  1. Hello everyone, Yesterday I did some work on this model, made a new capstan. The plan is to improve some more parts on the deck. So the level of detail is the same for all the parts.
  2. Hello, wanted to say I am using this thread as reference/inspiration for my own build. Got the kit for my birthday one day and this is the best documented post I could find. Fun to see how long the build is taking, really steady progress. Inserted a few pictures of my own build to show the stage I'm at. It is almost like I don't have to make any hard choices now about what to customize and what not, because you already encountered all the major issues with this kit. Safer for me to make a good build without making any big mistakes. So thanks alot for this thread and keep up the work, Greetings, Hjalmar
  3. Hello, Love watching this build. Been following it for a long time and its never dissapointing. Hope you don't let it nosedive onto the floor again, that was a dissaster (not sure which build it was). May you enjoy your hobby for a long time to come! Greetings H Lipplaa from Holland
  4. Made the blocks for the topmast shrouds. And you can see the main stay. Also a view of the progress so far.
  5. Working on the rigging now. The masts are not glued so the shrouds and stays have to align the masts.
  6. There cannot be enough "look through holes" inside your model, but the the only problem is there wouldn't be a model left then. Hjalmar
  7. Look beautiful in black and white. Great details.
  8. Difficult part of the ship to construct. Makes the ship look more streamlined when it's done i think. Good luck and have fun. Hjalmar
  9. Looks very clean and perfect. You have made a near perfect model here. Congratulations. Hjalmar
  10. Nice floor, you should make the same in your home Like your build, really how it should be done.
  11. Knightheads - vertical timbers on either side of the stem that add strength to the bowsprit and extra backing to the planks just abaft the stem i got this from a nice webstite with some nautical terms http://www.photographers1.com/Sailing/NauticalTerms&Nomenclature.html#S So they are the same type of object but the knightheads are located at the bow of the ship. But anyway thanks for the info because i didnt know about the helmet. And maybe the ones near the mast are called knightheads too for all i know.

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.
