  1. Thank you Yves. I'm glad you guys like it! Progressing further..... Topsail yard and topsail secured in place......... Jib topsail installed......... 2nd round of cleaning the deck (finaly after long timeis my deck without ropes) Here are some details of "busy" belaying points: And the overview I pimp a little my photo area
  2. Hi Dirk, you've made a wonderful model. Congratulations 🍻 Looking forward to your next project! PetaV
  3. I was cleaning up the deck and securing the position of the spreadsail yard. I thought it would be Quick and easy task but I had hard times to secure the correct position of the yard. Also attaching ropes to the belaying pins is pretty difficult as the deck is quite full.
  4. Working on the topsail. I have attached the sail to the yard and added al the ropes Next I put the assembly on the ship and run the ropes through all the blocks Next step woul be set the yards to correct position and fix the running rigging on the deck
  5. Satnding rigging is now finished. Time to prepare last 2 sails. Bolt rope added to both of them. Now jump to attach topsail to the yard.
  6. Small progress..... Second pair of topmast shrouds ready. Topmast backstays next.
  7. @american I'm So glad to hear it! 🥳 Good luck with it and let us see your build.
  8. Greetings in the new year friends! I did not touch AVOS over the Xmas eve. My 3 childern kept me busy enough but had a great time with family! So the only update would be....... New replacement sail has arrived from MK (thanks a lot), I have managed to remove the Bolt rope so sail is ready to be rigged. Happy New Year to ALL of you and let's finish AVOS!!!
  9. @Dutchman first of all thaks a lot! Second, for me this was not an option anymore! I have/had a picture before my eyes how it should look like and it is with spread sails. I will be adding ti it the finish that it is full wind. And furl the top sail will not work. Building this kit was so much fun so far and the treat what MK gave me was exceptional! Best kit!!
  10. Hi Chuck, You are doing incredible job, what ever you do. I would love to start with your Cheerful project (and then turn to this gem) but how is the shipping to europe pleasee? Thanks Petr
  11. Thank you all! Party time! 🍻 The shrouds on the second side are equiped with ratlines finally. I'm So glad this nightmare is over

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.
