  1. The swinging arm I was referring to, but maybe just one was enough to hang the pots from
  2. That looks awesome but needs one on the other side or it doesn't really work for anything, needs two to make a spit Hth Regards Paul
  3. Hi there is no part number because you have to form the piece from 1/32 brass rod as per the photo, bend the ends over and insert into predrilled holes in the position shown, job done, a little ca should hold it in well enough, the block to be attached would have either an eye or a hook to move along the traveller as frankie says above which you could fit now or when rigging Hth regards Paul
  4. So sad, but why would anyone look at the Chinese knock offs at twice the price of the real thing in many cases, not sure I get it!!!
  5. I have all of the above tools you have shown, they rarely get used to be honest, plus a Proxxon mill now, this is the tool I use most, can't beat it in my opinion. Useful for everything once you get used to it Proxxon bs/e belt sander Regards Paul
  6. Bit of a milestone I think after all these years, caprail going on the quarterdeck and last quarterdeck cannon finished
  7. Stay strong mark, you can do it and licorne will be patiently waiting to come out of ordinary Best regards Paul
  8. Two carronades completed, I made some slightly thinner rope for the breeching Not sure how to display run in with breeching rope frapped up over the barrel as per the one on the right or run out on the left
  9. I showed the wife the silver eyebolts and she said the same as you @Dowmer , 'why would you do that' except she added a bit more 'why haven't you made me some earrings if you've got silver' lol
  10. Hi Dowmer, I used the silver because it is as hard as brass and hopefully will tarnish to a nice dark colour eventually, I hope, also adds a bit of interest 😁

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.
