Really work to a high standard. Had my eye on this kit many years ago but others took priority.

How have you attached the blocks? It looks like wire rather than thread, can't see any knots.

Hi. I just use thread. My block tying routine (illustrated below) is:

1. Rub thread with beeswax
2. loop around block and tie knot at bottom

3. stick the block in vice and twirl thread a few times if you need the block to stand off yard or mast. Rub a drop of glue on thread to fix it.

4. tie the open ends of thread around yard or mast, fix with glue and trim

Hi Tim,

I have been following your log very closely as I have this same kit cued up and ready to start soon.

Beautiful work! I hope to duplicate your work and maybe even get lucky enough to make some weathering improvements too!

On your post above you stated that you rubbed glue on the thread prior to twisting it. What glue did you use?

On my last build I used CA glue with good results but with the larger scale I'm thinking that won't work as well.

Appreciate your answer.

Thanks! I use CA, find it’s very effective tool, faster and less messy if used sparingly. I find the carpenters glue tends to leave more residue but do use that sometimes.

Lower foremast yard is hoisted. Messed up the chain (actually rope) length slightly as it’s a complicated loop assembly that had to be pre made. The end result is just that the lanyards between loops are a bit short. I’ll get the mainmast right, decide whether to fix this later.

Oh...I see a Calypso on the window sill. Is that the Billing Boat kit or the Revell Kit? If it was the Billing Boats, then your window would be really large....

You do have quite a collection of models.

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.
