  1. Helle, I would like to thank you very much for liking my work. Also many thanks for the many LIKES. The report continues with the fore stay and preventer fore stay. A special feature is the attachment to the bowsprit with leather collars.
  2. Many thanks to you for the interest and the nice comments, also for the LIKES. I continued with the Main stay. Below are the corresponding pictures:
  3. The shrouds of the La Creole for the mizzenmast had a diameter of 58 mm, which corresponds to a diameter of 1.2 mm on a scale of 1:48. The foremost shrouds were not served in this case. Thus I have set all shrouds so far. Here are a few pictures. Finally, a picture of the current state of construction.
  4. @KORTES Fantastic pictures of an outstanding model. I am excited about your great work and congratulate you for your beautiful model.
  5. Before it goes on in the report I would not Forget to thank you for your nice comments an the many LIKES. After the little excursion to the bulwark I continued with the shrouds for the foremast. The foremast has 5 shrouds per side. Therefore, the last shrouds require a special design. These are placed together with a so-called horse-shoe-splice. "Every picture is worth a thousand words."
  6. Hello, thank you for your interest and for the benevolent words. Also thanks at all for die many LIKES. Before I continue with the standing rigging, I have to add different details, because otherwise there is no accessibility. On the one hand it concerns the ship toilietts, on the other hand it concerns belayin pins and cleats. I hope you like the pictures.
  7. Hello @druxey first of all, thanks for your attention and all other for the LIKES. In between, I always need a change in model building to maintain the motivation. So far I have used a purchased anchor cable that was a bit too thick. Now I've tried to make a better anchor cable with my rope making machine. The anchor cable is made as a cable laid rope. In the original cable had a diameter of 107 mm, which corresponds to a scale of 1:48 exactly 2.2 mm. This consists of 3 x 3 standed right handed ropes laid up left handed. I think that the new anchor cable is much better than the purchased one.
  8. The beautiful carvings give the model a high quality look. By the way, an interesting technique for the stand.
  9. Hi Rob, I have just seen your progress from your rigging. Impressively beautiful pictures!

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.
