Great to see you back at it Rich! That is one great Dr you have there, if I ever end up living in AZ i am looking him up as my Doc.

Work s looking good, especially with limited use of your hands. great inspiration for not giving up.

Thanks Nice work, Rich, and Inspirational. I’m taking July off from the build to do research with respect to proper furling and rigging. I enjoy that part of the hobby almost as much as the build. Ed

Thanks! Good luck...I like rigging much less than the woodworking.

Hello Rich

 

I'm just starting my Syren while I finish rigging my Charles W Morgan and looking for a log to follow where the build is in progress I found yours and will follow. I'll read your entire log to catch up, but it looks great with the woods you've selected. I'm starting from the beginning tonight. I'll start my first log tomorrow with the Syren.

I came down to my shipyard to work when I found my ship had de-masted itself over night? I must have ghosts in my shipyard. Now I have to fix both. I'll have to pin both masts but there is precious little wood to insert pins. Oh well...ship building is always a challenge.  :piratetongueor4:

I still can't figure out how I got dismasted. Ghosts I guess. Now I'm busy trying to figure a fix. I hate taking steps back and re-doing finished sections. Oh well? Any ideas?

I hate reconstruction🥵 Friday I had to deconstruct my top mast and top gallant shrouds. Today I’m making rope for reconstruction.  I feel your pain

Very nice the deadeyes look perfectly even. What procedure did you use? I usually hang the top deadeye evenly first. Ed

Ed, I make a jig out of a paperclip the exact size I want the deadeye. This way they are all the same size.

I finished the starboard shrouds. My brain tells me I should put my build on hold until I get the bandages off my hands, but my heart pushes me on. As a result this model will not be as "crisp" as when I was healthy/ Oh well! :10_1_10:

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.
