  1. Thanks a lot guys! Adding the gun tackles. Supricingly after you got the rythm it goes quite well!
  2. All guns in place with breeching ropes secured for sail. I think it looks interesting and different. Gun tackles will follow.
  3. Second attempt with the gun rigging. I fixed the breeching rope according to the bellow picture
  4. @Fernando E, @Gregory Thanks a lot guys! I'm trying to do my best. It is a lot of fun to build this kit!!!
  5. Full army...... It is scary big! Jig for breeching rope and ready gun for first "Sharp fit" Gun on the deck with first tackle
  6. Thanks a lot guys, also for all the likes! Much appreciated. If I could make one person interested in ship modeling through my build I'd be more than happy! Having so many followers and reactions is really great motivation. Never thought I could cought so many people by building something what many now days people think didn't exists. Happy to be here in MSW! THANKS
  7. Second anchor + anchor tackles. It still needs some final touches but first I need decide few things. Running the anchor cable through windlass... I'm convinced I have it right (same as in plans) as windlass wind the anchor up rotating anti-clockwise and pawl in the bell bitt securing the spinning other way. But when "sinking" anchor is the cable still Running through windlass and spin with it? Were both anchors operated in one go? It does not make much sense to me how it is in plans. In this setup I do not see the way how to detach cable from windlass. PLEASE HELP!! Plan
  8. While waiting a supply for gun tackles I'm working on other details. Today anchor. Again I used brass tape Iron belts. It is Just temporary fited to the deck nothing is glued.

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.
