that's what it's called........I agree,  nice job making it.   Krabbenkutter...is that the Cux or the Mary Ann?

Thank you. I will continue working on Krabbenkutter next week. My daughter is getting antsy so I need to make some progress on the Marie jeanne. :)

Starting to rig the bowsprit. None of the the lines are attached yet to their respective cleats. I have a few holes and lines to prepare before I am able to do so. 

As I am working on upgrading this build from the standard plan from AL, I need to get more chains. 

Quite a few ropes will be replaced by it.

Now that the Krabbenkutter is done. It is time to get back to my Thonier. 

I missed her dearly. 

I have been working on the main Mast. My goal is still to continue adding more details and follow as much as possible the historic plans. 

Here is what I have done and where I am

Back with the Marie-Jeanne. I have missed working on this project. 

Nothing too big. 

Finishing up (painting, staining,...) the different masts and spars



Attaching various blocks and belaying pins throughout the desk. This will making it easier for the later part of the build. 



Working on the Dead-eyes for the stern of the ship. They were solder to a pin and blackened. 



Here they are mounted. 20181116_222241.thumb.jpg.93218b087faa3a7d4703c9541cd873d4.jpg


The next small project is the making of 3 small. Pulleys.

The kit did not come with a water pump. No problem. The detailed plans I purchased had a pump. Only challenge the scale was 1/25 when the ship is 1/50.

The goal was this. 



Step by step. 



I have to paint it now. 

Here is the fruit of 5 hours of work... 😊

Starting to work on the sails.. I decided to use the sails that came with the kit but to 'upgrade' the shape and the roping around. 

Opened the factory stitches, trace the shape from the plan and cut the excess.20181123_234518.thumb.jpg.0f19fc57be06fb0b85c7d42076c75dd7.jpg


Glue a rope all around the perimeter. 20181124_090713.thumb.jpg.d5d6bffa22bd4bbeb10d589beaf87155.jpg


Final product. :)

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.
