  1. More work again today (whats up with me - two days on the trot) anyway I managed to fit the mizzen deadeyes and tention them on both sides, only six more to do next on the mizzen tops. Pics show the deadeyes and an arty shot. OC.
  2. Thank you wallace, all the best with the tooth (bad subject of mine) thank you for the encouragement. OC.
  3. Hi all, I had a good bash at the pearl today first I got on the table just enough items needed, but also including my magnifier/light, first job was to blow away a few layers of dust (suppose it would have looked quite good being a dead ship with some dust) anyway I was kind of feeling a bit lost and took a while to get back into my stride and work out the best place to pick up from - I decided to continue with the main-upper shroud deadeyes, so same procedure as before - cut some thread, rubbed some watered pva into the thread to smooth out some of the fraying, then I ran my hand drill through the dead eye holes, next off was to lash the three deadeyes to the shroud ropes and secure with a smear of ca, then I lashed the two ends of the deadeyes together. So main upper shrouds attached - awaiting blackening and ratlines. Its good to be back. OC.
  4. Thanks lou, I am especially pleased with the unit to keep them all safe and dust free. OC.
  5. Fine work mate , keep the updates coming in loving the start of this build. OC.
  6. Well done denis - what a lovely piece of work certainly should be pride of place in your home. OC.
  7. I foregot to say phil - its the small scale extras that you are adding to your vic that are making her stand out, and as we all discover its a slow progress but with thought - that makes all the difference - loving your attention to detail. OC.
  8. Thank you kindly wallace, like wise with you and yours, good to hear about your new set up - will be good to see your updates up and running again all the best. OC.
  9. That looks excellent mate those solder joints look spot on. OC.

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.
