Thanks for all the likes, very much appreciated. Glad you like what I do 🙂

 

Time for deconstruction ... this double block sits not very well under the triple block ....

And somehow the block itself thought the same .. broke ...

I changed to two singleblocks though as in the Alert book.

Triple Block was redone too then...

Started choosing the final belaying points, Peterssens book is one reference for that besides the builds of Tony & Gregor..

Actually, your work makes me kind of depressed when I compare it to my own version of this model. ☹️

 

Only kidding! Well, maybe just a little bit serious. But actually I really appreciate what you are accomplishing with this build because it shows what can be done even with an "old" design like Sherbourne, i.e. relatively outdated in design concept when compared to the latest kits coming out (we all know which ones). A little extra research and effort and **poof** -- a stunning model results.

Congratulations. This is one of the best build logs I have ever seen. Everything is excellent.  I am learning a lot of things. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for your kind comments and the likes. Good to read you like what I do 🙂 Very much appreciated 🙂

 

At the moment I am puzzling over the Truss pendants. Which yards were equipped with them for a cutter with this "older" rig? 

 

Pretty sure the Cross Jack Yard was but what about the Spread and Topsail Yard? I would guess that at least the Spread Yard should have Truss pendants... any insight would be helpful and very much appreciated.

 

 

Cross Jack Yard with Truss pendants.

Hi Dirk, 

On AVOS it is used only on topsail yard. The spread yard has a ring and through the ring it moves along the jackstay (which is rope coming from mast head to the deck prallel to the mast). But I am not by any means historian or expert!

Yeah that's the "modern" solution like the french did it (La Cerf). On contemporary models like Hawke or Alert I can't see ANY Rack ... And Racks on Spread and Cross Jack Yard will collide with the main sail (that's avoiding the AVOS solution though) ... no wonder they change this cutter rig completely ... what a mess.

I am still unsure about the truss (and the footropes) but for the moment I decided to have a truss for the cross jack yard (maybe topsail too) and footropes for the cross jack and the topsail yard (here without stirrups). 

 

I just like to show these elements (and it was good practice for Syren too ;-)), even we don't know if this is historical correct. I'm the Captain 😛

And the block for the traveller inhauler.

Dirk, I may be wrong, but the passing of the outhauler through the bulwark hole seems to be wrong: you cannot

just bend the rope by 90 degrees and ground it on plain wood, the rope will wear-off, or the hole will be deformed within little time.

On Avos it is solved by using the roller, on Alert ... well, the monography by Goodwin outmanuvers that matter, but it looks like they just fasten the rope on the bitt on the bulwark rail.

Hej Dimitry, in principle I agree but it is also shown on some contemporary models. I will reconsider when I have to do final decisions ... 🙂 Now I have to count blocks, hope I have enough ... 😛

If the word "contemporary" describes the models, made in our age, then you probably know, that they have numerous historical mistakes.

From both reasons: 1) people who built them do not care about historical accuracy or just had not dug deep enough 2) the more we live, the more information comes through research - so the info may be not available by the time they have built their models. I have met it several times on ships from Russian fleet - models built in 60-80s made by great modelists are great, but some recent archive discoveries tell us, that they are historically incorrect in several places.

 

P.S. I can send you more of our blocks, if you have not enough :)

Dimitry you are  right, lame excuses by myself .. hehe .. I will simulate a sheave there and/or dig deeper to find an appropriate solution 🙂

Thanks for your continous support, comments & likes 🙂

 

Finally I had to make a truss for every yard as otherwise I would have problems with my rig. I never glue my mast parts so I always can deconstruct things easy 🙂

I made the sheave here for the inhauler.

And add most of the running rig like brasses and bowlines.

And started the rig for the rudder.

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.
