  1. the long rigging road has started to be travelled.
  2. right a few weeks off ….now onto the rigging...….
  3. Wallace.....I have more than enough ports by corel if you want them....Quite happy to post to you FOC if you decide that is the route you are going down.
  4. tend to agree with a lot of what you say, and the personal agendas were blatantly obvious. As to whether it would have been shown if the results were different, not sure about that but again I probably agree with you on that also. You are not prejudiced in the way you think or what you say.
  5. it does have its limitations but for the yards it is ok
  6. Just watched a fascinating documentary of the Mary Rose and the DNA samples taken from several of the remains found on the ship after it was brought up from the Solent....it now transpires that fighting along side the English on board ship that day were at least two crewmen whose origins were from North Africa and from Italy and Spain.. Tudor England was more diverse than we realise.
  7. well there you have it...….all masts and yards completed....yards coloured black just need all the ropework.....Bellona....you nearly ended up in the breakers yard but we struggled on......only your rigging to go now.....what a 6 years...…...HMS Pegasus is beckoning.
  8. last of Bellonas yards being turned on my minicraft lathe attachment, this one being the mizzen topgallant yard.....6 long years to this point. Rigging ahoy.
  9. some of the yards completed minus the blocks and ropework...will be onto the rigging soon. Main yards and sprit yards shown here.
  10. I have used the metal gunports in my Bellona build....they are not supplied with Bellona but I quite like the contrast they give....highlights them and makes a feature out of them which I like.
  11. welcome to the world of corels metal gunports…...some fit fine whilst others don't...and some snap easily......I have loads of spares if you need any.....yours just ask
  12. it is a minicraft lathe attachment....not made anymore but can be picked up on ebay…...the two rods are not long enough in the kit so i bought some stainless steel rods to extend the range of the lathe.

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.
