A very aspirational build I can only dream of getting a finish somewhere close to this.

I'm almost done with the rigging. Before I finally glue the knots it's a good time for you to check for flaws or if I miss something 😛 Any hint will be appreciated 🙂

I echo the above sentiments, Dirk. That windlass illustration: where is that from? It's something I've not seen before. A portable timberhead!

 

I see you've thrown the responsibility for your model on us. Very cunning!

Dirk, you are amazing..... I know the Riesling helps, but honestly I do not know how you do it. I am "drowning" with 1/48th on my submarine....

The little "Pin" timberhead is called a "Norman".

I always thought  norman was simply a short windlass bar, not a timberhead. Interesting!

Thanks again for your comments & likes.

 

"How do I do it". There are two things I think are very important to make it easier for the modeler, get good (hard) wood (pear or boxwood) AND learn to sand, sand, sand the wood with heart and then seal it (oil or whatever you like) to get a smooth surface.

 

Riesling is always a good help too 😄

 

"I see you've thrown the responsibility for your model on us. Very cunning!"

 

Hahahaha ... but not working yet ... 😉

 

Sherbourne had six stoppers on board.

I wanted to show at least one (as I might just do one anchor rope) and the functionality (securing the rope).

 

It was quite challenging to do this withe the rope already on board .. haha ... bad planning.

These pictures are amazing. They take me back to a former life, when I was a mate on one of these sail ships. It is incredible of realism.

 

I also like the 'artificial' mess of the ropes and lines.

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.
