Every picture is a work of art Tim. You should be very pleased. I don't know what your occupation is but you should make models for museums etc. Once again well done.

I have completed the pumps, which are now installed.

Also mounted her on a proper base and pedestals.

I am going to leave her half rigged (foremast only) for the moment.

So a few repairs of chainplates and deadeyes to do, and pendant flag to be hung, and then I will be finished....definitely in the final furlong.

Slowly progressing to finish line.

I created a Red Ensign on 50gsm tracing paper...two sheets laminated together with CA, with ensign printed on each, on my home printer.

Probably a bit large....but I like it that way.

Then added rope trim using 0.5mm thread.

Furls are quite easy to form without any special treatment.

Happy with result. Photos of it temporarily attached to model.

Beautiful work Tim, you must be proud. What is your next kit?  I have the Scottish Maid ,  Endeavour and Bluenose 11.... So far have half completed the Scottish Maid..... It's a great hobby . Been building models since I was a young boy. Now 70. It's the perfect retirement hobby (for me anyway). Once again congratulations on a museum quality build....Jim Cleland.... South  Australia

Thanks Jim.

I have still a few things to finish. I need to mount the red ensign and a few pennants, and fix a couple of broken chain plates. Then we are all done.

My next boat is the Master Korabel Phoenix. I have set up a build log here. But not updated recently.

T.

I am going to call this project finished now. It was always my plan to create a "half-rigged" model with sails only on the foremast. This give the model a sense of being a real, dynamic sailing machine....without obscuring all the details of the deck and rigging. 

There are a few tiny details to tidy up...but I am already caught up in my next two projects!!

So here are a few final photos.

Very nice! She was one of my favorites of the models I have built. I love the wy she looks the shape of her hull and the history behind her development. You have a fine representation of her!

 A beautiful ship, well executed. I have a question about her rig. Rather, the lead of her lines. There's a row of pins above the windlass. Seems to me if the lines lead there, (jib downhauls etc.) are made fast in that location, they'd get in the way of the windlass. Is that one of the issues with the quality of the kit or is that actually where those lines were belayed?

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.
