  1. Hi B.E. I'm familiar with your level of craftsmanship and knowledge from the days of your super work HMS Pegasus. I am sorry for the confusion. ☹ Confusing two magnificent works could be forgiven. It would be embarrassing if one was good and the other was a bad one. It's a mess, but yours is no different than the other. In those days, Bowsprit could be both in the middle and removable. To lose an extra cannon just because of the shape was strange to me...
  2. Super net, clean work BE... I don’t understand why they had not fixed the bowsprit on the middle to provide equal room on each side... 1/7 is a big ratio...
  3. Hi, Thank you Mark for your comment and for the Likes... The main process on the anchors and the buoys were finished...
  4. Hi Johann, May I learn how you tied that knot? ( I cannot see the other side) Thank you.
  5. Hi, I took a break from the boring tying ratlines and I made a trial for a buoy... Imitation of the rigging came from the last picture.
  6. Hi Michael, I had seen how to make a barrel in a Log. But I don't remember where it is. 10 pieces of wood are cut as a longitudinal triangle profile. They are assembled radially. Then they are shaped on a lathe as a barrel. The lower and upper sections of each piece of the ten are narrow and the middle abdomen is wider. Then a circular cap is fixed.
  7. @ Michael Thank you Michael, for your nice support words as usual... @ Hamilton Hi Hamilton, I'm glad to see you again my friend. You're so kind as always. Thank you for your comment and likes. As time goes by, I slow down. I wish I can finish it. When I look back I am amazed how I've done so much things. I think I couldn't do it if it were now...
  8. Hi, Dave leaded me to his topic Masthead Trucks where I found the solution and I applied it to all masts having flag. And I finished and fixed the stern flag mast... The choosen is 3 a - b
  9. Hi Dave, First of all, I'm sorry to ask again a question that has already been asked and solved... I have missed it... Being so far from terminology I don't understand many things without illustrated narrative even if I translate the typed text. Now, it is clear after the pictures in your topic. Thank you for your interest and help...
  10. I found another picture on the web. Another mechanism. Let me know your opinion on it... Any historical accuracy?

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.
