  1. after a log break a bit more progress! finally got fore shrouds and t'gallant shrouds rigged- next job the ratlines. as always thanks for the replies and encouragement with the build. take care all. Keith
  2. got this in my stash and will be starting her if and when i get my victory finished 😋
  3. ty jeff- welcome to the party😋. will be starting her again after having a break for a few months! keith
  4. 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
  5. looks good so far- looks like there might be some nice 'tween decks detail to be added judging by the open frames? Keith
  6. 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
  7. will look a lot better with the change in the direction of the plates. Keith
  8. 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
  9. Looks great - well done Boyd- how long did it take to stop smiling after the last bit went in? Keith
  10. looking good Boyd- looking at the bow photos reminds me i need to start thinkong about rigging the bowsprit on mine! 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 “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.
