  1. Exactly, the thick cable is served with thin thread. I build a machine from lego for this purpose. Through gears it turns with thick cable around and thin thread is laid on it.
  2. Btw I had a really Hard Times to create headrails. I postponed it to the very end of the build because I do not know how to..... Are there any good tips how to start? The kit and plans are way off So I do not have any reference.
  3. This is my sample of homemade ropes. Various width and colors. I'm using various Gutermann 100% polyester threads (shown in table) and I decided color black (000) for standing rigging and color (868) for running rigging.
  4. Hi, not many on the hull. I Made whole new gun cariages, more belaing points on the decks and ports. From deck above, all is done from scratch. Masts, heads, all the rigging etc. All this was very simplified in the kit.
  5. Hi, I'm re-posting my building log from a long time ago. My building log was lost during some server migration and as I did not progress with a build I haven't Re-post until now. The start of the build was perhaps 10-12 years ago. I build almost complete hull within 2 years (most of the work was from the box). When the hull was nearly finished I got the Conway's Anatomy of the ship plans and I started with some modifications. Unfortunately I do not have photos from that period anymore. Than I got long brake (first job, next Jobs, childerns etc.). Few months ago I started again. To do are mast, rigging, sails and some little rest on the hull. Now I try to follow the new plans as much as possible. I started with bowsprit and fore lower mast and standing rigging. Current status is on pics.

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.
