  1. got this in my stash and will be starting her if and when i get my victory finished πŸ˜‹
  2. ty jeff- welcome to the partyπŸ˜‹. will be starting her again after having a break for a few months! keith
  3. certainly captures the feel of an underwater seascape- and focus will be attracted to the wreck as well so no need for uber detail on seabed i suppose
  4. looks good so far- looks like there might be some nice 'tween decks detail to be added judging by the open frames? Keith
  5. Hi again all, got the fore shrouds rigged- also got blocks/ deadeyes/ thimbles on the main breast/ backstays attatched. Thanks for looking in everyone. Keith
  6. will look a lot better with the change in the direction of the plates. Keith
  7. looking good- as regards the boom- on all fishing boats i have seen there is normally a boom rest on the wheelhouse roof (i added this to my norden) for the boom to rest on. My dad worked on danish seiners and says the topping lift was hauled till the boom was clear, the sail set, then the boom was dropped back into the rest tightening the sail. The sails were to stop the boat rolling too much and damaging the fishing gear. The seiners were anchored in place while fishing. Keith
  8. Looks great - well done Boyd- how long did it take to stop smiling after the last bit went in? Keith
  9. looking good Boyd- looking at the bow photos reminds me i need to start thinkong about rigging the bowsprit on mine! Keith
  10. Ty Boyd- i have always had an interest in ships and memorised all the names for various bits n bobs! Must admit in the middle of all this was thinking maybe Boyd has the right idea Keith
  11. Thanks all for the views/ comments as always- rigged the main topmast ratlines, breast stays, backstays, and travelling backstays (though wont be rigged to the channels til most of the running rigging is in place). Also finished rigging the main topmast stay/ preventer stay, and made a start on the snaking on the mainstay/ preventer stay. have fun all and keep up the good work everyone. Keith

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
