18th Century Armed Longboat by Arthur Wayne - FINISHED - Model Shipways - Scale 1:24 - Small

Recommended Posts

Arthur, 

 

Can you help me understand where the Flag Halyard is meant to be rigged?   Or point me to a reference?   The instructions mention the Ball truck but then never return to it.   Ive scoured pictures but can't figure out exactly where this line is being attached down at the hull. 

 

Thanks.

Justin, the flay halyards are belayed to the amidship shrouds on the Medway Longboat. They are tied off to the shrouds with coils of rope. I would assume that this model uses this method the same as on the Medway Longboat.

Thanks Bob, 

 

I wouldn't assume much from this model.   The instructions are good, but sequencing is confusing and some elements are half completed or ignored completely so there has been some guess work.   Thankfully a essential third-party resources (of which of course is MSW) have gotten me through the vast majority of it.   Thanks for the reply.

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.
