This is my first blog anywhere, ever. I joined NRG only a few weeks ago so the vast majority of the build was done prior to that which is why I am not showing the build from the beginning. So I will feel my way through. If anyone has any suggestions, comments or corrections about this model of the schooner "Atlantic" or this blog I would welcome them.

 

I finished the hull and deck furniture as seen in the photo below.

 All of the deck furniture, cleats etc. were applied with epoxy.

 

So now I am on to masting & rigging. 😬

Beatifull work Jerry! I´m wondering by the Plans beneath the Hull if this is a solid hull Kit?

I assume this is the BlueJacket kit? I've always considered that a very fine-looking model.

From what I can see of the plans, they look like ours for sure.

 

Jerry, I'm adding you to the list of "10% off your next BlueJacket kit" when you finish.

Thomas,

Of course it looks good all the way from Germany since I'm in Austin, TX! You can't see my mistakes that far away. Scale: 1/8 inch = 1 foot

Etubino,

Solid hull. The plans are under the model just to be a background for the photos. Nothing more mysterious than that.

Rigged the topping lift short pendants with blocks at either end around the doubled main mast right above the top.  3 altogether, one for each mast.

 

8/17/19 

Started mast rigging for the "runners". 6 long port & starboard pendants total which will attach down to deck rigging. Stopped one single eye off the model then Rove line through hole drilled through tops & mast. Strop block at other end. Almost done 2 complete, fore & main, one block left to attach for mizzen. Figuring out how to make the strops on the 4.3mm-5/32" blocks to appear seized has been a challenge. 

 

I have photos of any of this if anyone is interested. In the event no one is then think of the time I saved by not posting them now.

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.
