The modelwork looks fantastic, I am having difficulty understanding how the block is used and how it would be handled. can you detail how it works? for me or point me in the right direction to glean the same.

Thank you Karl, so if I understand correctly, someone had to unhook the block from the rope that held the block and hook it through the ring of the Anchor before letting the Anchor down.

 

From a purely practical point of view that looks like a very difficult task given the size of the block and the position of the Anchor.

Karl,

 

   Everytime I see a new update of your I just sit and stare at them When are you going to write a book. When is part 3 coming to the forum. I need more, I am like a little kid at Christmas time looking in the old Sears Toy Catalog. Anyone remember that far back.

Wonderful. Karl. I love the way you've included all the foremast spars and such.

 

Did you ever discuss your finish? It looks very natural.

Karl,

 

I rarely venture to the Scratch Built Section because it makes me soooo nervous (:-) Builds, such as yours are so "out-of-this-world" stunning that I then look at my efforts and need to improve so much. Examples, such as yours, make "all of us" as Karl just said stare for minutes at each photo gazing in wonder. Such a pleasure on the eyes....

 

I will spend more time learning, and ingesting ideas from this "side" of this great MSW forum. Your work of art is beyond superlatives. I have the Boudriot books, and may (one of these days) try something French (:-) PS: From a kit ha ha ha....

 

Again, yours is incredibly astonishing.

 

Regards,

 

Michael

Hello friends.

Thanks for the compliments.

Part 1 and Part 2, Part 3 later remain single because

of the insight into the ship's interior.

Regards Karl

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.
