  1. Now it’s quite visible from you photo, Jason. Many thanks for replying se promptly!
  2. Now i’m seeing a starboard (only) hole, probably for the 1mm stay..
  3. Hi again Jason and thank you for the comment. Finally I'm seeing that I need to prepare one (or maybe two ?) additional lines for the topmast stay and preventer stay despite the fact that the plans show only one single line (no mouse, nothing to help... ) ... According to Petersson one mouse is needed for each stay and probably the "classic" procedure by "serving" the ropes... * I dont know whether you have any different opinion. * The point I can't understand till now is the way we attach and tie those lines on the bowsprit mast... Ani idea? Thank you
  4. Hello to everyone. Just a couple of pics from my recent stages. I have finished the rigging of the bowstring mast [some details in need of touch up for later].. Next and final step: the yards. I'll start from the foremast working upwards on each consecutive mast. I've left for later only the ropes of fore and fore top-mast stay and preventer stay, just to have a better working-space for the fore mast yard. If you believe I go wrong, I'll be glad to see your comments. Cheers
  5. I have finished all the bowsprit-mast fittings and the bowsprit rigging in general. Now I'm ready to permanently fix the whole bowsprit on the ship and deal with the gammoning. Next stop the yards and the relative rigging, starting with the stays of the foremast to the bowsprit etc. Thank you
  6. When you're between two of similar object loves, trying to not neglect the other...
  7. Took the decision to leave the yards as the last act of the model. Nowdays I'm working on the bowsprit fittings...
  8. Hi Jason, hi guys, all those years I think you know my "turtle" speeds... Actually after so many months i started again and I'm working on the bowsprit rigging. Thank you. Some pics to follow.....
  9. Ok, now i’m seeing that those are the lower and topsail yard tyes, as parts of the yards running rigging..
  10. 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.
  11. Thank you Jason for your always kind comments and support.
  12. A couple of pics form my latest work-steps. 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. 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.
