  1. It's just my personal recommendation. And yes you could upload bigger ones πŸ˜‰ Edit: I checked and adjusted some settings: Maximum image dimensions to save: 2048 Γ— 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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚
  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 πŸ™‚ 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" 6’ (??) 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 πŸ™‚ 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
  14. Ok I should have checked Gregors dimensions as he missed a line and then mixed the values too. AND there are FOUR yards and it seems to fit dimensions wise πŸ˜‰ EDIT: Corrected Values as of 21.08.2019

  16. The dimensions in original from the Sherbourne plan. It would be great to convert these to metrics and 1:64 as I don't understand/trust mine. EDIT: Guess I found one mistake πŸ˜‰ cheers Dirk

  18. I crosspost here from my Sherbourne thread. Right now searching collections.rmg.co.uk. Will take a while with just "cutter" as search word .. hehe .. but already found a good one. Topmast aft, only three yards and 1783. I will edit this post with more finds. Very interesting is that there are two cutters with topmast aft but different rigs. Another one with 3 yards and old rig (sail)

  20. I'm still struggling HOW to do my Sherbourne Rig. I know I like to do the "older" one but it is very hard to finde good sources in detail. At the moment my only "inspiration" is Marquardts Rig. I tried to convert these dimensions to 1:64 and they feel wrong, crossjack yard just 10,97 meters (171 mm). May anybody do the same so we can compare results? Possible that yards and inch were different to mm at this time? I also wondering that there are just three yards mentioned, It seems the Top gallant Yard is missing or is possible the "Topgallant Mast" the yard? Interesting is the Topsail Gaff. Very rare seen on models and paintings. I like that. The following painting shows the topsail gaff but again another different rig. Right now I'm testing the following dimensions adapted from the image above and the Alert book. Any input is appreciated πŸ™‚ cheers Dirk PS: I am also working on this And this πŸ˜„

  22. There are more from Dusek: Statenjacht Utrecht & La Belle Poule as example.

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.
