  1. I know it's been a while since I posted anything. Just need to rig the two flags and I am done. A bunch of things have been going on in real life that is keeping me from the work bench. Been trying to find out the proper way to rig the flags. I dont want to just glue or tie the flag to the rope. Been pondering on whether to build a lifeboat to hand from the back davits like one of our other Syren builders did. Every time I look at it it looks like something is missing to me. I really hope everything lets up around here and lets me get back to the bench soon! Jesse
  2. I have always wanted to visit there!
  3. I had to make mine with better wood. The wood supplied in this kit will never work for parts like this.
  4. Wow, I'm loving this. It has always been my dream to build this ship but I probably will never get to. Maybe a smaller model or a Ship-In-Bottle one day. Your detail and historical information about her is outstanding. I would love to see this one in person one day when it is completed. Keep up the good work!!!!!! Jesse
  5. Good fix. All I can see is a very thin line on the middle one. Looks like a light pencil mark.
  6. Working on the bouy, it's rigging and the anchor rigging and tackle. I snipped pieces off a broken jewlers saw blade to simulate the iron strop. on the block. The instructions say this rigging is made to look more weathered from being in and out of the water so much. I tried several colors of paint wash but what worked the best was just acrylic black very watered down. Wet the line with this and run it through my pinched finger and thumb. I had a hard time doing the bouy harness but got through it. Rigged up the anchor. Did the tackle and rope coils. The rigging of the bouy was not clearly shown in the instruction book pictures so I looked up what I could in what books I have and kind of guessed on how the rope coils were toed to the shrouds. This is just on the Starboard side. Still have to do this on the Port. Jesse

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.
