  1. Much time has passed, but now i am back Next step was to build the deadeyes and chainplates for the main-platform. For the holes in the deadeyes I need a helpfull tool. The tool it´s made from wood and brass. The deadeyes are made on the lathe After drilling the deadeyes the edges are chamfered upward Now it´s time to made the chainplates. The plates have the dimensions of 1 mm x 0,5 mm x 12mm; above an eye and down a long hole 0.5 mm x 1 mm The plates in position The plates are fixed with glue on the deadeyes ready for stropping The stropp for deadeyes is made with a real splice The rope, made from three strands, will opend and for each strand i use a needle to made the splice. All deadeyes are finish spliced on plates Have fun

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.
