  1. Hello, I'm 3D modelling the Black Pearl and I'm struggling to find any good reference on how the masts are supposed to be rigged. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  2. Hello, This is my 3D build log for HMS Pandora. The build was started in February 2011, and it is still in progress. The primary references include the Anatomy of the Ship: The 24-gun Frigate Pandora (the plans), The Shipbuilder's Repository (it contains the dimensions and the scantlings of HMS Porcupine, which is of the same class as the Pandora), and the “Swan” Series. Many other books and online resources are also referred to. I began with drafting a 2D drawing of the ship, and then I imported different parts of the 2D drawing into Solidworks to guide the 3D building process. In the following posts I will post the screenshots I captured during the build and briefly describe what is new in each figure. Jingyang
  3. Hi. I cannot find any reference to 3D printing Rigging blocks. Having no idea on where to start. I downloaded Tinkercad and went through the tutorials one by one. Not sure on tinkercad .. maybe I need to try another CAD package like sketchup. At this stage I am open to any advice. Once I get the design I can easily get them 3D printed. Regards Antony.
  4. There is a 3D printing company under Shapeways call Model Monkey. They have a lot of ships parts in a variety of scales and cover Age of Sail to more recent offerings. They have just announced ship's wheels for a number of British and US ships. Here is one page of their catalog: https://modelmonkey.wixsite.com/modelmonkey/1-16-1-200-scales Here's one for ship of the line ships wheels in 1:72 scale: https://www.shapeways.com/product/JJNDUKWSQ/1-72-wheel-and-pedestal-for-ships-of-the-line If you want to replace carronades they have them also: https://www.shapeways.com/product/67LWD97AK/1-72-royal-navy-68-pounder-carronades-set-of-2 Scout around their site. Just thought I'd highlight a site that supports the hobby.
  5. Hello everybody! I finished 3D model rigging of the brig Mercury. Only rigging and sails
  6. I recently learned about a browser based 3D CAD program which is able to run on Windows and Mac platforms as well as mobile devices. https://www.onshape.com/ This program offers a free version and a paid version. So I signed up for the free version and quickyly learned that my 10 yr old 64bit computer's Radeon graphics card does not support webGL which is required to run this program on your web browser, tablet or phone. Also, your browser must also support webGL and most modern web browsers like Firefox and Chrome support this feature but some browsers disable this feature because of performance issues. I learned too that some graphics cards are supported and some are not. The program from what I can tell is in a Beta production status. Despite all these various requirements it look's like a vary robust 3D CAD program. Here is a link about webGL https://www.khronos.org/webgl/
  7. Hi. I have just been given a 3D printer kit. The previous owner got feed up with trying to build it and the soldering was a no no. http://www.velleman.co.uk/contents/en-uk/p576_k8200.html It has No software. He has misplaced it. or it never arrived What I would like to use it for is making small fittings and figures. Can anyone suggest a software package that will do this. To be able to scan a picture and then convert it into a 3D printable file. If its a freeware then even better. One of the first things I would use it for is to make the Victory captains entrance parts( carvings ) Thanks in advance. Antony.

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.
