  1. Pear fits perfectly for me i take it. Good planned Thomas ๐Ÿ˜ great job ! Stay safe! Dirk
  2. Thanks guys for all of your nice comments!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I was not quite so happy with my decision not to show mast hoops, it seems somehow "naked". I had made a few attempts but nothing came out that I liked and was installable with the rigging already done. A member here in the forum, @Gregory, spent his time and effort and offered to laser me mast hoops from pear and sent them to me. Free of charge, no shipping costs, nothing ... wow! This is how it can be among model building colleagues. Thanks again and again Gregoy that was a great job you did! Here is the result. cheers, Dirk
  3. Michael I am quietly reading ... I have no words ๐Ÿ™‚ Love it though! Dirk
  4. Oh in 200 years mine will look more like Hawke I am sure ๐Ÿ˜„ 0.4mm I second these guess, but not sure ๐Ÿ™‚ Dirk
  5. Just to complete this information. This is the way it is done on Hawke. I used morope btw ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. I just asked because I did not do them on Sherbourne as "they not needed without sails" but regret later - damn haha - and now plan to do exactly what you described (cut and rejoin) with the kind help (lasering the parts) of a member here ๐Ÿ™‚ Dirk
  7. Nope he is wrong. It changed from 1864 though "Regulations: Since 1864 it is officially valid: for the Marine White Ensign and Union Jack, for service vessels and for merchant vessels red Ensign and additionally the pilot's jack (No. 2033) is allowed For some yacht clubs blue Ensign or also blue Ensign with emblem of the respective club in connection with the Burgee. There are special rules for this." I would say The Roayal Caroline is before 1864 ๐Ÿ˜‰ Dirk
  8. That's indeed a major milestone. Well done B.E. looking great!! ๐Ÿ™‚ cheers Dirk
  9. B.E. these two contemporary drawings might hepfull. Some of the very rare original sources of this "older "rig. Source: NMM
  10. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. 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 either๐Ÿ™‚ 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 โ€œAdvance Ship Modeling Through Researchโ€. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.๏ปฟ๏ปฟ

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.
