Thanks Greg & Don. Rigging is not my favorite thing to do - very slow at it.

 I don`t know why the rope looks a little fuzzy in the last picture - it`s Chuck`s rope & there is no fuzz on it. May be an artifact from my cheapo camera. The first two pictures are a little blurry - they were taken in my camera`s "no mans land". Too far for the close-up setting & too close for the normal setting:(.

Thanks,ragove - happy to have them done:D.

 By the way,I think I forgot to mention the ratlines are standard Coats & Clark sewing thread & the spacing was done by eye.

Hi mates & thanks for looking in. A little more progress  made - I have finished installing the main & mizzen mast back stays & the mizzen stays. The crowsfeet at the mizzen top are also done. The shroud cleats provided  are really nice,but looked a little large on the mizzen stay,so I had one a little smaller that I used. I will use the kit ones on the other areas where they are needed. Just about time to install that fragile bowsprit & hope I don`t snap it off while turning the ship back & forth:o.

Another little update - I thought I would take a little break from rigging & add some nails to the wales as Ken did on his RW. The nails I used are from the railroad area of my local hobby shop. They are called track pins & the nice thing about them is they are already blackened :D.

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.
