Pandora by marsalv - FINISHED - 1:52

A small but irritating point: I made the same error on a model some years ago. The netting for stowing the sail is incomplete. The illustration we referred to only shows the first stage of creating the netting, the zig-zag part. A more experienced modeler pointed this out to me. The second stage is to tie alternating pairs of those longitudinal threads together (I used fine fly-tying line) to form diamond-shaped netting. It was fiddly and tedious work, best done on a jig off-model. But perhaps you didn't want to know this! However, you are doing such a lovely job on your rigging I thought I'd mention it.

Hi druxey,

I know about this problem. This situation describes David Antscherl in his book of Swan model (the picture from your post is propably from this book). But on the other hand, I have no reason to disbelive informations which was published by Lees and Petersson (both books I own):).

Standing rigging is finished, the rudder is in place. Now is the time to prepare the sails.

Thank you guys:).

After a short break I started to sewing the sails. I managed to get a nice soft batiste with a slight beige touch, so I did not have to work with a dye. At this moment, I have sewn all the sails on which "only" is left to add different reinforcement and reef bands, add a bolt rope and fasten the reef points. And then, of course, bending the sails to the yards - that´s enough work.

I have just found your Pandora building blog. That is amazing, fantastic and detailed. I've watched it with bated breath! Probably, in the nearest future I will build HMS Enterprize, which is the same class as Pandora.


Best regards,

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.
