  1. And more mast detailing. Today I made the cleats. I used @Chuck ones and again thankful for him providing us all these little helpful addons πŸ™‚ The cleats needs to have the angle of the deck. Second coat of Oil for the mast. On deck cheers, Dirk
  2. Chuck do you have kinda excel table what to use for what to get? Dirk
  3. Trying to get all the Gutermann atm (2899 what I like more is hard to find) ... haha ..thanks Chuck! πŸ™‚ Dirk
  4. Thanks Chuck, Tony, Chris, Jason and the likes πŸ™‚ More progress on the mast. Small parts done with boxwood and pinned with 0.3mm brass rod. Nothing is glued yet except the crosstree to avoid any trouble with the rigging πŸ™‚ cheers, Dirk
  5. Thanks Tony! I'll go with Topmast aft as on the Hawke, the Alert and on the Marquardt Drawing. I will see where it will lead me though ... haha.
  6. It's a while ... hahah. Now that I am almost finish with Maria I decided to go on with the little cutter here before I start another one with Master Korabels AVOS πŸ™‚ The Sherbourne is an older cutter with a correspondingly older rigging and topmast behind the mast. I was and still am very torn which way I should go. I got great help and information from Tony and Gregor. Thanks again for that. In fact it is not easy to find good information about the old rigging. Petterson's book refers to the rather new rigging, the Alert basically to the old one but with a more elaborate rigging owed to the bigger ship. There is probably no such beautiful 1:1 instruction. Also the measurements are "difficult", the plans of the Sherbourne are non-uniform and basically crap with the super simplified rigging. Marquardt's book also shows the older rig but also for a bigger cutter. Well, I'm going to tinker with that now. Based on the Alert, taking Chuck's Cherful plans as a further orientation, I'm going to get a feel for it and hope to get a reasonably correct rig. So first I needed to made dowels of pear. From square to octagonal to round. After the Mainmast was mostly build I had to turn the Topmast. cheers, Dirk

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 β€œAdvance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.ο»Ώο»Ώ

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.
