I wish I could give two thumbs up to Marks comment, but I am limited to one.

 

 

So sorry for the distraction Captain. I will defer to you judgement on the quantity of seeds.

Well I must concede.   Captain Steve is an honest man.   For he said there be more redness  to come for a royal barge it be.   At truest he was..  for not only more a redness hue there be, but the Capt Steves barge is looking most regal indeed!

 

And while the barge may not have the contrast of blackish  and whitish the old gal Connie will someday haveth...  

The redish hue does grow on one and the bardge be most hansometh

 

Congrats to Capt Steve!

With but merely an few details that doth remain-eth to completeth his Barge, CaptainSteve must apologize-eth. “I be-eth most rueful, Charles,” he didst commence-eth, most regretfully, “but I be a-doin’ it, yet again.”

 

‘Twouldst seem-eth that Our Hero hath found-eth one further kit-bash that he can inflict-eth upon Chuck’s fine kit. A-first, he didst follow the instructions to make-eth his rudder and tiller arrangement most particularly ...

 

 Taper-ething the blade …

… drill-ething an tiny hole for the tiller …

… a-fore turn-ething an toothpick to become-eth the tiller piece, and then colourating ...

Thereupon, he were to be create-ething the lower pin and affix-ething it unto the slot which he didst saw-eth unto the lower tabulation …

“But then I be a-noticin’,” CaptainSteve didst try-eth to justify-eth his actionings, “that the Word doth state-eth ‘ ... and the rudder will not move.’”

At this point, Our Hero be ask-ething his ownself, “But why-eth ?? Surely, rivers and waterways be-eth not inherently straight !! How wouldst they ever get-eth home again ?!?!”

 

And, so, he didst set-eth about devise-ething an cunning plan; creating, a-first, an pin for the upper pintle …

“The lower gudgeon,” CaptainSteve explain-ethed, “were to be easy. But-eth, the upper gudgeon didst prove-eth to be an bear !!”

 

To fitteth it, Our Hero didst needeth to concoct an former, to shape-eth it around the keel-post …

Rudder10.JPG.97307d3104cd6c5462c2c3a0013386cd.JPG

“Get-ething it unto its’ final positioning,” he moaned, “didst take-eth me many an try !!”

But, in the end, all were to be-eth most goodly, as Our Hero doth explain-eth …

“I be most satisfied,” CaptainSteve didst gloat-eth. “For me rudder doth, as these lithographs do-est show, have-eth most full lateral movement, indeed-eth !!”

Regrettably, it may be-eth some time a-fore Our Hero can post-eth an further update, for he now must tackle-eth the scrollwork carvings to be adorn-ething his Barge …

“Me father,” he didst sigh-eth most sadly, “be return-ething them undone.”

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.
