  1. I ‘ve choosen the technology of Dmitriy Shevelev for the fabrication. The second part was painted with desaturated bituminous varnish.
  2. Sails. No matter how much you study the experience of the Masters, you still make your own mistakes. I tried to dye the fabric in a folk way, in the broth of onion peel. I liked the color, but problems began later, when gluing. Thre was an unexpected reaction of the colored fabric and the glue MOMENT Carpenter. So the first set of fabric went to the bin.
  3. Valeriy, I tip my hat to you. As always the highest quality posible and an outstanding mastery. My best regards.
  4. It’s all down the hill afterwards - I made ribs of a parrel, I oil-coated and pre-assembled it.
  5. Next, with a little tightness, we stick a workpiece on a toothpick, which is clamped in a cartridge, and process with a sandpaper, on one and then the other side to the desired condition. With a little practice the elements are practically of the same size.
  6. I have made parrels. I have made the parrel - trusses by myself. If anyone would find it interesting. During the working process I have tried several modes of making parrel trucks. Taking into consideration the size of the elements I found that the following mode was the best. I have grinded out a template, in my case D = 2,3 and 2,1 mm , I cut it in required sizes. Then I have drilled the holes (I haven't spent much time on the hands free tool, made it out of the things I had on hand, the mode is the same as when I drilled the holes in dead-eyes).
  7. Вопрос Ваш я понял. Мне непонятны два момента. Первый, - о какой шлюпке вы говорите? Второй, -почему вопрос поднят в разделе такелажа а не ранее ? И наконец, если речь идет о шлюпке « Гиацинта» : I think the time that would be necessary. And if we are talking about the saving of a life, in this case even longer. As we are talking about a navy sailor, who is not a VIP person to travel with the greatest comfort possible. I'm sure you agree with that. My best regards.
  8. My greetings, Sergei, I'm sorry, I didnt understand the context of the question?
  9. I made the studding sail yard too thick. After getting remarks from experienced Master - I remade them thinner, I hope now they have the right thickness.
  10. I made a winding on sailyards of the gall and the sail boom. I’ve installed studding sail yard.

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.
