  1. Ok, now i’m seeing that those are the lower and topsail yard tyes, as parts of the yards running rigging..
  2. Greetings form Greece. Another question arises for my next turns. Cant find the answer using the plans or my relative naval manuals... What's that rope-line [marked with red by me] at which line F is attached via those metal structures (rigging trucks ?). It is line B (0,50mm), line C (0,25mm I think..)? The above combination belongs to mizzen mast and main mast rigging also.. Thank you in advance.
  3. Thank you Jason for your always kind comments and support.
  4. A couple of pics form my latest work-steps. Thank you.
  5. Copy that. I'll go that way, as Joe mentioned some posts above the same. Thank you again.
  6. Thank you again. To my knowledge, Caldercraft is a traditional british company. I dont know why they use such terms, but I am not familiar with specific naval terminology... Have you any idea or reccomendation about the right place to fix those tackles for the topping lifts? On the deck right below the respective belaying pin or on the channel? Regards. Stergios
  7. Thank you for your comment. I'm using the terminology based in the manual of Caldercraft's Snake. That uses (and shows) the terms gaff boom and driver gaff as the upper and lower part respectively.
  8. Hi guys. Some pics from my recent workout... Now its time to find the more right place to fix the tackle for the gaff boom topping lifts: on the channell or on the deck...
  9. Wow, I do appreciate so much your assistance and help Joe! All the best. Stergios
  10. Thanks Joe. I'm trying to find a relative close up view from your build log but with no results for the moment. Cheers.
  11. Hi Joe. I'm back again. I'm not seeing any pre-planned place for an eybolt on the channel plans for the above named use.... Did you customize on the Cruizer channel the placement of the tackle for the topping lift? Thank you.
  12. That's a good question Chris... No reply fro the mo... Cheers
  13. Thank you so much Joe! Keep in touch Hi Dave. Thank you, again.
  14. Thank you again Dave. I sent a relative question to Jim, I hope to help us. He finished gaff boom and gaff driver rigging so many days before...
  15. Hi Jim I'm facing a problem regarding gaff boom rigging (especially topping lift and its attachments). When you'll find your time please take a look at my build pages.. Did you place eyelets on the deck around the mizzen mast to fix the tackle of the boom topping lift or did you go as Petersson p.26 plan to the mizzen channels? Thank you.

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.
