  1. No, it's this color here LINK YLI Seidengarn #100/2, 200 m, Fb. 234 dunkelbraun / dark brown
  2. This is model building on the highest level. I can learn a lot from you. Thanks for sharing.
  3. @druxey @davec Hi, thanks for the positive feedback, and also all the others for the LIKES. Slowly I work my way up the shrouds of the main mast with the ratlines. Today I want to give some details about the ratlines. Often pictures show more than words can describe. I hope that it is the same in this case. Enjoy the pictures:
  4. Hi, Chuck, this has become a wonderful model. The rigging is also a dream. I admire your work, I can learn a lot from it.
  5. Hi Greg, the masts and tops look fantastically good. An absolutely clean and precise work. Do you also use steel wool for the finishing ?
  6. Hi Carl, thanks for the kind words. All the others thanks for the LIKES. In the meantime, I am making the ratlines on the port side of the main mast. This is also a question of discipline, regularly two ratlines every day ... 😁
  7. @Ondras71 Thank you for your nice comment. Today only a short update. The starboard side is so far equipped with the ratlines.
  8. Hello, the current status for the installation of ratlines is as follows: I almost forgot the futtock staves and the catharpins. These should have been mounted before the ratlines. I am currently preparing the components for this.
  9. Hello, the end of the ratlines have an eye splice, but in simplified form. The following pictures show how it works. The end is inserted twice through the strands:
  10. Hello, I was very intensively involved with the serving of ropes and built myself a rope serving machine. If you are interested you can read up on some things here LINK. Here you can also watch a video LINK.
  11. @deadbrotherbear @paulsutcliffe @Jeronimo Many thanks for your kind remarks, and thanks to all others for the LIKES. Slowly it becomes clear to me, why I pressed myself around the beginning to weave the ratlines. But steadily and laboriously I work my way up the shrouds. There are even some fellow modellers who claim that this work can be mediative and very relaxing. But unfortunately I have not felt any of that so far. Therefore the motto is: Hold on! On the following picture you can see the current status of the ratlines for shrouds and the passage.

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.
