  1. It's just my personal recommendation. And yes you could upload bigger ones ๐Ÿ˜‰ Edit: I checked and adjusted some settings: Maximum image dimensions to save: 2048 ร— 1536 px Maximum image dimensions to display: 1440 x 1080 px Dirk
  2. Image resolution should be around 1280px minimum, max 2048. There are FOUR ways to upload and positioning an image. 1) Use "choose Files" and select you files to upload. After that you have add them to your content as Mark wrote. 2) Drag and drop them to the drop area. After that you have add them to your content as Mark wrote. 3) Drag and drop them directly to the cursor position in your content area. 4) Copy and Paste Image directly from an image processor applicatiun to cursor position. I prefer 3 & 4 though ๐Ÿ™‚ cheers Dirk
  3. According to this calculation I made another, higher, Topgallant mast with a common pole head. Comparison old and new Topgallant mast. cheers, Dirk
  4. I think I would still prefer the metal one (as addition). Even the production is not that perfect it is easier to alter then wood. Just my 2cent ๐Ÿ™‚ Dirk
  5. How to calculate the length of the "common Pole Head" (Source: Schrage): Hypothesis: The given length of 7,11 meters for the topgallant mast is excluded the pole head as there are three different types of pole heads which can and will be calculated. (Length of topgallant x 0,388) So full length of this spar should be: (Length of topgallant x 0,388) + Length of topgallant (7,11 meter x 0,388) + 7,11 = 9,87 meters That seems a reasonable length for a cutters topmast(?). What do you think? Dirk

  7. Thanks Gregory now I as I know I can read it at Steels drawing too .. hehe ๐Ÿ™‚
  8. Thanks David, every bit is helpful. Should have read the "8" and not the "0" there, so recalculating .. hmpf. As there is a Topgallant Mast mentioned I don't think it was one-piece mast though. Steel is mentioning three types of poles (common, long pole and stump) so the pole length seems "dynamic" but the topgallant ist a static length thats why I ask and think it is the length excluding the pole head length. My english vocabular is on the edge with topics like these, I don't know as example what a tenon is ... Will redo the excel and replace the image. Dirk
  9. And further on. I have questions, I need answers ๐Ÿ™‚ According to the Original Plan the following values needs clarification: "Mainmast to pole head" 22 18", "Topgallantmast" 7 28", and the sentence below "The mast head to be 13" 6โ€™ (??) long which length includes in the pole head". WHAT exactly is the masthead, green or red part? WHAT does "The mast head to be 13" 6 long which length includes in the pole head". mean? How much is 13" 6 in cm? EDIT: Is 120,4 cm, what makes no sense for a head ??? WHAT exactly is the Topgallantmast dimension (7 28")? INC. or EXCL. the pole head? (I guess EXCL.) How long then is the common pole head? WHAT does "Mainmast to pole head" mean? The whole mast up to the EXCLUDED pole head? But then it is the Topgallantmast included as the mainmast don't have a pole head (?) Is the length of the mast the WHOLE mast or the mast above deck? I really want to find out the exact dimensions for the Sherbourne's mast ๐Ÿ™‚ Dirk

  11. According to the measurements on the original plan these are the yards, boom and gaff. Topsail gaff is missing yet (38 mm). But she had 4 yards as the Alert. The relation of gaff and boom is exactly the sames as on the Alert, yards are different though. Still not sure about the exact mast, topmast and fullmast dimensions. cheers Dirk EDIT: Length corrected as of 21.08.2019 Sherbourne_Boom_and_Gaff_01.pdfSherbourne_Yards_Final_01.pdf

  13. One more question: "Mainmast to pole head" ist this the WHOLE length of the mast? "Pole head" confuses me. Or ist "Topgallant Mast" ADDED to this? So that the mast in whole is in mm 428,25?? (27,28 meters) 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.
