  1. jump straight in Nazir......you can pick tools up as and when you need them......I am a why cant I do it rather than can I do it bloke...….go for it is my advice.
  2. Main yard now completed ….am I beginning to enjoy this rigging business?....been inside for too long.
  3. cheers Old...….rigging is one of those things that can enhance or ruin what you have done before as you know, and it is not so easily hidden.....but I grit my remaining teeth and carry on ...
  4. all three masts now completed and fitted with their respective blocks etc. and the main yard is now underway.
  5. Main mast fitted with all its blocks and deadeyes......Victory in the background keeping an eye on things.....My friend Keith was quartermaster on board Victory till he left the navy a few years back
  6. I did follow that for a while.....it looked fantastic.
  7. jump in Bill.....it is not without its problems being a corel kit but it is rather beautiful
  8. hey there old friend.....I have just brushed the dust from Greyhound....hope all is ok....
  9. main mast furniture slowly being added......the only trouble is I have just found a glenfarclas single malt that needs some attention...
  10. all well over here cheers, and I trust and hope all is ok at your end.....sometimes I just look at the rigging and just think why do I put myself through this......then I go out and buy another ship to complete.....utter madness......I may do like albert finney did in the film network and stick my head out of the window tonight and shout....."I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore" ...it may catch on.
  11. mast tops dead eyes in place using aforementioned method.
  12. hey Hamilton....long time no see.....hope you are keeping well......Bellona is now 7 years in the making.....Greyhound took about 10 months but my corel Victory about ten years.....
  13. foremast dead eyes using my solution in previous post.....seems to have worked fine.
  14. well... corels cast collars for the dead eyes mounted on the masts are useless(first pic)….they just keep snapping ….so my solution is a piece of black rope secured around the dead eye with just enough rope to poke through the mast and a brass eyelet poked through the opposite direction and glued in place. The eyelets will be blackened.....job sorted....just need 32 of them. Corels fittings are sometimes so bad they are not worth including in the kit.

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.
