I am in the process of building the Brig Niagara, I purchased hooks for my blocks from Syren, and I did not purchase enough. I have contacted them and they no longer carry these parts. I have searched the several different suppliers but have no been able to find and alternate supplier. Does anyone know where I could obtain additional quantities. In the past I tried making my own with brass wire but was not happy with the results.

 

Thanks

I looked at all the suggestions, Age of Sail has the 3mm hooks, but it also includes the deadeye strops at a small quatity (10). The Dafinismus.de web site has a large sheet of hooks with many sizes that  I do not need. In fact it does not look like any of them are the correct size.

I need about 75 to 100 hooks depending on how many go flying into the lost parts hole.

 

Thanks everyone.

I would like to thank Ondras71 for his suggestion to try Hismodel.com for my required hooks. They had reasonable prices and quick delivery.  8 days for international mail delivery.

Ron,

Please put the build photos and text into your build log as that's a more appropriate place.  Thanks.

I would also recommend 'dafi's' etch sheet which contains VAST numbers of hooks, eye-bolts, kleats etc in a wide variety of sizes.

Have a look on his web site, he has a range of etch at very good prices and quick delivery..

Put the commission cheque in the post, dafi LOL.

Could you please give a link or better description of the WEB site. I tried a search on 'dafi' and it did not come back with any results.

 

Thanks,

They look good indeed - apart from the price: six hooks for USD5 plus shipping 😳

 

I wonder, how they achieve the rounded effect, etching and then sandblasting ?

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.
