  1. Thank you EJ and Mike! I'm sure there will be even more mistakes to hide along the way... I'm using Syren rigging line, which is the best kind I know of, thanks Chuck.
  2. I have turned the spars using an electric drill and sandpaper, and I think they have turned out decently. I actually broke one, and had to fix it. Can you spot the repair? I've also begun rigging the cannons, which I'm doing off of the model before fixing them on. Until next time,
  3. A little early perhaps, but just curious, will she be rigged? Nice start JP, I hope to keep up
  4. Looks nice Bob! I've seen this black monofilament line idea around, it looks good. Where do you get yours?
  5. Looking good Patrick! That is an interesting question concerning that drawing. And that's both really lucky and really unlucky about your bowsprit.
  6. Thank you very much Mike, that's exactly how I felt when I had to start planking. And I hope that's not how it will be when I start rigging, but I'm not entirely sure...
  7. Thanks guys! I'm thinking more and more that 3/16th would work out pretty well. As to the pictures, Dave, I wish I could take credit for them, but those are actually Landlubber Mike's photos from when he visited the exhibit.

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.
