This part has little to do with KIT. It's intended for friends who want to make sail ropes. It's provided free of charge in KIT.

Interesting!  

Do you have any information about how this part is used?

This is called a jib traveller. Standard books on rigging will show you details.

Wow, will most certainly be watching for availability of the kit.  Look forward to more of the thread.

Hello, everyone, we haven't updated the development progress for a long time. When we produce metal parts, we find that one part has been unable to meet our requirements. This problem will be solved in the next few days. We tested a blackening agent for zinc alloy. Here we share it with you. It consists of three parts, 1. Surface activation (I personally think low concentration hydrochloric acid) 2. Blackening agent (I don't know what ingredients) 3. Surface isolator (similar to varnish), because the liquid can't be mailed, I think you can buy similar products locally. The development is expected to be completed in the next week. Thank you again for your attention.

That's some neat blackening. I have actual brass-black, and access to hydrochloric acid. I might play around with the chemistry a little.

 

Thanks for the update.

I found that the blackening treatment of zinc alloys has a benefit, which is not excessive slagging like copper oxidation.It doesn't matter if you soak for two hours.

Hej Trident,

 

that does not look right for me or do I miss something?

 

1.3 & 2.3 are fine. 3.4 is the wale and needs to be thicker, 4.3 & 5.3 don't have these joints and it is allready clinker planked down the wale there anyway.

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.
