  1. Still limping along with Granado.  I'm about to step the masts.  The manual says to first "temporarily drill and pin the yards in place on the masts".  The yards are then removed until later.  Question:  what is the point of the drilling and pinning since it doesn't seem to relate to the later attachment of the yards?  Can it be safely omitted or will I regret it if I don't do it?

      I have no idea why it would say that. You can certainly omit it. I would however drill the necessary holes for pinning them in advance. It will be much easier to do that before stepping them.

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
