Hi Guys; first up; confession...complete landlubber, mostly! I think I've been on a few ferries; so please be gentle with me😱

The main reason I've come aboard is out of frustration mostly; though I've been 'lurking' for a while....mostly to see to the beautiful work that's 

created here. Really impressive and well done.. honest I mean it..

Anyway; I received a wee prizzy a while back...the Tamiya 1/350 King George V...a lovely model of a beautiful ship. I started her earlier this year and 

have been pleasantly surprised at enjoying the process as much as I do...

Since I came back to modelling a few years ago; she is the first ship I've built and first in this scale! The frustration comes from the apparent lack of info concerning the rigging and all the ariel wiring etc that seems to appear and disappear in the photos that I have of her. I bought the Kagero Top Drawer Plans by Witold Koszela. Certainly; great to see all the detail and differences through the war years. I was disappointed that the rigging plans are fairly basic and merely added to my frustration; as you can imagine!

Basically; are there any comprehensive drawings; etc that I can get my hands on so as to try and do justice to this area of the ship?????????????

When I figure how......which; given my head and tech these days can be more of a matter of if rather than when...I'll post some piccies of my steady progress!! Thanks for letting me join and for reading........

Welcome to MSW.  There is at least one build of her here at MSW.  As far as rigging... really not much on battlewagon compared to wooden sailing ships.   Other a quick search for build logs here, maybe contact the NMM over there.   Or look at their website, they have literally thousands of plans.   Other than those two things (build logs and the NMM) I really don't know of a good source.   I hope you get an answer.

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.
