Which "Hornblower?" The movie with Gregory Peck or the BBC program with Ioan Gruffodd? Both are excellent. I will bring mine down next trip. 

 

Hoping things go well with the Admiral

Gidday OC.

 I sincerely hope your Missus is on the road to normalizing her conditions. I know first hand what a bugger it is trying to find the right combinations of medication.

Wishing you and your family a Safe and Happy Christmas and a Prosperous and Healthy New Year.

I enjoyed Hornblower immensely.

All the best Mark.

Good day all  -  Happy Holidays to all,

 

First day back on the pearl in what feels like ages, any way  I decided to carry on working from the inside - out,  this ment  working on the canons starting by assembling the canon/carriages, then I fixed the breach ropes and working on two at a time  - I applied a few coats of paint then weathered them,  I also fitted a thin strip of wood under the carriage to aid gluing them down to the deck.

I used the same trick as the previous canons - I drilled  two fine holes through the bulkhead to take the breach ropes.

 

So two have been placed and glued down,  when they are fixed I will place the breach ropes with the right amount of sag - then glue them through the holes.

 

Just two pics folks.

Happy New Year to everyone,     I managed to get on the pearl  today and continue with the canons,  same procedure as before  trapping the breach ropes then gluing then inplace - firstly I glued into the place the next two that had been painted and weathered, then I worked on the next six  prior to painting.

 

Oh an interesting thing though  - my brother tells me he has has a little model prezzy for me coming my way soon, "Im intrigued"

One of my favorite phases to see is when they get their guns installed. Transforms them from a large barge of floating lumber to a war machine. Looking good!

Thank you EJ,   its kind of like a mile stone,  just need to trim back the breach ropes sticking out of the bulkhead and touch the holes up,  then  I can move on to the row of lids/ropes.

 

OC.

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.
