watching you guys tackle this ship with all the upgrade parts. To be honest, it looks rather intimidating at 1:350 scale. This could be a very long term build if I was the one doing it. The rigging for the torpedo nets looks particularly daunting.

So, using the template from the instructions, I’ve drilled the holes for the torpedo net booms. 

 

2 things, the scale in the instructions are out. Regardless you’ll have to use them as the torpedo nets will be the same scale. 

 

The port side side template is also different to the kits placement of the hull cannons and alignment. 

 

Finally, the rubbish carbide .3mm drill bits will not cut into plastic as apparently they are for cleaning printer nozzles. I need to find a decent source.

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.
