Finished the bow sprite rigging, shrouds and stay sails.  If you were following along in the instructions, you'd see I was jumping between multiple steps, I ran out of pin nails, so I kept working the best I could.  The more I work on this, the more shortcuts I see in the design/instructions as compared to a lot of the build logs/models here.  I'm going to push on through as designed, but lots of room for better rigging detail in the next model.

So many ropes! (That's one reason why I stay away from later vessels. So much simpler in the middle ages!)

Says the guy that hand carved a ship full of oarsman?  I’ll take my ropes any day :).

Congratulations! With all of the advantages offered by modern kit designs, many modelers wouldn't even have attempted a challenge like an old Scientific kit. Like Duane said, you should get bonus points both for working with that particular kit and for tackling a clipper as a first subject. Well done!

Really nice job Jamie! I think I tackled that model 50 years ago with very poor success. Those pine hulls needed a lot of work. Hope you're putting it in a case.

Congratulations on completing your first ship model - the first of many, I hope. Well done!



Thanks, and I do think I’m hooked, next is the Syren, and we’ll see where it goes from there.

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.
