  1. I finished the first part of running rigging for masts. Now I can finish the bowsprit and rig it too ☺️ Jan
  2. Almost all yards are on their places, just topsail spritsail yard is not. I´ll hang it at last ( I broke sprit topmast twice ). I´m still continuing with running rigging. Jan
  3. Work in progress. Completing parrals and hanging of yards. Jan
  4. Thank you, friends, for your replies. Louie da fly: probably yes, if you have as a cargo some logs or planks or boards, you need a place. But if you want to know more, please ask Abhovi. I completed all the yards 😊 and start to make ribs for parrals. I also ordered 1,4 mm beads for them. And I have to produce some blocks...a lot of blocks... Jan
  5. It took me a long time ( because of different reasons ) to continue, but I´m still working on the ship. Masts and standing rigging are completed. Jan
  6. Tops and stays fixed. Now I can continue to build the next level of masts. Jan
  7. My friends... I finally found a time for continuing...and made some deadeyes and tops, so I could start with standing rigging. I hope to have more time now. Jan
  8. yancovitch: no... just masts, yards and sails....thank you. Jan
  9. michael mott: Thank you, Mike. Dear friends, the hull is finished. Now I can continue with propulsion ( it means, btw, to produce a lot of my lovely deadeyes ) Jan
  10. Thank you, friends. Chuck Seiler: the lenght of the wreck is 38,1 m. The lenght overall incude the bowsprit based on the plans is cca 47 m. Jan
  11. Thank you, friends, for your comments. Daniel Caramango: some carvings are cutted from paper, then hardened by superglue, figures are made from modurit - it is the plastic modeling mass hardening by boiling or baking. I made some parts of decoration - roman soldiers ( I hope it looks like soldiers, I´m not very good sculptor and figures are just 25 mm long ), pedestals, molding on the stern and two little carvings on the bow, catheads, gun carriages ( simple ones I glued inside the ship ) and gun barrels. Just gunports lids and the lamp are missing. Jan
  12. Omega1234: Thank you, Patrick. Anna Maria and curtains on the stern, deck and lion on the bow are added. Jan
  13. Thank you, friends Matle: very interesting hypothesis.... I made windows and started with decoration on the aft. Jan
  14. Thank you, friends. dgbot: I´m using Revell colors for plastic models. Some details are added on the deck for the running rigging. I also made and glued channels. Jan
  15. Thank you very much for your kind words The handrail is finished. You can see the result on following pictures - I´m quite satisfied. Now I have to repaint the inner part of sides by matt uncolored paint to remove traces of glue and I can continue with the equipment of the maindeck. Jan

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.
