  1. B.E. these two contemporary drawings might hepfull. Some of the very rare original sources of this "older "rig. Source: NMM
  2. I would think it is wrong, as the AVOS was a civilian boat. Dirk
  3. It's not hard to explain B.E., even the cutter state 1763 (I don't think so ...) it has already (or because the cutter is younger) the "newer" rig (topmast fore, just 2 yards). Check the following image. Edit: This all depends on whether my basic theory is correct πŸ™‚
  4. Hej B.E., I had in mind that this rig is kind special and for just a very short period used. Steel might more describe the "newer" rig (at least that is what I guess) with just the square sail yard as "problem", this in mind I opted for foremost shrouds to be served as there is the spread yard too. Absolutly my concerns too. I din't understood eitherπŸ™‚ cheers Dirk
  5. Hej B.E. I can just strongly suggest to deconstruct crosstree AND the cheeks (I had the same problem with the cheeks), it will make life way easier. I also suggest redoing the hoop style rigging stop as it is way to close to the beginning of the cheeks. I have almost double the distance, made no pendants and got in space trouble ... there is a lot of standing rigging to put there. Dirk
  6. Thanks for all your comments πŸ™‚ I really appreciate it and I wish I could express that much better in english ... Thanks for that πŸ™‚ I don't build the Acryl Case by myself, sorry, I buy them for a good price. The joints are mitred. cheers Dirk
  7. Thanks so much for your kind comments and all the likes πŸ™‚ Very much appreciated. And thanks for following this journey πŸ™‚ There are some minor things to do, e.g. rope coils ... did I already said that I hate ropecoils? But I call her officially finish now πŸ˜„ It was fun to build her even I could do it without building the kit, it's almost a scratch build ... haha ... the following picture shows the only kit parts I used ... πŸ˜„ Some pictures of her, more will be in the gallery laterz. cheers, Dirk
  8. Glasgow Museums: The Ship Models (Hardback) - Seaforth Publishing Company: Seaforth Publishing; Illustrated edition (5 Nov. 2019) Author: Emily Malcolm Kit No: ISBN-10: 1526752263, ISBN-13: 978-1526752260 Pages: 374 ISBN: 978152675752 Retail Price: Β£ 35.- Available here: https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Glasgow-Museums-The-Ship-Models-Hardback/p/16736 About This publication is the first full catalog of Glasgow Museums' internationally important collection of ship models. Almost all of the 676 models, which range from elegant cruise liners to humble Clyde puffers, and from simple half-hull design models to magnificent display models, were produced by Clyde shipyards or Glasgow-based ship owners. It is the representation of models from such a distinct geographical area, together with the quality of the models, which makes this collection so exceptional. As well as general chapters about the collection, each of the 676 models have a description and color photograph. Some of the most famous ships launched on the Clyde are represented, such as RMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Hood, as well models of historically significant vessels such as the first European passenger steamer Comet and the world's first commercial turbine-powered vessel King Edward. A stunning collection of photographs complements newly researched and in-depth chapters. The book will give readers worldwide a chance to see images of the models, a sense of the breadth and importance of the collection and a deepened understanding of the whole history of the ship. Great crisp detail shots in highest quality. Chaper Notes Conclusion Wow... What an incredible book! It is full of richly coloured beautifully crisp photographs of stunning models with great detail shots as well. It catalogues the entire collection of the Glasgow Museums Ship Models for the first time. The ship models in the collection cover an impressive range: from models depicting the "age of sail", including some amazing bone ships crafted by prisoners of the Napoleonic Wars, through all manner of vessels up to modern times. If you love ship models this is a must have! My sincere thanks go to Pen and Sword for sending this book for review here on Model Ship World. To buy, ask your favorite dealer.
  9. You should get the new one: https://www.culttvmanshop.com/Space-1999-Eagle-NEW-KIT--172-scale-from-MPCRound-2-_p_4762.html I have 3 Eagles on my build list πŸ™‚ Dirk
  10. Contemporary paintings, my eyes and the two sizes I could choose from (as I bought the flags πŸ˜‰ ) I choosed the bigger one. πŸ™‚ Dirk
  11. I don't like to call something the "best" but they are definitely more then one or two cuts above πŸ˜‰ But apart from that it is good that there is more choice nowaday. After all, it is also a question of personal taste or priority. I just like the shape of the Master Korabel blocks very much. Even if the wood looks a bit rough (which you don't notice on the model the macro images are also brutal). 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.
