  1. Greettings dear Gery. Yes, you are right, this is the color of the oil- coated pear tree. Pear tree wood is one the my favourite. My best regards.
  2. Amazing work. Among everything else I would like to point out a mastery work with paint and the skills in making material loook vintage. It looks very authentical. My best regards, Alexander.
  3. I’ve made the mast hoop. I couldn’t find the brass of the required diameter, instead I had a bronze wire. I had troubles while blackening. I had to buy a special solution, which solved the problem.
  4. I made cables, and i’m starting assembling the spars. I started with bowsprit, finished assembling anchor bitt and some small pieces
  5. I'm very glad you found my working experience interesting. My best regards.
  6. I’ve made a fit check, on a dry. I’ll assemble it later, with the rigging.
  7. Jack-pins. I found the technology of making jack-pins in the report of Uriy Kimborovich (bim), that he used for his schooner “Izmail”, for what I’m very grateful to him. I made a simple device out of the materials I had. Material - pear tree. Firstly I prepared the bars of the desired diameter, and so as not to waste too much material (for the support fixture in the collet) I was carving from a long rod, as the length of the coordinate table would allow me.
  8. Thank you very much, Colleagues for such a high evaluation of my work. My best regards. Alexander
  9. Dear Keith, The hull of the yacht is of an amazing quality and beauty. And I think so too, that it would be a pity to hide it under the paint. I wish you inspiration in your work. My best regards.
  10. Before the soldering, the adjacents parts were grinded off. Afterwards - blackening and assembling.
  11. And then I proceed using the technology of the master-classes. I decided to solder at the big diameter, because when the dead-eye is swaged, the deformation in this area is minimal and the probability of damaging the solder is less.
  12. In order to make metal pieces of lashing cleat- dead eyes I have made a small rim out of a small -diameter bolt.

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

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.
