Ok bowsprit is finished Tried to add a little extra rope work that that the plans didn't show but picked up from other build logs Not installing it or masts till probably late January or February due to we will be moving back to Texas I figured the ship would have a hard time making the long trip so everything mast related will be done off ship

Ok guys now this part of the build I have really enjoyed The mizzenmast is completed and ready for installation the hardest part I found was tapering the mast and getting them to match the pattern Of course as everyone knows the blocks that are supplied are of poor shape and quality so I did have to reshape them into oval type shape but overall making the mast was fairly straightforward

Hey guys and gals Ran out of my single hole blocks I've ordered them but waiting for them to come in So I took advice from a couple of chaps on another string and decided to change my mast woolings I gues they are called the brass rings on the masts and bowsprit to rope to make it a little more traditional looking So here is the out come

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.
