They look great to me Dirk and if (l don't know the precise measurements) l were only a few centimetres high l would be happy  to scramble up them. Thanks for sharing. 

Best wishes as always, 

The Lazy Saint.

First time ratlines in my life. Not my favorite though. Port side done.

 

Distance is approx. 15" in 1:64. I did not used a template it's easier for me to do it by eye. I redid it two times but don't know why my eye is fixed on a distance of round about 5.9/6.00 mm ... so 15" ... haha. 

 

It's not 100% historical accurate but I didn't want to do the small eye 😛

Very neat work, Dirk. I've not seen a restraining loop of line under the mast cap before. Do you have a reference for that?

Thanks David. The reference is: (Klaus Schrage, 1989, Rundhölzer Tauwerk und Segel, Page 104). To be honest, it's not quite correct, because it was introduced later (after 1800), but I like this detail so much 🙂 But I'm still thinking about doing it with the fiddle blocks and the hitch clove.

It is quasi the german written equivalent to Lees, in many terms clearer and imo also "better". Rundhölzer is everything "round", so the masts and yards.

Thanks for the reference, Dirk. I'm really enjoying your neat rigging work, as well as your "rounded wood"!

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.
