Thank you, Patrick, I am not sure how many graphics I am going to add ( I don't want it to be too cluttered ) 

 

Thank You, David B., It would be Awesome to sail on her for a day ( I will be the first in line )

Today, I started by making the Boom Vang, I then thought I would try my hand at making the Bow Pulpit, ( This is the first one that I have ever made ) It took quite some time, when I was pleased I painted the Boom Vang and Bow Pulpit Red. The Boom Vang has been installed. Here are the results

Today, I decided that the Volvo ( sail version ) that I started back in July would be made into a Sistership almost identical to this one. ( because I always wished I had done something a bit different ) So, I pulled it off the shelf ( it was kinda dusty it had been sitting there since then ) and faired the frames, I then made the Keel slot and installed it. the Boat is now ready for planking. I think a 1/2" = 1' - 0 "  would make a better sail version ( 32 1/2 " in length ) I will ponder that for sure. Here are the results

HI Pete

 

Nice one!  I'm on board.  However, I think I'm losing track of your ships because you've got so many on the go  :)  :)  :)

 

Nonetheless, it's always a joy watching your builds and this sailing version, in particular will be beauty, for sure.  Do you think you'd be able to do a working version of the rolling furling gear as well?

 

Cheers 

 

Patrick

Ooooh yes, that'll be fantastic Pete, we do like to see how she behaves in the water.  Will she blow the other sailing models out of the water???  Like the real boats do?  Curious to find out.

 

Cheers,

Thank You, Patrick, I think the larger scale will make an awesome pond yacht ( I will start it after I get a few of these completed ) I am also kicking around the idea of Australia II ( would be built static) I will be pondering it for sure, Roller furling would be nice ( we'll see ) 

 

Thank you, Piet, There are a few radio guys around here and I think the Volvo would blow them away, I am curious how well she would sail as well 

 

Best Regards,

Pete

Today, I got started by finalizing the graphics ( I did not want to over do it, so I kept it simple ) I then applied them to the deck. Next, I installed all the winches, the forward hatch the stays and the bow pulpit. I then started on the standing rigging including the running back stay's. Next will be to finish the standing rigging and move to the running rigging. I can almost see the committee boat from here. Here are the results

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.
