I have just found your log for the first time after seeing your completed model in the gallery. I wish I had found it sooner! I am very impressed by the beauty and precision of all your work - in particular your rigging and woodworking skills set a very high standard for the rest of us to aim for.

I too, missed your build log until seeing your gallery photos.

 

Superb job, she looks great!

I also discovered the log only after seeing the gallery pictures. Reading from the beginning was worthwhile and increases the appreciation of the quality of work. Many helpful tips. How did you make those mast hoops and miniature hinges on the doors?

Thank you very much Erik, Derek and Ron for the nice words! 

@stuglo: The mast hoops are in fact Syren parts made for the Cutter Cheerful but I was fortunate that they also fit the AVS due to equal mast diameter. The hinges are fake hinges, only a short piece of brass (about 1,5 mm) wire blacked and glued to the edge of the doors or soldered to a brass strip (for example on the roof of the companionway). All doors are designed as non-functional, so no need for functional hinges.

Really outstanding work ! Pity there are no similar period Cutters in 1/25 scale, I would love to build an rc one. Unfortunately, the 1/25 Krick Zollkutter is far too small for a working rc version, besides it doesn't have a (single mast) Cutter type rigging.

 

Gruss,

I don’t know why I never saw your build before, I’m very glad I finally did. That is a very nice piece of craftsmanship! You’ve set a high bar for the rest of us to try and match. Again very nice.

This is a stunningly beautiful model you have built, Captain. It is most certainly one of the finest ever completed here on MSW. Congratulations!

I’ve just learned to hide my mistakes. 🤫

I did a good job of that on my Medway Longboat too!

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.
