  1. Hi Pete! Yes, I use bamboo for masts and spars in almost all my projects, with a few exceptions. They're just bamboo toothpicks. I treat them with sandpaper using a borax machine. But you can't overheat the bamboo. I usually print an electronic drawing in the size I need. I use a steel medical needle to make these parts
  2. Many thanks. GrandpaPhil, Pete and Mark! That's my third slipway. This device really makes the job easier. Such small and short projects are sometimes necessary for me to distract myself and test some new technologies. Beat Regards! Igor.
  3. Then I placed the bottle on another slipway, pulled out all the gear of the standing and running rigging, fixed their CA, cut off the ends and set the flag in the stern.
  4. Then I took the model off the slipway and stuffed it all into a bottle, applying some silicone sealant to the bottom of the bottle beforehand. I placed the boat's hull diagonally and left it to dry.
  5. I made thinner rigging yarns, made new stay ropes, finished the running rigging, added the tiller, the flag on the bowsprit, painted the underwater part with copper and reassembled the whole structure on the slipway
  6. I put a model on the slipway and... I decided that there would be no deadeyes in this this time...

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.
