  1. I didn't think you posted it but is the lower deck planked in walnut ?
  2. Thanks for the likes. Scott, just used a spray starch and iron before sewing the edges.
  3. Finished up installing the jibs. Going to work on the foremast shrouds and ratlines now before installing the main sails,
  4. Finished installing the Topgallant and Topmast Staysails. Also finished installing the upper ratlines on the main mast. Going to start working on the 3 jibs now. Thanks for all the positive comments. Really appreciate it.
  5. Tom, are you using the copper that came with the ship kit? Looks really good. Carl
  6. I finished the main mast lower ratlines. Got a little crooked for the first time doing these but overall I'm pleased. Working on the center sail now. Have the staysail partially installed. Next is the topgallant and topmast staysail.
  7. In my book on rigging by Petersson they show a similar setup but it ties off at the deck, not to itself which makes more sense rather than having to climb up and untie it.
  8. Finished up the mainsail lower shrouds and working on the ratlines now.
  9. Working on rigging the deadeyes now. Thought it made sense to rig the lower portion then I could lastly seize the lower portion around the upper deadeye. Hope that makes sense.

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.
