  1. Thanks Jim. Next are the mast bitts. It is time consuming due to the sending off the char and processing the head and sheaves. It is very small so fun work. 2 already prepared, 2 more to go.
  2. Boat davits. I'm leaving them in pear wood instead of black colour. I like it more in natural wood. I'm going to simulate the iron bands at the end of each davit once I receive Copper tape. Simulation with a yawl And in its full (almost) lenght
  3. Thanks a lot for all likes and kind comments. Love it! @Katoom and @Dubz thank you for your opinion, I share the same one as well. I took other 2 or 20 looks at it and black goes much better with other details. I try to avoid the brass fittings which is the next reason for black 👍
  4. Back in the workshop with some small progress. I have added another pair of the secure rings @DPK's advice. Thanks again. I have finish few final touches on the windlass and secured it on the deck. I have experimented with the belaying pins. Luckily There are few spare so I could blacken one to se how it looks on the ship. Still not sure what I will use, if clean brass or black (leaning little bit more for black version). Here is the comparison. What do you think??
  5. Perfect, thanks a lot @DPK I will do 2 more rings and go with ladders👍
  6. Thanks man, that is what I thought. Similar case would be with inner bulwarks planking.
  7. Preparation of the route for anchor cable. @DPK @greenstone can I ask you guys for advice? There are two pre-drilled holes in the deck forward to the bow from the bell in the same line with other rings for securing the cable. I guess There should be another pair of rings? But it is not in instructions so I do not know if I can use 2 more photo etched parts #18 (are there some spare or the count is exactly for the model?) or should I produce my own? Thanks a lot!
  8. Ohh god, I feel so bad now (I scrolled Down this thread) and see the stage where I stopped. But I really needed rest from rigging. Unfortunately/fortunately AVOS cought me so deeply that I can't go back to RC right now BUT I PROMISE I'm GOING TO FINISH THIS PROJECT!! please Just be patient. Thanks to all followers and all who likes what I am doing. In case you would like to see the ship I'm working on right now..... It is a lovely kit. So much fun building it! PetaV
  9. Thank you Greenstone. It is my personal choice.I found it distracting leave it in brass when all other irons are black. I do not like colourfull models so that is the reason. Not sure what I do with belaying pins🤔
  10. Windlas part2. Everything went fine to this stage. Time consuming as there are lot of pieces but smooth process. Until this small detail came. It is so tiny and will be made from 10pieces. Nice test for the nerves
  11. Windlas assembly. It has pretty complex shape but it is cut to "hundereds" small pieces that creates all the details which makes the assembly much more friendly then carve it from one piece of wood.

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.
