Jesselee, you might want to check out Chuck's method of making flags from tissue paper, I believe he explains it in his log on the Cheerful but if you do a search you will find that many have used that method, by the way, followed you build from the beginning great job and thanks for all the tips along the way

 

Best,

Ed

Got my replacement flags in. They are printed cloth so I have to put glue around the edges so when it is cut out it wont fray. 

Inspected my ship because months have passed since I really got to spend time on it most every day. I see that it is coated with dust and needs a very thorough cleaning. Also saw a place below the bowsprit that I missed rigging.

Man, life just does not want me to get this model finished. I've been getting the flags ready to add on the ship. I have been looking at pictures of waving flags and I also fly flags at my house. I've been studying the different ways flags flap and fold as they fly in different wind strengths and forming the flags.

Finally got to work on rigging the Jack to the Jackstaff. Got it on. Not positive on just how this is supposed to be tied off but here's what I got. Haven't settled on which direction I'll have it waving, will get the Ensign on and then figure it out.

I finally got the flags on. I guess this means this build is finished. I would like to build a lifeboat to hang on the back but who knows when I'll ever get around to that.  Maybe that could be a mini-build some time in the future.

 

Now I have to get my Lyme damaged brain to remember how to get this labeled as "Finished"

Jesse - it has been a real pleasure watching you work through the build: those flags are gorgeous. Nice work all around.  You have given this old guy the urge to get to the shop and resume work on the Syren which has been an idle build for about a year.  

Congratulations!

Buddy refusing to be left out of the picture! Will put a few more up of completed ship later

Been a long road, flags are the cherry on the cake. Kudos on a wonderful build.

 

I couldn't put my little buddy next to any of my builds, he's a canine chain saw turn your back and you have toothpicks.

 

Looking forward to more pics.:cheers:

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.
