  1. Many thanks... A little progress... Some home made blocks... To Leash the stunsail booms to the yards I chose the shear lashing knot... 🙂
  2. Continuation on stunsail boom irons... Soldering with Cyanoacrylate... 😀
  3. Work on stunsail boom irons... A copper strip is used. Rounded and glued... The small gap between edges is filled with CA and sanded. Will be painted matte black... Yard irons and stunsail irons will be glued to each other with a brass stick also painted matte black...
  4. Hi John, My opinion is that the direction of the wood block may not be correct. Should rotate 180 degrees...
  5. Unfortunately I've just come to realize the great work you've done. Now I have to examine thoroughly from the beginning... Fabulous...
  6. Many thanks Allan, Scott, Kevin and Jim, After your guidance and the information from you I learnt the name stun sail... I learnt also the purpose of this mechanism...
  7. I am in doubt about the position of the reinforcements of the yards. From the plans of the kit it seems they are conjoined to the yards. But from some sources they are separated from the yards at the edges. I want to learn which one is correct.
  8. Thank you Michael, Hamilton, Mark for your kind words and for the visits and likes...
  9. All rigging work and blocks on the masts finished... And lathing the yards...
  10. Hi Jason, Thank you for your visit and kindness... In fact nowadays I started to lathe the yards... Ratlines and other rigging works on the masts have finished. 🙂
  11. This is an assumption: After having a minimum depth enough to fit the foot, aligning the outer edges of all steps (for ergonomics) should be a very ordinary and simple task for men who think about the location and usefulness of every rope, every nail etc and finally produce an enormous and functional piece of work. Maybe it is me who take care unnecessarily too much of the comfort of the sailors of those times... 😁

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.
