Looks great! At the start of my latest model, I also wanted to include some furled sails to add interest. I really had no idea how to approach them. I believe you have shown me some interesting possibilities! I think I shall be high-jacking some (or all) of your nifty ideas! Thanks for the play-by-play instructions...

Well the day has arrived...Hannah is complete, my interpretation of her anyway. 


All the ratlines were finished, I've always had a lot of trouble when the lines get close together near the tops, so a jig was made to keep them separated to better facilitate knot tying

Sweet work, JCT.  Looks super nice.  I hope you will put her in a case.


BTW, I love that jig for the ratlines when you're tying near the top.

Getting caught up J.

Well done!!.

I will have to try your knotting technique for the foot ropes one day. Every time I have tried to tie knots in a rope for this it gets all kinked up. Your way looks like a good method.

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.
