  1. Ratlines for the foremast done. Since it is the first time i have done this i have to accept the result. Will be coloured wirt diluted dull black...
  2. Shrouds done. Maybe i,m starting to get poor eyesight. But actually i think it looks better in the flesh. These nowadays phonecameras can be horribly unforgiving.
  3. As usual.... Pristine work mugje. What did you use for colouring the ratlines?
  4. Started to fiddle with the shrouds and lanyards. Do they need more tension? I can feel that they are quite tight when i touch them. I hope to avoid that the shrouds get sloppy an uneven when i start with the ratlines.
  5. Very slow progress as usual. Only building when i'm motivated and feel fresh. No hurry. Started some work with bowspirit, masts and channels. Caldercraft's 3,5mm deadeyes does not look good at all. The holes must be aligned by Steve Wonder.
  6. I am deeply honored by your comment Chuck. Your modeling skills are a big inspiration to me. It's going slow with me, but I'm in no hurry! I have made some progress with the build lately, but not updated the thread.
  7. For sure soaking it and clamping and pressing is not an option... Pictures?
  8. Brilliant work mugje. The Pegaus kit looks wonderful. When i opened the box and scanned through the kit i was impressed with the general quality, both the parts and wood..... Btw..... The instructions for Pickle is said to be very good. Although i find it hard to fully understand the rigging both in plans and instructions. The tackle pedants for the lower masts.... I can't understand the rigging they are used for, neither in the instructions or the plans...
  9. Seems like we follow the same path... I have my Pegasus kit lying ready for my next bulid 😂 Which could be a looong time before i get started regarding my slow progress....

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.
