  1. I have found a video of a Santa Maria where we can see at 1:38 the way the rope was sew. Is this the correct way?
  2. Thank you guys! Can I ask how did you sew the bolt ropes to the sails?
  3. Can someone explain to me how the boltropes are glued to to sails? What glue is used, carpenter glue or super glue? Thank you in advance.
  4. Thank you Frankie! You mentioned the use of white glue. What kind of glue did you mean, carpenter glue or super glue (or maybe something else)? Could you please describe the process of gluing? I`m in the process of preparing my sails and I would like some advice on the matter.
  5. Dear Peter, I am happy that my photos helped you in the building process. For some reason I wrote an „r” instead of a ”t”.... It was late and I was tired. I kindly ask the admins to correct this since apparently I cannot change the title. All the best!
  6. I was in London for a couple of days and I was able to visit the Cutty Sark. Probably there are other photos of the ship, but I will upload mine just because it is so beautiful...
  7. Some new pictures about my work on the Santa Maria. Things are going well and I learn something new every time I spend time with it.
  8. Good to hear that Jeff! Maybe their newer kits are more consistent.
  9. Great info Guys! Thank you so much! So it seems that the Santisima Trinidad had indeed two different paintings : yellow and red. I will look closely the British National Museum`s website for captured Spanish ships. Also, the paintings of Carlos Parilla Penagos are beautiful...
  10. Good to know you are back in the game Rossi46! I am really looking forward to this
  11. Another picture of my progress. Although plenty of mistakes were made, I am truly happy with the results till now:
  12. Thank you montanes and bruce! I am glad that the original plans of those great ships survived

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.
