Royal William by marktiedens - FINISHED - Euromodel - scale 1:72

Recommended Posts

Another small update - the topgallant & topsail yards are now mounted after fastening all those tiny blocks to the yards. The lifts are only done on the topgallant yards - the rest will be done after all the yards are mounted. The braces will be about the last thing done - with them in place it`s really hard to get my hands in to do other rigging. The topgallant halliards are belayed to deadeyes at the mast tops & the topmast yard halliards for the fore & main are belayed to the chain wales. For the ribs & parrels,I had some ribs left over from a previous build & the parrels are from the bead store(I never throw away leftover parts & wood). Thanks for looking in.

A little more progress - the foremast yards are all fully rigged(except for the braces which will be added later). I added 2 braces to the spritsail yard which were not shown on the plans - I don`t know how else they would keep it from swinging around without them. Also added the sheet lines to the spritsail yard & the tack lines to the fore yard. The foresail sheet lines will be added later also. That`s a lot of ropes coming down to the deck!

Mark,

The following figure is from R.C. Anderson where he suggests that the form of spritsail yard bracing  (only the starboard shown to keep things 'simple') was typical in English ships around 1690. Just another piece of the jigsaw.

Well,silly me for not reading Pete`s notes carefully:default_wallbash:. Re-did the spritsail yard braces. I did simplify them slightly as I could not get the aft block under the top installed - just not enough room to get my hands in there.

Mark,

That 'small' change to your spritsail brace is a stand-out feature and well worth the extra effort. I must say again (and many have said it earlier), your attention to detail and keeping things historically accurate has been impressive throughout this build.

Thanks Pete - I tend to get in a hurry - That`s when I forget to read your well researched notes & have to do things over!

 

Thanks Popeye - I`m already wondering how I got this far without totally messing up.  No admiral here,but I like spaghetti anyway:P.

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.
