  1. Thanks Piet! There is an awful lot of fine dust and sawdust all over the whole thing. Doing some rigging yesterday and noticed how much of it is on deck and around the guns and their tackle. It has caught the sawdust from other mini projects here and there because this is the on;y spot in the house for anything I work on. Going have to get some of those cans of dusting spray or something.
  2. Thank you CDW, Dave and Vivian. Good to hear from you again Vivian Jesse
  3. How did you color the sail? Is it painted? Looks very good! Jesse
  4. I'm having the same problem Steve. I have a set that looks the same I got off ebay and they do this all the time. Mine might be a cheaper version of the ones Tom has. Jesse
  5. The footropes are getting a little out of sh. I have decided it is hopeless to keep shaping the hang just right while doing all this rigging so I'm gonna' wait until the end to get them hanging just right again. Jesse
  6. Finished all the Stuns'l booms on the Yards. Forgot to take a picture of them finished before I started adding them. Have added the Main and Fore Lower Main Coarse Yards. Lanyards, Jeer Lines, Lifts, Leech Lines and Bunt Lines. I'm not very good at photography so I'm not really able to show all this detail like I want to. Rigging the falls and tackles for all this is becoming much more difficult for me with the nerve damage in mu hands and fingers so it takes 4-5 times longer than it should but I get through it. I do find it fascinating to actually see haw all this rigging works and where everything is belayed. I think about how they had to figure all this out over time in the History of sailing. I tried to rig the lower Yards without pinning them to the masts like the instructions say. Wanted to let the rigging hold them like the real thing but found out that with a model gravity is not the same and the rigging pulls the Yards upward and they wont sit facing forward like you want then too without pinning them in place. Beginning the Main and Fore Topsail Yards Rigging now. Jesse
  7. I agree, you will love the line and you will want to get more. The blocks he makes will make you want to throw all others away. Jesse
  8. Dave, I think it is awesome that you can come up with such an idea and actually make one yourself! Jesse
  9. Chucks line from the Syren Co. is the best quality line I have ever seen. Look for it at the bottom right side of the Home page where it lists businesses that sponsor MSW. It it well worth the effort to order and it is a decent price for quality that it is. The line sent with the kit just does not compare. Jesse
  10. I have the same problem.When our HWH went out this summer I had to shut the water off to the whole house. Our church mens group put me a new one in but failed to install a shut-off valve like they promised. 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.
