    The guns are now rigged with the exception of the traversing tackle which is causing problems.  Essentially the blocks supplied are too large.  My intention was to hook the blocks onto the guns and to the rings mounted on eyelets on the deck - consistent with that shown in the Anatomy of a Ship.  This turns out to leave very little distance between the blocks.  The whole thing looks rather odd and out of scale.  Fortunately the eyelets shown in the photos are dry-fitted, so I may ditch the rings and lash the blocks directly to the eyelets.  I will leave the blocks on the guns attached by hooks.  All of this should provide a slightly larger and more acceptable gap between the blocks, and I hope, look a little more realistic.  Comments are welcome.








    I'll show my way of rigging guns. It seems to me that the coils of the ropes look more realistic. In general, I really like your Granado. Very good work.





  2. Hi, SpyGlass! Greetings from Sevastopol, in this city was the naval base of the Phoenix))

     Phoenix is a very good kit, I'm also building it now. I want to say, when grinding, you need to grind off about half the thickness of the first planking. In another case, the second planks may not be installed precisely enough, as I did - the length of the planks was not enough.  I was very upset((

    Unfortunately, there is no reserve in the length of the second planks.


    In the bow, everything fits perfectly.

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.
