  1. Hi Thank you Lawrence just about to go up to the ship yard and hopefully finish the ratlines tonight.
  2. Hi Just a weekly update almost done the ratlines,Getting bored with doing knots. Looking forward to doing the stays.
  3. Hi Doing the ratlines, taken over a week so far because I have got to this stage before, with 0.25mm rope but it was too thick and looked awful. So I ripped it all off and started again with 0.10mm I think it look much better. Still a long way to go but getting there.
  4. Thank you for your kind words Lawrence much appreciated.
  5. Great build on the Bounty by both of you, Hope things gets back to normal soon.
  6. HI I was going to post some pictures of the ratlines as I have just started doing them, But found a a good photo effect on my phone called elements and this one is called fog so I thought I would post this instead.
  7. Hi Managed to do some work on the bow rigging Also done the serving on the backstays and fitted ready, can't do any more until I do the ratlines waiting for a delivery of rope hopefully any day now.
  8. Hi Have a look at this The Marine Art of Geoff Hunt: Master Painter of the Naval World of Nelsonhttp://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Marine-Art-Geoff-Hunt/dp/1844860809
  9. Hi have a look at this 3M 471 Blue Fine Line Vinyl Masking Tapehttp://www.amazon.co.uk/Fine-Vinyl-Masking-Painting-Residue/dp/B00CUPL8BI
  10. Hi What masking tape are you using have you tried an anti bleed masking tape. just a quick thought
  11. Hi Kevin I gave up on my plans a long time ago I use The anatomy of Nelson's ships and google
  12. Hi J The netting came from one of my daughters old party dresses (when you are a ship builder always on the look out for things to use) Painted it on a piece of glass with clear mat varnish to stiffen it when dried cut to size and stuck it on with varnish and the rope hope this helps
  13. Looking really good Kevin But slow down because I can't keep up, Getting confused on the bowsprit rigging also.
  14. Hi Taken a long time but finally back to where I was before I cut off some of the rigging to start again. Glad I did looking much better and a lot cleaner. Also took the time to redo the netting on the bow

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.
