G'day all. I took a break from building for a while, but now back into it. Will have a final post for this build up soon. Well, maybe 2 posts. I'll see how long it takes to finish..:piratebo5:

Lets see how this new photo program works. I'm hoping it does what I tell it to. All the rigging is up except for the fore and main braces. It's just easier to be able to move the sails out of the way while I give her a good clean and adjust what needs it. I've added the sails and small cannons. I need to have a bit of a whinge about the rigging plans. They were not to my liking. Some belays had more than one line going to them. Some were as mysterious as the Loch Ness monster. I just couldn't find any evidence of them. For some I just improvised and tried to give some symmetry to the rigging. I feel like i've deciphered the enigma code with this one. Enough venting, but she looks okay and i'll leave them as they are. There's not much left to do, only lantern and rope coils and a final clean and tidy up.

I've managed to finish up this project. Lots of little fiddly bits like rope coils and flags and the last of the rigging. The reef points needed taming as they were all over the place, but a little bit of wood glue tidied them up. I had a go at making a lantern because the supplied on was too difficult to paint nicely and was only a cast metal one. I started off cutting the ornamental top and bottom from the cast lantern, and then making two hexagon shapes to frame the new one. It turned out OK I think. At least it's better than the original. That's it for this build. Thanks for watching.

Matt.

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.
