  1. As you can see, Orthodox cristmas was on Sunday, april 27th, monday was holliday day, few days after two holliday days for may 1th, and begin with friday april 25th until tomorrow may 6th, I was on some kind of miny vacation. Even I want to work my regular job, I don`t have no client here, everybody connect this days and went somewhere. From some reasons, I was not planing to travell somewhere for couple of days, so, there was a plenty of time for Her Majesty, and works are progressing significantly Next on list, to fullfil deck content, are different spare yards, boat masts, jards for studd-sails ... Their number and position on the main deck and on deck houses was reconstructed following Campbell plans and photos I collected all this years, and presented on drawing in upper post Material - barbeque bamboo sticks For this purpose, to stand on deck or deck houses, making of them is easy. Just put bambo stick in dremell and use sandpaper. Yards for sails will be considerably higher bite, having in mind all fittings and their construction So, let it be
  2. Thank you for your really nice and supporting words, my friends Mainly, all goes well, just as I have planned. As you probably remember, I made several serious mistakes at the beginning (lost hull and deck lines and position). On some way, I just do not know how, I succeed to eliminate those mistakes in outer view to my model, at least, I can not see them looking Her Majesty from outside But in the main deck, situation is quite different, and deck railings are not parallel to deck. How works on the model are progressing, it seems that my decision to overload decks with hyper detailed parts - to visually mask mistakes, was a right one For now, considering that aft and fore decks are almost done with all elements on their place, the most difficult constructive challenges on main deck are also done, so I can be quite relaxed, making remaining elements Next picture present current state of works on main deck So, my plan is to make them all, then to glue them all on their places, than to make tinny net fences on fore and aft deck railings Then I plan to correct eventually colour mistakes, and then, finally to go to the next stage - masts and yards. Sure, there will be a grand dust cleaning works before Her Majesty moved to one of child rooms where is no dust Having in mind the speed of my works, it will be almost OK if I reach that phase at the autumn this year Again, thank you all for watching
  3. Thank you dear friends. Life goes on, it is rainy outside, so work continues
  4. Thank you dear friends I spend wonderful day with Hothead, Rhea and Adrian, in touristic farm near Novi Sad, having lunch and screwung arround with very sad ending ofday Adrian passed away silently in his transport bag during my drive back home. I thought he was sleeping, but ... 11 years old ... Even his hair pissed me off, I miss him
  5. Wellcome to CS fleet! I pull my chair and watch wirh interest
  6. Marc, rigging is still great mystery for me, to say - jungle. I'm following you amd learn
  7. Thank you Wiktor.L and wellcome to my log. You are 100% right, my friend. This approach you are talking of, I used while making small parts on a fore and aft deck. I have to admit, that at one moment making Fife rails, I lose my patience, and thinking about bunch of ropes and sails which will go under and over, this details, particulary their microscopic look, is not to much significant. That was also reason why I gave up to make sheaves on pillars, as I did on a fore deck details earlier All coments are more than wellcome See you here and arround
  8. Litle research work Position of different Fife Rails is briefly explained on Lou`s old photos As you can see, arround main mast, there are two different, one with "regular" rounded pillars, and another with built-in triple hinge in square pillar And with fore mast, there is second with built-in triple hinge in square pillar Anybody know reason - why?
  9. There will be a bunch of ropes, my friend, and, to be honest, that is main reason I decide to say "stop, this is it"

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.
