  1. Hi, for the many nice comments, I thank you very much. It is a real pleasure to receive such a recognition. That encourages me to continue like this. Also for the many LIKES a big thank you. Continuation: Guide blocks inside the bulwark In addition to double blocks, a series of single and triple blocks must also be made as guide blocks for the bulwark. In contrast to the large single blocks with iron fittings (length 6.8 mm in the scale 1:48), the simple blocks with strops are much smaller copies with only 4.3 mm in length. That does not make splicing much easier. In this respect, the short splices are not as uniform as they have already seen. The next picture shows a single block in size comparison to a cent coin. Sequel follows …
  2. Hello, here I show a new Video of the current state of the model: LINK
  3. @Dowmer Thanks for your nice words. A fine model, your long boat. On the model of the La Créole in the Musée national de la Marine Paris in 1:40 scale the mousing looks like this: Maybe I'll do it. Let's see.
  4. Hi Bob, Thank you very much for pointing out this tiny detail. Since the hooks are very small, it will be very difficult to do it properly. So I do not know yet if I'll do it.
  5. @Dubz @BETAQDAVE @druxey Hi, first of all, I would like to thank you for your interest. How I'm doing the hook, I explained elsewhere in the report. Here I show again the corresponding picture:
  6. Hello friends, here is the continuation to the production of block strops with splice:
  7. Hey Andrey, I've been watching your vidoes for some time now. You are a fantastically good model maker. You build extremely precise and with ingenious tricks you make the greatest details. I have already learned a lot from you, and I would like to thank you for allowing us to participate in your model making.
  8. Hello, at the moment I have little time for my hobby. Therefore only a short update. Here´s another try. I hope that I can do it with a reasonable amount of time. So it takes a little practice.
  9. Hi, thank you for the positive comments and the many LIKES. After a short break I continue with the double blocks 4.5 mm long. These were fastened along the bulwark at the height of the waterway. Source: B. Spinnen, Pariser Model So far I have glued the block strops. But that does not correspond to the original. So I tried to make the block strops with a splice. Here's the first try:
  10. Hello, thank you for the nice notes and the many LIKES. Before I continue with the ratlines I have to do the following: Along the bulwark of the French corvette, a series of blocks, serving for diverting, for example, halliards and other ropes, were hung in eyebolts. These blocks had iron fittings and hooks. I made them in a proven way.
  11. Hello Phil, thank you for your interest and the nice comment. Thanks to all the others for the many LIKES. For a change, I make in between blocks with fittings for the fore topsail sheets. These blocks are 32.5 cm long; in 1:48 scale, this is 6.8 mm.

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.
