  1. Here they are: specially designed gun barrels, anchors, top of belfry, windlass , complete bow decoration, transom and side badges... Here is new technique applied, a MarisStella innovation: Transom and side badges are to be planked with thin wooden strips so they look wooden in the end ... When talking about innovations, MarisStella has 8 innovations connected to the techniques of constructing the models and all of them are very well accepted (received). They are applied at MarisStella Model Ship Kit product line ... Hope this was helpful...
  2. Hello modelers.... Yes, you are right! Here is not said anything about materials used into the kit.... Materials are classics from MarisStella: we always take care of using first class wood, fittings and ropes... The images are rendered cad drawings. This is because the main thought was to emphasize the severity of the creation of this project. The main stream is MarisStella projects' work and Reconstruction done by The Art of Age of Sail. We have many very accurate drawings that make all 4 sheets of draft together. These sheets are 900x100mm large. The quality of the project is put onto first place here taking on mind that the way of realization of MarisStella kits is not unknown ... Laser cut panels, here are 15 of them, are very good, usually done. Large photo-etched sheet as well... The point is to create accurate reconstruction, elements and drawings that are promising a really good made model in the end. Here I post photographs of the model. It is completely wooden... The kit includes 28 3D printed elements. They are, for example, anchors or guns designed especially for this model. ... Here is a surprise about the transom: 3D printed elements become wooden in the end ... Height of the model is 61,1cm ...
  3. Merry Christmas Jack !! Merry Christmas to everyone ! With best wishes, Zoran
  4. Congratulations Mr. Mike. The model turned out well, as it is told before... Thanks for the patience at some of the sequences... I hope it worth in the end... Bravo ! Regards, Zoran
  5. Hah good ! ... ok, I will try to explain: The drawing shows double turn knot at the rope that holds the yard (twice around the yard) this rope go upwards through the block and then down to the cleat at the mast... The thinner rope is the parrel. It tightens the first rope to the mast . The parrel rope goes to the same cleat to the mast...(this makes two different ropes) ... The parrel rope goes down to the cleat, not through the block ... So, my intention was to get You to understand the illustrations , but it is not hard to answer as well By the way, I see You understood the illustrations, but with a bit of uncertainty (I hope I used the right word) ... It is really pleasure to see You completed this model ... You get experience in single planking method and the sail making which is very important... In the end, the patient is invested and the result is here !! Ask all You need ... Sincerely Yours, Zoran
  6. Hi Mr. Mike, as it can be visible at the attached illustrations, all of those places are marked with ' A', 'B', 'C', 'D', 'E', 'F' etc. ... And all of those are enlarged into the drawings, so please, take a look at the drawing ... All of the questions are answered already... Regards, Zoran
  7. Hi Mr. Mike... there are separated ropers for fastening the sail to the yard: each hole on the sail - one rope ... Each rope is fastened around the yard, the knot is on the top of the yard... the ends of the rope fall free down the sail ... The knots are the simple overheand double knots ... Zoran
  8. Hi Mr. Mike ... are You sure this nettle is the same long as the ones at the drawing ? ... The sail could be shorten by banding the nettles around the yard. The yard with the shorten sail could be put in many positions, but the most common one is to put the yard into the same position as the ful sail is on ... The sail could be furled, so the complete sail is bound to the yard with the nettles. The nettle should be long enough ... The sail looks great, Bravo !! Regards, Zoran
  9. I picked it up from the internet, so they are not to print or share actually... I used them to realize the nettles completely years ago ... So they are helpfull at this moment as well ... :):) we should not take somebody else's pictures, but it was handy at this moment ... I am sure You can make the same ones ... Regards, Zoran
  10. Bravo Mr. Mike ! You see, it was not so hard to do ... We never ask too much from the modeler :):) but it is not too easy as well ... Bravo once again ... Regards, Zoran
  11. It is fold , fold, and then sew... Those ropes are called 'nettles' ... each of them is a single rope going through the sail ... There are two ways of setting them ... here are the pictures:
  12. Yes, it should continue... The edge of the sail is to be fold once, and then the second time (so simple)... The stitching is all the trouble, but it is very easy to master (at once I would say) ... Zoran
  13. Hi Mr. Jack ... this deck looks brilliant! The last three photos look much better ... Zoran
  14. Hi Mr. Mike ... one end of the rope that runs through the block is attached to the yard and the other one is tied to the bitt at the mast... Then there is a parral made of rope. It is just a simple loop thet tightens the rope from the yard to the mast. This way the yard is tightened to the mast ... ... Waiting for more ... this is ok !! Zoran

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.
