Thank you Mattie and Nigel for looking in and your kind comments..... Just a quick update as to where I'm at,( no pictures at this time, sorry Sjors!) I don't want anyone to think I've abandoned ship :P ......... it's been awhile since I've posted any progress..... All I have left to do on the rigging is to tie off the port side fore mast back stays , then  I'm finished with the rigging. this I plan to do today :D :D :D :D . The only things left to do will be adding some misc. features and reinstalling the cat heads.When that's finished then I'll post some finished pictures . My thanks to everyone here for all the help I've received to put this together.

you've heard of a skeleton crew, well when it came time to placing the figures, I realized I 

didn't have a figure for the tiller , so I made a wire skeleton fig.to fill in. Next time I go to Michaels

I'll get some clay and try my luck at making a figure.

  Wayne......... thanks for dropping by, glad you liked it, I'm just glad it finally got finished !! :)

 

 

  Sherry ......... Thank you too for look'n in. The more I got into the weathering process , the more I wondered if I was doing the

                        right thing   :o     , but now that it's finished I'm pleased with most of it. :P

 

 

  Augie ..........  I was happy to have you on board, your encouraging remarks always helped to keep me going. I have two kits in the closet,

                        Amati's Bomb Ketch, and Kricks Alert. I think I'll tackle the Alert first, it's a little different. Thanks again for all of your support.

Absolutely gorgeous work Frank!  I really love the weathering that you did with great effect.  It adds a ton of character to your model.  Thanks for sharing your journey with us - looking forward to your Alert build!  Just saw that it is 1:24 scale - that should be a lot of fun, especially for the opportunity to add cool details.

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.
