  1. I've started rigging the lower shrouds on the Fwd masts. The next pics you'll see is when I'm finished with all lower shrouds. No sense in boring you with repeated stuff
  2. Moving right along...I tied four shrouds on each side of the aft mast. That's it for today
  3. All you beer drinkers will get a kick out this! When I checked into the burn hospital I told the head doctor that I needed a Kiltlifter beer with my dinner and if it was possible to do that? He said....absolutely! Then promptly wrote a prescription for one Kiltlifter beer each night. They locked up the beer with all the narcotics and each evening they logged out a beer and I enjoyed it with my meal!
  4. I'm back! I was able to trim the first shroud I rigged before the explosion and I now just started the second shroud with my crippled hands. They still work...but slow but sure. It's great to get back into my shipyard after five weeks in the hospital. Thanks for all your kind words.
  5. Thank you all for all the kind words and support! You all are very special to me.
  6. I just got out of the hospital and I'm champing at the bit to get back to my boat. My bandaged "claw" hand still can't tie the tiny knots just yet
  7. Thanks everyone. To answer everyone's question of the day....there was no open flame near me when it blew! Careful with stuff like FlexSeal. My hands are burned so no boat building for a while.
  8. well I have an interesting post to our site! I Blew Myself Up ,BOOM” i’ve Been I The Maricopa County Bern Center tor three weeks. I was spraying some pant sealant when the can just blew up. It had nothing to do with my build but many of us do use sprayer paint so this serves as a very serious warning.
  9. I've rigged the first shroud. I have to say that since this kit came with such poor pieces to make deadeyes and chainplates, that this was the most difficult part of this build. I had to purchase and devise multiple concepts before I even got all the deadeyes and chainplates rigged. They are far from perfect and poor next to all my other builds, but this is what I wound up with.
  10. I'VE ROUGH MOUNTED THE DEADEYES AND CHAINPLATES. NOW I HAVE TO GET THE ANGLES CORRECT BEFORE NAILING IN THE "TAILS". THEN I CAN RIG THE FIRST SHROUDS

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.
